1970 – 2012
It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. On Wednesday, June 27th, 2012 at the Cascade Hospice in Chilliwack, Leanne Coombes peacefully passed away after a courageous 6 year battle with cancer.
She was born on June 9, 1970 in New Westminster, BC, the third of three children. Known for her beautiful smile that could brighten your day or light up any room, Leanne’s heart overflowed with love for her family and friends. Her radiant personality and passion for life created many lasting friendships.
Although Leanne had to face a challenging battle with cancer, she never allowed that difficult situation to affect her positive attitude and friendly approach to life. It was during this time that Leanne had an even bigger impact on the lives of people around her as she inspired others to face life with courage, compassion and thankfulness.
Leanne is survived by her husband of 21 years, Brian Coombes. Their children Miranda and Carson were her passion and she poured herself into their lives in a way that will impact them forever. Part of her lives on in them. Also left to mourn her passing are her parents Mel and Carolyn Harris, her sister and best friend, Corinne Gehmlich (Kurt), and brother Darren Harris (Janine), in-laws Bill and Cherrie Coombes, sister in-law Charlene Coombes, and many other family and friends.
A Service of Remembrance for Leanne will be held on Thursday, July 5th, 2:00 pm at Promontory Church Downtown, 9325 Main Street, Chilliwack BC.
In lieu of flowers, remembrance donations may be made to the Chilliwack Hospice Society.
