Barbara Ann Leming

November 26, 1937 - May 23, 2020

Barbara “Ann” Leming, age 82, left us on Saturday, May 23, 2020. She was born Native American (Choctaw) on November 26, 1937 in Blackwell, Oklahoma.

Ann married Joe Agnew Leming on November 1, 1959. They just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Theirs was a marriage deserved of a lifetime as true loves, soul mates and best friends. She has two sons, Alan Joe Leming married to Patricia, and Michael Agnew Leming married to Wendy. She was an Army bride which often required her to raise their sons alone while Joe served several tours in the Vietnam war. She was a very loving mother, but also could keep the boys in check when needed. Joe and Ann landed at Fort Eustis Virginia where they finally settled and made Newport News their home for the last 35 years.

Ann, more fondly called “Nana”, has 5 grandchildren, Michael Agnew Leming II, Rachel Ashley Siscar, Allison Jo Leming, Mercedes Samantha Leming, and Taylor Christian Leming. She also has 8 great grandchildren, Abbie, Mikael, Katelynn, Melina, Jaime “JamJam”, Jonah, Mercedes “Nevi”, and Raina. She absolutely loved her family and would light up whenever her sons or grandchildren walked into a room.

In light of the current pandemic restrictions, there will be a very small memorial by invitation only.

Having survived cancer twice, Ann would appreciate donations on her behalf to the American Cancer Society in lieu of flowers. The family would enjoy reading your memories. Please share on this website as provided by Altmeyer Funeral Home Denbigh Chapel.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
