DARLENE J. LEECH
June 23, 1953 - September 25, 2021
She was predeceased by her parents, Bill and Anne Hunnie, brother Kenneth, and sister Joanne Tinsley. Left to cherish her memory are her loving husband of 43 years, Randy; sister Margaret (Bill), brother Murray (Diane), sisters-in-law, Karen (Ted), Tannis (John), brother-in-law Jeff (Trish), and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.
Darlene was born in Winnipeg, attended Glenlawn Collegiate, and worked for the City of Winnipeg for 33 years until her retirement.
Darlene had a passion for music, reading, gardening and a love of Christmas. She also enjoyed travelling, family gatherings, casino trips and the outdoors (especially wildlife). Darlene loved weekends and holidays at the family cottage at Falcon Lake, spending time with family and friends, boating, fishing, snowmobiling and enjoying the tranquility of the lake.
We would like to thank the staff of Simkin Centre for their compassionate care and support. We will be forever grateful.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Darlene's name may be made to the Alzheimer Society or a charity of your choice.
As per her wishes, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

My deepest sympathy on Darlene's passing!!!! - Posted by: Gary Phillips (friend) on: Oct 02, 2021
Dear Margaret. So sorry to hear about Darlene’s passing. I hope you remember who I am, as it has been too many years since we have seen anyone from your family. Did not even know about Joanne. As a person gets older we realize how much family means and it is really too bad we lost touch. Hope you could reach out and email me or call, would really like to see or talk to you. Our sincere condolences go out to you and your family. May she R.I.P. With sympathy. Love Bernice Zapototsky & Ollie Shewchuk 🙏🙏💐💐❤️ - Posted by: Bernice Zapototsky (Cousin ) on: Oct 02, 2021
