Weekend stayovers were full of fun bringing joy to both Glen and Leah. Shopping trips and movie nights were extra special with quality time giving them both cherished memories. Leah will be lovingly remembered by her close long time friends Sheila Lawless and Eleanor O’Regan, (nee MacDonald) as kind, caring and generous with her time. Other friendships were formed when she worked as an employee at Maritime Tel and Tel until she retired. Leah was always up for adventure whether it be riding roller coasters or skydiving. She enjoyed her weekly “dinner dates” with Glen and visits to the Casino with her mother. Leah was completly devoted to the care and well being of her mother right up to Leah’s final days. Cym was fortunate to have her loving daughter visit daily to care for her and provide the best quality of life possible. Leah was a very private and gentle person showing a great deal of empathy to everyone she knew. She was skilled in providing help and guidance to family members. Her unconditional love for Danny and Luke was strong and powerful. Their bond will never be broken. Leah will be with Luke and Danny each and every day. Glen liked to remind us at family gatherings how special Leah was to him. His adoration was often declared out loud with how much he loved Leah and how special she was to him. Leah will be sorrowfully missed by all who were fortunate to know her. Cremation has taken place. Burial will be at Mount Olivet Cemetery, Thursday, July 20th at 11am for immediate family members only. Reception to follow at 921 Winwick Road, Halifax, 4 pm.
