Leah Michele Worrick, age 40, of Watkinsville, Georgia, passed away June 20, 2023 at her home.

She was the mother to two beautiful children, Joshua Lee Knight and Loren Jade Knight. Leah was preceded in death by her beloved father, Randy Lee Worrick; her grandparents, LeRoy Bertram and Eleanor Bertram, nee Baker.

Leah grew up in Peoria, Illinois and Danielsville, Georgia, attending Madison County High School and Athens Technical College.  Leah was a devoted wife and mother who took excellent care of her family, pets, and home. She most recently worked for the University of Georgia Athletic Association, where she watched her favorite football team win a National Championship, twice! Leah had the most loving and giving heart, a sweet disposition, and a beautiful smile that touched everyone she met. She was an animal lover, who volunteered with a local organization to feed stray cat colonies, and took the family’s dog with her everywhere she could.  She loved to travel, especially to the beach, where she looked forward to going every summer.  She enjoyed various activities in the great outdoors with her children and nieces, especially when it was warm enough to swim. Leah adored flowers, and lately became an avid gardener.
