Leanna H. Kazakoff 1951 — 2021

Leanna H. Kazakoff

Leanna H. Kazakoff of Kamloops passed away on Monday, August 16, 2021 at 69 years of age. She is survived by her loving husband Ben Kazakoff, son Len (Jennifer Leask) Kazakoff, grandchildren Chayse (Ross) Waddel and Mia Kazakoff, great grandchild Everleigh Waddel, and siblings Robin, Chris and Tina. She was predeceased by her mother Sarah Jeanne “Laverne”, father Terrence Joseph Taphouse and brother Shawn Taphouse.


Leanna was raised in the lower mainland, leaving home shortly after graduation. At the age of 18 she met the love of her life, Ben. After moving around, they eventually settled in Kamloops around 1980. Leanna worked in retail at the Hudson Bay for 25 years. Her passion was family and friends. Any event, big or small, she was always there to support and encourage. “Grama” as she was most commonly called, could always be heard in any crowd for her boisterous cheer and famous “cackle” laugh. The bond between her daughter in-law and two granddaughters was unparallel and will never be forgotten. Upon retirement, she enjoyed most weekends camping and boating at Kamloops Lake. A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
