Obituary Condolences

HORTON, LeeAnn Agnelli Passed away peacefully at home on February 26, 2012 after a courageous six- year battle with cancer. She was 46. LeeAnn was loved and cherished by her husband of 21 years, Kenneth, and their three children, Anna Katharine, Sophie Lee and Andrew Kenneth, all of Needham. She was the beloved daughter of John Joseph Agnelli and Diane Mary (Maggiacomo) Agnelli, of Naples, FL, and the beloved sister of Paul Frederick Agnelli and his wife Kristin (Baum) Agnelli, of Canton, GA. She loved many aunts, uncles and cousins, most of whom reside in Canada, and a nephew, and was dear to her in-laws, Virgil and Claudette Horton of Cumming, GA. Visiting hours at the Eaton Funeral Home, 1351 Highland Ave., NEEDHAM, on Friday from 3:30-7:30 PM. Relatives and friends are kindly invited. Following a private interment, a Celebration of LeeAnn's life will be held on LeeAnn's Birthday at the Congregational Church of Needham, 1154 Great Plain Ave. Saturday March 3, 2012 at 11:00 AM. She graduated from Dartmouth College and Boston College Law School. In Europe, she was a specialist in US expatriate taxation in KPMG's Paris office. Upon returning to Boston, she joined the firm producing TaxCut software and oversaw development for their suite of state consumer tax software programs. She loved hiking, biking, skiing, Muskoka, Hawaii, and most of all, spending time with family. Despite this inexplicable loss, God has given LeeAnn and her family many blessings. Among them are caring family, supportive friends and neighbors, the hope that sprang from knowing for six years that, while underfunded, research to cure or manage LeeAnn's cancer was ongoing, the wisdom and compassion of excellent physicians and nurses at Beth Israel Deaconess and then Mass General, and the spiritual support of our church, minister and weekly cancer prayer support group. We will always love LeeAnn and she will always be with us. Please omit Flowers.
