Everyone who new Angela knows just how proud she was of her Irish heritage. Even in the hours prior to her death she was dancing the jig in her bed, listening to her favorite Irish music. She will be missed by many!!
Angela is survived by her son Mike Leach (Karolyn), her daughter Linda de Haas (Roland). Her grandchildren Jamie Kosie (Steve), Thomas Leach, Danielle Aucoin (Andrew), Michelle Kerekanich (Lorne), Clayton Leach, Jonathan Kerekanich (Amber),Nicholas Kerekanich (Haille) Brandon Leach (Josie) and Mickaela Leach as well as 9 great grandchildren and her sister Celine (John) Halley, numerous nieces and nephews . And her family of friends.

In lieu of a memorial we would like to invite everyone to raise a glass of Guinness (or a cup of Earl Grey tea) to Angela on November 10/21 to honor her and celebrate what would have been her 80th Birthday.

Carole and Grant Edmonds:
I have been friends with Angela for some time now and know she will be missed by her close friends Gloria Campbell, Donna Wyard Scott, myself, and especially Kathy McIntyre, who was by her side for over 16 years. We always celebrated Birthdays together and we'll miss her mostly when Nov. 10th arrives. She was a "Happy-Go-Lucky" Sole and we had many laughs. We will also miss her greatly when St. Patrick's Day comes. She is in a better place now, with no pain and suffering, and, no doubt, watching over all of us. Sending Warm Wishes to All.
