I worked with Lee Ann at MCC I didn't know her well but she was always friendly and easy to talk to. She had a wonderful sense of humor. I am sure her human spirit will be missed but I know her family was important to her and she will make sure her spirit will be with them in everything they do. My condolences to the family.
