April 1, 1960 – January 6, 2011

Leigh Anne Magnussen beloved wife of Randy, passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 6, 2011 at the age of 50 years after a courageous two year battle with breast cancer.

Leigh was a caring, compassionate, and giving person and was completely devoted to her family who she loved dearly, especially her husband Randy and their two children, Paige and Josh.

Leigh was an accomplished artist, avid golfer and she loved to shop, but most of all she loved to have fun and enjoyed spending time with family and friends.

Besides her husband Randy, daughter Paige and son Josh, she is survived by her mother Rita; sisters, Brenda and Shelley; and by her brothers, Mark and Todd.

In accordance with Leigh’s wishes, there will be no funeral, but a private celebration of her life will be held in the near future. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the staff at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, especially Dr. Lupichuk, Dr. Trotter and Dr. Taylor of the Breast Cancer Support Centre, as well as her oncology nurse Traci.

In living memory of Leigh Magnussen a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.

    To the Alteman and the Magnussen family,
    I was very saddened to hear of Leigh’s passing. Leigh and I went to school from grade 1 and I used to spend a lot of time at her home in Acadia. The last time I saw Leigh and Shelley was at my own sister’s funeral. I was so very happy to see them both and appreciated so much that they were there. My thoughts are with you

    So sorry to hear about this news. I have great memories of Lee; her laugh (loud and contagious), her wonderful smiles, her exotic looks, her being a great mom, an enviable golf game, and country decorating.
    Although we haven’t been in touch for awhile both you and Lee were great friends and neighbours to Cindee and I.
    Take Care
