On April 28th, 2021 Leigh Ann Burch passed away peacefully. She was one of six children born in upstate New York to Leon Nolan & Gayle Trumbull. She was preceded in death by her husband Paul. Leigh & Paul met like a scene from a movie, randomly seated next to each other on a flight. She was a sailor (U.S. Navy) & he was a Jarhead. Both were headed to Mardi Gras. They talked the whole flight but went their separate ways. In the midst of the crowds, fate somehow brought them together again. From that point on they never left each other's side. They were married for over 30 years. When they met, Leigh was 25 and had a young son named Jason. Paul had three young kids, Ronnie, Nick & Amy. Both welcomed the children with open arms & hearts. This love allowed the kids to view each other as a true family. Years later the family was blessed with the arrival of the youngest brother Paul Elliott. Their family bond that remains today and extends to all the aunts, uncles, nieces & nephews. Leigh was tenacious & skilled in business. She & Paul ran multiple successful companies. They were involved in local politics in Maryland and after many years they eventually retired to Sarasota, FL. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and a liver transplant survivor. She is survived by her older brothers Skip, Doug & Greg Nolan and her two younger sisters Linda & Lisa. Also, her children: Jason McPike, Nick Burch, Amy Bloomfiled & Paul Ellliot Burch. She has 8 grandchildren: Rain, Chelsea, Anna Lee, Ryleigh, Jakob, Rivers, James & Della as well as two great-grandchildren Stormy & Maverick.
