Leanne Smith (nee Compton)

August 1, 1961 – June 4, 2021
With great sadness, we announce that our sister Leanne died peacefully in her sleep at the age of 59. Leanne, a member of the Wei Wai Kum Nation, was adopted into our family at the age of two. She was a strong and loving person and we were blessed to have her in our family.
She became an LPN and cared for people in a long-term care home. Despite many health challenges, Leanne remained a positive person with a great sense of humour. She enjoyed camping with Chris and spending time with her beloved dog Aussie.
She loved to visit with family all over Vancouver Island and made several trips to Scotland to visit family there. She leaves to mourn: her partner Chris (and Aussie,) her sisters, Jean and Elizabeth, and brothers, Neil, Ian, George and Doug, their spouses and many nieces and nephews.
A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
