In memory of
Leanna Renae Prill
Leanna was born October 25th, 1989 in Pascagoula MS and departed this life on April 15th, 2020 at University Medical Center in New Orleans, LA. Leanna is survived by her parents Kevin and Alynn Prill, and her younger brother, Geoffrey Prill. Leanna was pre-deceased by her grandparents: Alton and Sonya Turner and grandfather Erskine Beasley. Leanna was a very special creation of God. Her spirit exuded joy and encouragement to all that she came in contact with. She leaves behind hundreds (but probably thousands) of friends that were touched and enriched by her life. Everyone who knew Leanna loved her. Leanna graduated from East Central High School (Hurley MS) in 2008. She attended Gulf Coast Community College (Wiggins MS) through 2010 and then went on to receive a Bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of South Alabama in 2012. Leanna was a tenacious and formidable soccer player during high school and junior college. She loved the outdoors and was an avid cross-country runner. She was a tomboy at heart. After graduating from college, Leanna moved to the New Orleans area. During her career she worked in many different capacities. She especially enjoyed working with autistic challenged children. In her final role Leanna served her beloved Crescent City community at the New Orleans Low Barrier Homeless Shelter. Leanna had two social causes that she was especially passionate about: The human trafficking of women and the plight of the homeless. The family has selected Covenant House of New Orleans as the charity to receive any donations in Leanna's memory. Covenant House is a local New Orleans shelter for children that has been in operation since 1987. They provide shelter for children (up to the age of 18) that are homeless / runaways from the local sex trade. Donations can be made to Covenant House (Attn: James Kelly-Director) 611 North Rampart St. New Orleans LA 70112 (or) online: CovenanthouseNOLA.org . Leanna's additional surviving relatives are: grandmother Hazel Jannett Beasley. Aunts/Uncles are: Jan Carter, Linda (Ronnie) Pierce, Alison Beach, Teresa (Dick) Dixon, and Pamela (Ralph) Chilton. Cousins are: Jessica (Kevin) Hancock, Hannah (Adam) Thompson, Trey Dixon, Rebecca Dixon, Andrew Chilton, and Brittany (Brett) Middleton. Leanna always dreamed of living in Colorado - so after the pandemic clears - her family will take her ashes to the mountains of Colorado as a final resting place. At a future date there will be a service remembrance at Leanna's home church "The Indwelling" in New Orleans.
