Leah was an inspirational matriarch of her family. She will be remembered for her indefatigable spirit, whether she was cooking Armenian specialties for a crowd, telling stories from her century of life experiences, or dancing the night away at 100 years old at her grandson’s wedding. Leah will forever be remembered, loved, and missed.
