The former Leigh Anne Mertig was born on April 18, 1964 to Thomas and Karla Mae (Sager) Mertig in Horicon, Wisconsin. She attended Horicon High School from which she graduated in 1982. She was united in marriage with Danny Soboleski on September 11, 1982. Leigh was employed as a Certified Pharmacy Technician in the Beaver Dam area for 25 years. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, especially her grandson, Zander.

Most recently in life, Leigh was faced with many battles. Her optimism and hope inspired those who loved and fought alongside her. Her physical absence will weigh heavily on those who knew her, but she leaves behind a light that she promised would always shine bright in our hearts.
