Leigh, daughter of Paul and Virginia Smalley, had been a resident of Double Oak, Texas for six years prior to her death. She was known to be a devout Christian and was an example of love and kindness to all those who crossed her path. Leigh enjoyed spending time with her family members, numerous friends, and she especially treasured her husband, Allan, her daughter and son-in-law, and her four young grandchildren. Leigh and Al had been residents of Solvang, California until 1999, when Allan's job brought him to Texas. They purchased a lovely home on two acres in Double Oak, a town north of Dallas, then quickly established themselves in a church, where they became active and made many friends. Leigh was very artistic, enjoyed scrap-booking, making craft items out of wood and during her married life, she had earned an extra income selling her wares. She and Al really enjoyed entertaining in their home, having dinners, and ice-cream socials. They cherished weekend get-aways and looked forward to visits from their "kids". On November 2, 2005, they were involved in a motor vehicle accident in Lewisville, Texas, as they left a favorite restaurant. Both suffered serious injuries and although Al did recover, Leigh passed nine days later. Her loss left a large void among all who knew her and she will be remembered with a smile.
