Leah Crosby Goff, 13, of Copper Hill, VA, went to be with her Lord and Savior in her heavenly home, Tuesday, July 28, 2015. Leah was beautiful in every way, with an avid love of sports, especially basketball and a new found love of track. She was proud to be a Lady Buff and a part of her travel basketball teams, but greater than that she had a deep sense of love and compassion for others. Until the day she breathed her last breath she gave all glory and praise to her heavenly father and continually showed others a genuine Christ like love and actively worked to make others happy. From the moment she was born she was always our “Leah bug” and her personality was like no other. An admirable athlete and beloved daughter, sister, family member and friend, her love of life and light for Christ will never be lost as it shines in all who knew her heart.
Leah is survived by her father and mother, Stacy and Jennifer Cockram Goff; sisters, Bethany and Lissie; maternal grandparents, Welby and Patsy Cockram; paternal grandmother, Sheila Goff; many uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends. She was preceded in death by her paternal grandfather, Sheldon Goff.
Funeral will be 11 a.m., Friday, July 31, 2015 at Copper Hill Church of the Brethren with Pastor Maurice Wright and Pastor Vassie Vaught officiating with interment in the Restvale Cemetery. Family will receive friends 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Thursday, July 30, 2015 at Maberry Funeral Home.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Copper Hill Church of the Brethren Youth Group.
