LeaAnne Christiansen, 85, died December 3, 2023 in Green River, Wyoming where she moved earlier this year to be closer to family.

She attended the University of Wyoming where she met Alex “Jim” Christiansen. They were married on June 29, 1957 in Buffalo and made their home on the family farm in Kimball County, Nebraska. Jim and LeaAnne later moved to Kimball and were married for nearly 60 years.

In addition to keeping a spotless home (much to the chagrin of her husband and sons), LeaAnne also worked as a store clerk, bookmobile librarian and a teacher’s aide. She took pride in serving as a personal aid to a special needs student for several years. She was a member and secretary of First English Lutheran Church in Kimball.

Survivors include her sons, Tom Christiansen (Karen) of Green River, and Gary Christiansen (Joye) of Suquamish, WA, granddaughters, Sarah Christiansen and Tessa Christiansen-Feiock(Rodney), grandson, Tim Kyle, and great granddaughter, Camryn Christiansen. LeaAnne was the definition of a doting grandmother and great grandmother. 

LeaAnne was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and their toddler daughter, Stacy.

Cremation has taken place; a Private Family Memorial Service will be held in Kimball next summer. 

The family respectfully requests donations be made in LeaAnne’s name to Hospice of Sweetwater County 333 Broadway Street, Suite 220, Rock Springs, Wyoming 82901, the Kimball Hospital Foundation, 505 South Burg Street, Kimball, Nebraska 69145 or First English Lutheran Church, 501 South Webster Street, Kimball, Nebraska 69145.
