I met LeeAnn and Marty over six years ago and had the honor and pleasure being their contractor working on their purchase of a new home at The Sheffield. In this business being a contractor at times things are just transactional but working with LeeAnn and Marty was far from that. From the beginning they instilled alot of trust in me and asked for my opinion in many things. LeeAnn ended up doing most of the design work but often asked for my input. Over the years, not often, I would sometimes run into them at the building or just do minor things and EVERYTIME she was just a delight to talk to and laugh with. I may not be as close as alot of people in here but I miss her dearly. A true friend. Rest In Peace LeeAnn❤💔🙏🏾

LeeAnn, you were a friend of Gesmin and by association a friend of mine.
A beautiful soul with.a vivacious personality.
Oh, that perennially infectious smile that warms the heart and comforts the soul.
You were a candle-light to a darkened room.
We melanated never ill-at-ease working in or checkered visits to your abode.
Back then Adam and Sam were just tad-poles.
LeeAnn, you left us too soon.
Be of no despair, Marty the groom.
Times of grief it's hard to bear.
Family, lean on happier times and be of good cheer.
Memories like shadows can't be touched but it's always there.
Marty and LeeAnn you still a pair.

I got to know LeeAnn because I attended St. Pius X Elementary School with her sister, Lori. LeeAnn was the perfect role model of an older sister—easygoing, confident, and vibrant. Whenever I visited their home on Hofstra Drive or saw her in the halls of JFK High School, she was someone I looked up to and wanted to emulate. In addition to her natural beauty, she had a radiant personality--just like her unforgettable Dad, Sam. My heart goes out to Lori, Nick, Lynn, and their wonderful Mom, Eileen. The Tarricone family will always hold a special place in my childhood memories.

Piazzola and Tuminelli Families,

We had the pleasure of meeting LeeAnn several times at family gatherings with the Tuminellis and at volleyball games where Marcus and Josh played. LeeAnn always had a smile on her face and was very welcoming. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time.
The entire Mease Family

So many of my childhood memories from Hofstra Drive are of you and your beautiful boys. Babysitting Adam and Sammy for many years until you moved. The famous story you loved to tell was when one of the boys got a Hot Wheels car stuck in my hair! We always managed to laugh about that. There were fun run ins over the years where my mom and I were greeted with your infectious smile and spirit. You were a bright light for so many and will be incredibly missed 💕

I was so saddened by LeeAnn's sudden passing. Our brothers, Nick and Rich became good friends at SUNY Albany back in the day. She and I were luck y enough to have been in the same industry for many years. I adored her wit and her professionalism. She will be very missed by all of her families. Blessings.

I was so sad to read about Lee Ann's passing. Lee Ann and I lived across the street from each other on Hofstra Drive in Plainview and we often played together with the other children of the block throughout our childhood. Her family was lovely--the Tarricones were wonderful neighbors and I still remember their tiny dog Tiger who valiantly stood on the front porch to defend the family from danger. I lost touch with Lee Ann after graduating from high school but wish to convey my deep sadness to Marty Piazzola who I remember as a star on the JFK High School basketball team.

Never forgotten .

There are no words....
A beautiful person inside and out...
LeeAnn had everything going for her.
We are all so saddened and heartbroken.
I’ve known LeeAnn since we were young girls in 4H together living around the corner from one another. She always had a smile on her face as a child and as an adult. In the past years a group of us formed a JFK Girls group where we would all get together and meet for brunch, lunch, dinner and shows and chat on ZOOM. We had such great times sharing the past, present and future together.
My love, thoughts and prayers go out to Marty and all your kids, Lori, Nick, Lynn, mom Eileen, and the rest of your family and friends, who were all touched by this beautiful human being.
LeeAnn was a force of nature and will be sorely missed.
RIP 😥💔
