Leanne had an amazing sense of humour, kind heart, and smile that lit up any room she entered.
Leanne was a devoted teacher for many years in Canada, and finished her career teaching special needs education in the United States.
Leanne was an avid reader with a love of travel (especially Ireland, her favourite destination), which was shared with and passed on to her children.
As a music lover, one of Leanne's fondest memories to share was seeing the Beatles in concert at Madison Square Garden in 1964.
