Leanna M Lavigne of East Hampton journeyed home to loving arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday June 4, 2020. She was born on December 9, 1947 to the late Dennis J Lavigne. and Louise ( Flemke ) Lavigne. She is predeceased by her brothers: Arthur "Artie" Lavigne, Dennis J Lavigne Jr; Charles E Lavigne; James Lavigne and Albert Lavigne. Her sisters: Mary Barber; Margaret Braun; Theresa Mcarthur; Jacqueline Chester and Kathleen Lavigne. She leaves behind her loving sister Alice Langlois of South Carolina. She is survived by her life- long friend Lottie J. Burger of East Hampton and her extended “adopted” children James Burger, Mitzie Burger, Joseph and Lisa Burger, John Burger and Joshua Burger. Many nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly and numerous friends all over East Hampton.
From her youth, Lee loved and lived the farm life. When she was a teenager, she saved up enough money to buy her first horse. He was a golden palomino named D.J., she cared for D.J. very much and entered her into local horse shows, fairs and competitions and won numerous awards and ribbons with her. She also had a great love for the animal kingdom, especially her German Shepherd Heidi. When not enjoying nature, you could find Lee watching her favorite western, usually with “HER JOHN WAYNE”
Lee worked for Pratt & Whitney, several companies in East Hampton including Talco where she was a Lead and Abatement Supervisor until she retired.
Leanna was a totally selfless woman, that always put others needs before her own. She was quite the social woman, once she met you, she would refer to you as her friend, she knew everybody’s first name she ever met! If you were lucky enough to cross her path, you were definitely lucky enough.
Her family will miss that infectious Jolly belly laugh, and her thoughtful giving nature that touched so many lives. We know that as Lee enters her glorious new life, she will be greeted by her many family members and friends and her horse D.J. and her dog Heidi just over the rainbow bridge. Fly high Lee, ride like the wind and touch the face of God.
Lee’s family would like to thank all her care givers at Middlesex Hospital Hospice and Marlborough Rehab that selflessly and compassionately cared for her. They helped her fight a valiant battle and we are truly thankful for them.
Leanna will be laid in eternal rest in Marlborough Cemetery on Saturday June 13th at 10:00 AM. To leave online condolences please visit www.spencerfuneralhomeinc.com.
