Leigh married Russell Woodward on August 18, 2006 who remained by her side and took exceptional care of her until the end. Leigh was a talented singer, artist and seamstress. She was an expert fisher-woman and would drag anyone along with her. She had a great sense of humor and was always laughing and having fun. She loved animals of all breeds and always had many pets and took in strays; anything she thought needed loved or fed. She was very active in all of her children's and grandchildren's lives, she would always be giving compliments, praise and support. She was your biggest cheerleader, protector and confidant.
