Leah was predeceased by her mother Alice (2003) and father Hermus Chevrefils (1977).
Leah was cremated at Clayton’s Funeral Home. A tea was held at Quesnel Golden Center where a friend of the family Bruce Kerr read her eulogy, poems and thoughts written by family and friends.
Leah’s favorite songs and a collage from birth to present were a special feature of the service.
