Letta Jeanette DeLeon, age 60 of White Settlement, went home on January 21, 2021.
Born Letta Jeanette Rains on July 5, 1960 in French Camp, California to Leroy Rains and Syble Louise Gutierrez. Letta grew up around the Castleberry area where she attended Castleberry High School. She soon after met the love of her life, Eliseo DeLeon, Jr. They wed February 22, 1979 and have since built a beautiful life together and were blessed with four children.
Letta was a loyal wife, a caring mother, a loving Nana and a selfless sister. Truly a woman who loved life! She loved to travel and to see new things. Enjoying endless laughter and listening to good music. Letta loved to sing and was told on many occasions just how good at it she really was. She loved to bake and always made sure anyone around her was fed, she was an amazing cook. She also spent countless hours making sure her children and grandchildren were involved in activities. She continually watched them all succeed and was there to cheer them on. Above all else, she was absolutely proud of her family. Proud of her Seminole Indian heritage, proud of the family she and Eliseo had raised and proud of each and every one of them for the lives they have begun to make for themselves. Without a doubt, she left a legacy of love and a message behind to always take care of family.
Letta is preceded in death by her parents, Leroy Rains and Syble Gutierrez. Her Siblings: Michael Stephenson, Terry Rains, Timothy Rains and Virginia Rains.
