Lee Ann and I worked together at the Air Force Agency. We became fast friends. Lee Ann , Joyce and I were a the three amigas. I was so happy for her when she met and married Chuck Doan.
She was always a very caring friend to me. I enjoyed visiting her when she and Chuck were living in Denver, Colorado.
She loved her all her furry dog friends. Lee Ann will be missed. My prayers are with you Chuck and your family.

Chuck and Family,

Lee Ann's death was such a shock. I only wish I had known so I could have at least done something for you during the ordeal all of you experienced.

I will cherish the memories of Sunny and me being one of the first canine freestyle dance teams, along with Lee Ann and Charlie, and JoAnne and Misty, in this area. We had such a good time with that.

I also learned a lot about agility in listening to Lee Ann and JoAnn discussing the events in which they participated.

Lee Ann was a great teacher of handlers and dogs. I will always appreciate and remember the time we spent together.

Love and prayers to all of you, her family!

Lee Ann and I enjoyed many years of agility competition. I ran a wild border collie, Jack, and she ran her poodles. We used to talk on the sidelines about our runs. We commiserated when we had a bad run and congratulated when all went well. Since our dogs were very energetic, we always had something to discuss.
On a number of occasions, Lee Ann cooked the food for the trial. It was always delicious and well received.
I will always miss her bright smile and red hair. Norma Gaddy

Lee Ann was such a fun, loving, free spirit. She loved life, loved her family, friends, and her beloved poodles. We were neighbors many years ago and our children played together. We also worked together, and had so much fun. Chuck and Lee Ann got married at my home in Texas. She left this world way too soon. My deepest sympathy to her family. She was a beautiful person and will be missed by many.

We are very saddened at the loss of our friend. Our acquaintance with Lee Ann
revolved around the sport of agility with Laughing Dog. She was fun to be with and kept us entertained with her wonderful sense of humor. She was kind and her smile was infectious . We will surly miss her.
Our condolences to her Family

Fondly, Sandy, Jonelle, Mary Jo, Diane, Carol, Nikki and Vera
