LEPP LeePosted: November 6th, 2013
Lee (Helen) Lepp entered the presence of her Lord and Saviour on November 2, 2013 as a result of an automobile accident, at the age of 80 years. Lee was born in Radner, Saskatchewan on March 5, 1933 to Abram and Mary Neufeld, the fifth of eleven children. In 1948, the family moved to Coaldale, finally settling in a community after moving too many times to count.
In 1956 Lee married Edward Lepp and together built a life north of Vulcan where they farmed for almost 50 years. Ed and Lee enjoyed many winters in Yuma and travelling all over North American in their R.V. After Eds passing in 2004, she continued to go south in the winter and had many travels with her good friends Esther Mensinger, Helanda Hartung and Betty Anderson.
