Leah and Gary volunteered countless hours at Saint Mary's while their kids attended school.

She adored her grandchildren; picking them up from school and taking them for treats every opportunity she had. Leah continued to instill her legacy of kindness through Gary, her daughters and son, and granddaughters. She was loved by everyone she encountered. Leah was the rock of our family and will live on in all of us.
