GANGNIER, Karen Patricia (nee Leech)—

It is with heavy hearts that we must share the sad news of the passing of Karen Patricia Gangnier on Saturday, August 5, 2017 at the age of 63 years. She has been reunited with her cherished husband, Richard (Rick) (2005). Karen is survived by her dearest sister Leanne Leech and by her nephew Adam Leech. She was predeceased by her proud and loving parents Lee and Doris Leech, by her brother Craig and by her sister-in-law Beverly. Karen was the loving daughter-in-law of the late Doris (Tom) Andrews and the late Ray Gangnier. She was the loving sister-in-law of Gary (Joy) Gangnier, Cathy (Tom) Dalicandro, Carol (Bob) Burnside, Denise Gangnier and the late Chris Gangnier. Karen will be missed by all of the nieces and nephews that she shared with Rick, her godmother Donna Tucker, Bob Tucker, the Rao family and the Stone/Reid families.

Karen had a very successful professional career as a chartered accountant and was a tax partner at Deliotte. She cherished traditions celebrated with family and time spent with friends. Karen loved music, going to concerts, time spent at Sauble Beach, beach sunsets and walking her beloved dog Bonita (Bo). She always looked forward to trips to New York City with the Switzer’s. Karen took great pride in her home and was thankful for all of the wonderful friendships her life and her community gave to her. Her deep devotion to her faith guided her through her daily life. Karen will be greatly missed by her family and her wide circle of friends.
