Leigh was giving, loving and caring. She always thought of others above herself. We remember Leigh for her sharp memory and feisty independence. Leigh enjoyed many activities, including loving her dogs, riding her Harley, baking, gardening, soaking up the sun at the ocean and spending quality time with family and friends. Leigh’s life motto has always been LOVE LOVE LOVE! Her daughter Shawna, the light of Leigh’s life, will always treasure the strong and beautiful bond she had with her Mom.
