Lea was born and raised in Bassano, Alberta, attended school in the Bassano/Patricia area, and later attended Briercrest College and Seminary in Caronport, Saskatchewan. Lea eventually moved to Calgary, Alberta, where she raised her small family, and was active in her church and community. Lea enjoyed modeling for a period of time and also owned a small travel agency. Lea was known for her loving and kind spirit, and people were drawn to her because of these traits. Though in later years as she suffered the effects of Alzheimer's, Lea still maintained her cheerful and kind disposition. Lea and Virgil moved to Utah in 2002 where they resided until their passing.
She was laid to rest at the Bountiful City Cemetery, Bountiful, Utah. Floral tributes gratefully declined in favor of contributions to the Alzheimer's Association - Utah Chapter, 855 East 4800 South, Suite 100, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84107, or charity of your choice.
