    It was a gift and a blessing to have worked and become friends with LeeAnna at North Main Elementary. LeeAnna loved the students in her care. She not only guided them academically but she was comforting, gentle and never failed to remind them to say "please, thank you and excuse me" if they forgot their manners.
    I was amazed to read of LeeAnna’s many accomplishments, she never spoke or boasted about them. She was very humble and more interested in talking about you than of herself. What she did love to talk about was her family and the love and pride she had for all of you! She was so proud when Alexis joined the NYPD and very excited that she would be able to attend her graduation ceremony. She was thrilled too about Marvin’s wedding, not to mention all the wonderful family get-togethers and activities you all shared.
    LeeAnna I will miss our conversations and your gentleness, rest in peace my friend.

    LeeAnna was a big sister to many of the 1199 girls growing up, she would always give the BEST advice and would always steer you in the right direction if she didn’t have the answer, which most of the time she did. LeeAnna you will be missed dearly! There’s comfort knowing that you are not suffering any longer and will have eternal peace! Soar high sweet angel!

  33. Stacey Duprey

    LeeAnna was one of the Big Sisters I looked up to and admired when I was growing up in C Building. She always showed me love, even when I was just a little pain in the neck girl playing on the 2nd floor. I remember wanting to be like her and dress like her because she was the bomb even back then and that never changed. Neither did LeeAnna’s loving way it only expanded in how she loved me, Wallace, and our kids, especially Cristin. There was never a time I was in LeeAnna’s presence that I didn’t feel cared about. She would always tell me how proud she was of me and the woman and mother I had grown up to be. Coming from her, that was huge. Her family was everything to her and that is just a testament to how the Billups Family rolls. We want our Billups Family to know how much we love you all. We pray you comfort and peace. And may you rest in the assurance that LeeAnna will always be in your heart until you meet her again in your future.
    Our love always
    Stacey and Wallace

    LeeAnna you had a beautiful and honest heart. When I was introduced to the family, you accepted me in your guarded way. Your facial expressions always made me laugh. We were kool. When I went under that rock you never judged me, you always encouraged me to climb out. When I found out you were sick we communicated via text. I was coming to see you but it did not happened. Maybe it was GODS will. I will always remember you. Special people will always live in my heart. You are one of those special people. A Lady, True at Heart ❤️
