Leila Urrea

Leila Daisy Urrea, 6, of Safford earned her angel wings on November 14, 2019, at the Mt. Graham Regional Medical Center after a 17-month courageous battle with cancer. Leila was born on May 9, 2013, in Safford. She was spunky, free-spirited and full of life! She loved to dance and entertained everyone with her creative dance moves. Listening to music, singing and making videos of her doing all this were also loves of hers. When she wasn’t dancing, she spent her days making crafts, building Lego kits and baking with her mom. She was a brave girl who showed great strength while having to endure this disease. Leila always had faith in her recovery stating, “I’m going to kick cancers “butt”. Leila is survived by: her parents, Victoria and Michael; her brothers, Michael and Boomer; and her puppy, Poppy. Welcoming her to His Heavenly home with open arms are her grandmother, Teresa Urrea and her grandfathers, Clarence Urrea and Manuel Jaramillo, Jr. The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of Phoenix Children’s Hospital and a very special thanks to Tajma Palma of GVC. The family appreciates all of the prayers, love and support from the community during her valiant battle. Funeral services for Leila will be conducted Saturday, November 23, 2019, at 10:00 a.m., at the David M. Player Center for the Arts by Pastor Mary Dotson of the Safford First United Methodist Church. Concluding services will follow in the Safford Cemetery.

I was fortunate to have met Leila and spent time with her in the hospital playroom. No words can describe her pure spirit and unbelievable smile. Her family and siblings are just the best and supported her every single day. This girl is the closest any human get get to heaven and she showed that every day I saw her. She is such a hero. My heart and prayers go out to her special family during this time. Leila, you are so missed and loved,
