  3. Leeann was my favorite carryout at Chief. Her smile,hugs, and kind words were such a blessing each visit I made for groceries. She had an ornery side that was unmatched. She was an asset to the Chief team and will be definitely missed. R.I.P. sweet Angel Leeann.

  22. I just got the best of the best LeeAnn hugs at Chief last week. I am saddened to think of a world without LeeAnn but she will be the best angel ever (and keep the other angels in line, for that matter!). So sorry for your loss.
