Lee Ann dedicated her life to being a fantastic and wonderful mother. She excelled at propping up her many children and their families and supporting each of them through the many passions and difficulties of their lives. Lee Ann was a fiercely dedicated mom to all of her children, raising all of her children to go on to accomplish great things. She made it her mission to improve the lives of all those she met.

Lee Ann was passionate about her family and helping those in need. Lee Ann’s legacy is best described in her own words: “My goal has been to be a voice for the voiceless, to assist the widows and children in need. Also, my goal has been to remind us all that no matter what we are going through, there is hope, kindness, and love.”

She will be greatly missed.
