Obituary of Leah Arlene Henderson
Henderson, Leah Arlene June 7, 1972 - July 27, 2020 It is with great sadness that the family of Leah announce her sudden passing on July 27th. She had been awaiting a double lung transplant and was on the transplant list for well over a year. She is lovingly remembered by her children Brianne and Rowan, and her special friend Bill Crowell, her mother Angie Henderson, her twin sister Lana (Wayne) Roach and their children Kelsey (Gavin), Crystal (Todd), Hailey and Colin; her sister Leanne (James) and her brother Leslie. She is also survived by her great nieces and great nephew Hadlee, Melanie, Dakota and Dawson, her grandmother Marjorie Henderson, her aunt and Godmother Elaine (Moon) Mullins, her uncles Joseph Swiderski and Robert Swiderski (Sophie), and her cousins Lisa and her sons Brandon and Easton, and Yul (Penny) and their children Alysha, Julianna and Brayden, and her Godfather Ron Rocco. Leah was predeceased by her father Brian Henderson, her grandparents Gordon Henderson and Mary and Raymond Swiderski. Leah worked as a Medical Transcriptionist at St. Joseph’s General Hospital (Covenant Health) in Vegreville for almost 24 years. In the last years of her life, after persistent recommendation and convincing from her pulmonologist and family physician, Covenant Health allowed Leah to work from home. She was forever grateful for that. We know our loss is shared by her St. Joe’s family. Leah also spent countless hours volunteering as secretary for the OORP (Royal Purple) Vegreville and the Vegreville Royal Canadian Legion, as well as volunteering with the Relay for Life. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a private family Celebration of Leah’s life will be held, with inurnment at a later date. In order to honour Leah’s wishes, we ask that you consider registering to be an Organ Donor. Monetary donations in memory of Leah may be made to STARS Air Ambulance, the Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children, the HOPE (Human Organ Procurement and Exchange) Program for North Eastern Alberta.
