Jen and Tony, I have the fondest of memories of your mom…from our days as neighbors as kids to conversations at the many gatherings as adults. She’s always been a role model of mine: a strong, independent woman with an unwavering faith, and she will be missed.

My sympathy to LeAnn’s entire family. She was such a good person and was very giving too. She generously shared Jenny & Tony with my Mom & Dad. Their owns grandkids weren’t always around, so Jenny & Tony were there to fill that void for them. I remember Tony always willing to help my Dad. Her family were the best neighbors anyone could ask for. I’m glad they were there, especially when my Mom was on her own.

What a great Angel heaven has gained. LeAnn was a fun, yet serious and well respected co-worker many years ago @ the NA Home for the Aged. We had a lot of fun working together. She had a heart of gold and will be missed. My condolences to the whole Juenger/Mulholland family.

My sympathy to LeAnn’s family is from ‘our neighborhood’, a special place to live. Even after I moved, the Juenger family was and still are ‘neighbors’. LeAnn and her kids & family were special to Paul and me. Always just next door. Love and Blessings to you all. Dorothy

Leann, was my nurse when I worked as a certified nurse assistant. She always was a blast to work with! She also inspired me to continue on with schooling. My deepest sympathy goes out to her family and friends. She will be missed.

What a sad loss for everyone connected with LeAnn. But I know she is dancing with the angels with her beautiful smile. Maybe she was called to care for my Dad in heaven–she was one of his nurses at the Shrine. Thank you LeAnn
