Flora Jane  Bryant Leitch

Flora Jane Bryant Leitch, 90, of Folkston, left this world peacefully, from her home the morning of April 26, 2021 to be with The Lord; and reunite with her beloved husband Bobby and her family. She was born November 14, 1930 in Naranja, FL to the late Robert Alonzo Bryant and Lula Muriel Johns.  She was a member of the Traders Hill Chapel and attended the Homeland United Methodist Church. 

When you think of Jane you think of Bobby and family.  She and Bobby were married over 70 years, and they had an amazing special love that anyone could see.  She loved her two boys and said she was at her happiest when she had them and a car full of nieces and nephews riding around in her Rambler.  They called her “Rambling Jane.”  She carried this on having fun with her grandkids and great-grandkids.  She visited her sisters everyday, loved visiting her old aunts, and liked to help elderly people.  She loved South Florida, the groves, the fruits, plants, and gardening.  She and Bobby moved back to Trader’s Hill in 1993 and they took care of her dear mother until she passed.  

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Bobby Leitch; her brothers, Robin Bryant and Gordon Bryant; her sisters, Sally Cody and JoAnn Underwood.

She is survived by her two sons, Bobby (Fran) Leitch and Joe (Anita) Leitch; grandchildren, Pollie Leitch Wells (Trey Coggins), Billy Joe (Tera) Leitch and Andy (Amy) Dickerson; great-grandchildren, Emily (Bryan) Johnson, Sadie (Dalton) Grovenstein, Trent (Misty) Leitch, Darrell “Buddy” Wells (Cynthia Rogers), Austin (Shelby) Bennett and Trysta Bennett; great-great-grandchildren, Emma Duncan, Miles Grovenstein and Beau Leitch; sister-in-law, Jackie Sweeney; nieces and nephews, Betty Rennell, Steve Cody, Rick Underwood, Vickie Underwood Stone, Jeff Underwood, Gail Rhine, Bobbie Luton, Sara Burd, Brenda Schell and Morgan Luton.  She is also survived by her loving and loyal companion Helen Ayers who became family. 

A visitation was held on Friday, April 30, at the Shepard Funeral Home.  Funeral services were held Saturday, May 1, 2021 at the Traders Hill Chapel with Rev. Eddie Rawl officiating.  Burial was in Traders Hill Cemetery.

In honor of Jane, the family is asking that donations be made to Traders Hill Chapel c/o 346 R. A. Bryant Rd, Folkston, GA 31537.
