We love you Lea.
On Friday, March 13th, 2020, with broken and saddened hearts, we say goodbye to Lea Lamb Auckland, age 63 after a brief battle with cancer. Our Lea was full of life, full of love and empathy. To all who knew Lea, she was more than just a mom, daughter, sister, aunt or friend. To her husband Cliff, daughter Kendra, son Calen and daughter-in-law Jenny, Lea was a role model, buddy and more than anything supportive of everyone.
Lea, born June 8, 1957 in Stratford, Ontario said goodbye to her surviving siblings: Sue (Rick) Goetz, Andy (Gail) Lamb, Rob (Kim) Lamb and Jennifer (Simon) Taite. In-laws to Lea, in grief of the suddenness of Lea’s departure, Mark & Colleen Winter, Richard & Tammy Auckland, and Joyce Auckland, grandma.
Aunty Lea watches from a distance her nieces and grand nieces and nephews and grand nephews: Lindsay & Matt, Ella, Abby, Michelle & Tony, Isla, Taylor, Rianne & Matt, Crissie & Carl, Sabastian, Nat & Viki, Billy and Shane.
Lea’s friendships are extended from here locally to across Canada; earned through her tireless hours of volunteering, fundraising, support of family and friends in need. She worked 17 years with the Saskatoon School District, leaving behind many immediate attachments of Greystone Elementary. Supporting and fundraising for the Saskatoon Pipes and Drums, College Park Association, and Pet Rescue Organizations were among a few of Lea’s dedicated accomplishments that she will be always remember and appreciated for.
Plants, plants, and more plants. We must talk and smile about the plants we have all had learn about or adopted – strict and guiding rules with guarantees of being rescued. Lea attended Guelf University in Ontario for Horticultural studies. She did love her plants, gardens and held a second job with Clements Farm Greenhouses. We know Clements whether you are from Saskatoon or not! J
Love makes the world go round, up and down, leaving short of 30 years this July 14th. Married in 1990 in Victoria, BC. Cliff and Lea started with fundraising and community events creating and growing a community dart club at their local pub. Cliff & Lea moved to Calgary for 5 years where they started their family, until 1996 when they moved and bought their home in Saskatoon.
We will celebrate all our stories and memories in the upcoming Celebration, to be announced via social media, connecting friends and family together in support of Lea’s life accomplishments. Til then…
