Leagh lived in Nelson until age 7 and then moved with her loving family to Harrop, BC in 1963 where she grew up and finished school. She worked in the food industry as a server, chef and entrepreneur owning her own restaurant in Kaslo BC.

Leagh is survived by her daughter Kimberlee (Mark), grandchild Blue, sister Diane (Pete), sister in-law Linda, Brothers: Rob (Sandra), Dean (Veronica), Harley (Kim). Leagh will also be missed by those she befriended over the years.

A private memorial was held in early October at Sunshine Bay to remember Leagh.

The time has come

To spread your wings.

Be carried by the breeze.

And gaze upon the glory

That an angel only sees

Until we see each other again, we love you.
