BELOVED WIFE, PROUD MOTHER and GRANDMOTHER,
DEVOTED SISTER, TEACHER, and FRIEND TO ALL
1942 - 2011
It is with great sadness that we make this CaringBridge journal entry. Lee Ann passed away on Sunday, February 13, 2011, at her home in Auburn Hills, Michigan.
She was born Lee Ann Hendry on June 30, 1942 in Detroit, Michigan to James and Mildred Hendry, the youngest daughter of three children. She was a graduate of Redford High School in Redford, Michigan and earned a degree in education from Western Michigan University.
Lee Ann poured out her life in service to others. She created a home of warmth, love and hospitality where her ever-widening circle of family and friends always felt welcome. She was an eager and thoughtful hostess, who sought to create a perfect atmosphere to make everyone truly feel at home.
Her life of service extended beyond home. Mrs. Teagan taught preschool at Troy Co-op Preschool for 37 years making a lasting impression on over 1,400 children and their families. She also shared generously of her gifts and time with church and community.
She loved the beach, and spending time at her house in Charlevoix, MI. She will be remembered for her welcoming smile, her kind words, her wisdom, her warm heart, her giving nature and her principled character.
She is survived by her husband, of 48 years, Tim, her children Shawn (Deb) and Lori Ann Rumel (Mike), grandchildren Merrick and Lane Ann Rumel and sister Neva Rose Kehrer.
