Leeanne was born November 26, 1960, daughter to Donald and Patricia Sanders. She spent her younger years growing up in Port Moody, BC, graduating in 1978 from Port Moody Senior Secondary School. Leeanne worked at various places during her life, but truly loved her time working in the construction field. Leeanne lived in the Lower Mainland until she married, then moved to Prince George, BC. Life brought them to Peachland in the early 1990’s and with that her life path changed. Leeanne and John met in 1998 and fell madly in love. That was the start of their life journey together. Leeanne and John established their very successful business in 2012 and worked side by side building their future. Leeanne just successfully completed her Advanced Bookkeeping/Accounting Certification course at Okanagan College, Kelowna, in June 2018.
Leeanne loved her community of Peachland. Her family, neighbours and friends played an important part in her life and held a special place in her heart. Leeanne worked and played hard, she loved bingo, slo-pitch, walks with her friends and helping out wherever she could. Leeanne had a zest for life and lived it by her own rules. Anyone that knew her understood her love for life. She always had a kind word to share. No matter what life threw at her, she made the best of it, and life sure did throw her some hardballs.
She was predeceased by her Father, Donald Sanders (1995), Mother, Patricia Sanders (2018) and her Brother, Brian Sanders (2001). Leeanne will be missed by her Husband, John Spackman, Sisters; Melanie (Frank) McEachern and April Sanders, Nephew, David (Amanda) McEachern, Nieces; Stephanie (Jason) Dahlgren, Kaila Cozzi (Sean), Great-nieces; Hanna, Marley, Anna and Ava, Sister-in-laws; Bev Andrews (Cam), Joy Dafoe, Niece, Bree (Joe) Raheume, Issac, Jackie, Violet, Nephew, Darcy Dafoe, Nieces; Sarah Kruz and Tanya (Robyn) Dakota, Treyton, Xavier.
