Obituary of Margaret Ann Leeb
Margaret Ann Leeb
(November 30, 1926 - March 16, 2020)
Margaret - beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother went to meet her heavenly Father on Monday March 16, 2020.
Mom was born November 30, 1926 at home in Strome, Aberta to John and Magdelena Spohn. As a young woman she worked as a telephone operator. On October 25, 1948 she married Arthur Leeb and they began their lives together.
Mom and Dad were blessed with three sons and seven daughters. They took great pride in their family farm, which with their ten children, was always a hub of activity.
Mom’s passions were her faith and family. She rarely missed Mass and always kept in touch with birthdays and phone calls.
Mom’s interests included sewing, quilting, cooking, gardening and her chickens. Pies were baked every Saturday. Her hand-sewn graduation dresses for the girls are fondly remembered. Her grandchildren loved her homemade buns and cookies. There was always garden produce ready to be shared!
In her later years, Mom loved watching hockey and baseball, and playing cards with her family. After Dad passed away, Mom moved to Red Deer where she lived for the past 23 years.
Left to cherish her memory are her children Mary Ann (Lowell) Rossetti of Cochrane, Pat Boucher of Calgary, Bob (Heather) of Cold Lake, Brenda (Robin) Bishop of Red Deer, Peggy (Bill) Mercer of New Market, Ontario, John of Strome, Carol (Barry) Burkard of Daysland, Theresa (Blaine) Benson of Edmonton, and Joyce (Evan) Hopkin of Edmonton; daughter-in-law Kathy Lalor of Red Deer; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Margaret was predeceased by her husband Arthur; son Donald; daughter-in-law Carol; grandchildren Darcie Leeb and Grace Mercer; and numerous brothers and sisters.
Due to Alberta Health Regulations, a private family Mass was held March 19, 2020 at St. Mary’s Church, Red Deer.
If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Margaret's memory may be made in lieu of flowers to the Daysland Cemetery.
