Sept. 17, 1964 – Oct. 4, 2012
In loving memory of Leanne Fetterly who passed away peacefully at the age of 48 on the morning of October 4, 2012 at Abbotsford Regional Hospital after a courageous battle with cancer.
She was born in Chilliwack and lived her life there. She was a faithful member of the Community of Christ church.
Leanne will be fondly remembered as a woman who touched many lives. Throughout her life she shared her compassion, sense of humour, faith and gift of music. She loved being able to create things with her hands: crossstitch, scrap booking, sewing and knitting including pneumonia vests for premature babies and many prayer shawls given to those in need.
Leanne had an incredible gift for connecting with children in many areas of the community. She loved spending many hours nurturing children. Leanne enjoyed helping, guiding and enriching numerous young lives. This included children in preschools, daycare centers, the Chilliwack School District and church youth.
Leanne had a fondness for animals, especially cats. During her lifetime she rescued, cared for and nursed many back to health.
She will be missed dearly and lovingly remembered by her parents Ron and Vilda Fetterly; siblings: Lori (Dale), Mark (Linda), Sandra (Aeron), and Lisa; nephews and nieces: Travis (Jennesa), Steven (Maddie), Beth, James, Sean, Jeremy, Anais and Emmet; aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and her church family.
The family is grateful to the compassionate doctors, nurses and staff of Oncology and the Tertiary Palliative Care Unit at Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre for their incredible loving care.
In celebration of Leanne’s life a memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 2:00 pm at Community of Christ church 9845 Carleton Street North in Chilliwack.
