Leila was born on March 8, 1952 in Bastrop, Louisiana to Zachary Downs Pickett and Irma Marsh Pickett and passed away on Monday, December 4, 2023 in Bossier City, Louisiana.

Leila was a happy joyous child smiling all the time. Jeaniece gave Leila the middle name of Joy, and the same middle name to Jilleen. Miranda was given the same middle name of Joy as well. She was always wanting to do the things that her siblings were doing. Eugenia even let her drive her new car down Dewdrop Rd. Jeaniece rode horses with her. She loved music and at one time knew the words to a lot of songs. In her later years, she lived at the ARC of Bossier City, Louisiana.

Leila is preceded in death by her parents, Zachary Downs Pickett and Irma Marsh Pickett. Left to cherish her memory are her sisters, Eugenia Hockett, Jeaniece Chapman and Norma Timmerman; niece, Jilleen Joy Sharp and husband, Rob Sharp; great-nephew, Martin Millner and great-niece, Miranda Joy Milner.

The family would like to express special thanks to the staff of the ARC and facility director, April Lee, who has been at the ARC the same length of time as Leila. We are so grateful for the wonderful care and compassion given to Leila.
