Leanne A. (Howe) Ball, 66, passed away Thursday, November 26, 2015. Born in Ballston Spa, NY on August 29, 1949, she was the daughter of the late Leon and Margaret Howe.
Leanne grew up in Factory Village and worked most of her life in the Ballston Spa and West Milton area. She was a secretary for the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance, a bartender at Danny’s Rodeo Inn, and a homecare worker. She also worked as a Saratoga County Corrections Officer and a counselor for the Charlton Girls School.
She touched many lives and was a friend to all. Loving, caring and courageous, she persevered through tough times; never complaining while always putting others needs before her own. A humble woman who truly stored her riches up in Heaven.
Leanne is survived by her daughters Debbie Costanzo and Cheri Melucci (Michael); her grandsons, “who filled her heart with love” Derek and Dillon Costanzo, and Jacob Melucci; brothers Raymond Howe (Kimiko), Dustin Howe, and Wayne Howe (Brenda); sister Susan Talmadge (Walter); uncle Daniel Murray; stepchildren Norman, Bonnie, and Vickey Allen, and many nieces and nephews.
A graveside service will be held 1pm Wednesday, December 2, 2015 at the Factory Village Cemetery, Northline Road, Ballston Spa.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in memory of Leanne may be made to the Rubin Dialysis Center, 59 Myrtle Street, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866, to have her name placed on the tree of life.
The family would like to thank Dr. Hogan, Dr. Daoui, Dr. Austro and their staff for their care and compassion.
