LeAnn was very creative and enjoyed making crafts and doing photography. She loved to cook and took pride in the cookbook she published in 2011. She had a love for nature, playing cards, dancing with Lloyd and spending time with family. LeAnn and Lloyd lived their later retirement years in Mankato at Diamond Creek on Amber Lane.
