Leita Jean Fahlman

July 23, 1934 - February 21, 2013


Sadly, Leita Simard Lockstead Fahlman, a long-time resident of Texada Island and Powell River, passed away after a short battle with cancer.

Leita is survived by her loving husband Dan Fahlman who was by her side as she drew her last breath. She also leaves behind her children Stanley, Sylvia (Johnny), Gina, Jennifer (Greg) and heartbroken granddaughters Kristyn Moore, Stephanie Moore, Teresa Agostino and Makayla Hicks, much loved brothers Lawrence (Alice) and Alan (Rolande) and several nieces and nephews. She also leaves her dear friend of over 70 years Cecilia Charette. Leita was predeceased by her parents Leo and Merle Simard, her husbands Don Lockstead and Jan Vantaves and her precious grandson Nick Agostino who used to call Leita and Dan the “coolest grandparents in the world.”

Leita was active in the community and politics till the end of her life. She was also a music teacher and an athlete participating in the BC Senior Games Swim Team for the last several years where she won many medals. She also leaves her dear and valued friends who were part of her very active musical life, particularly Myrna and Faye with whom she played piano daily and the many friends and teammates she had from her swim team and the communities of Powell River and Texada.
