Leesa Nicole Gradkowski, 26, passed away peacefully, with her family by her side, on March 9, 2017 in Saskatoon, SK. Leesa was born in London, Ontario on August 16, 1990 and was always a joy to be around. Her mischievous grin and her antics as a kid always put a smile on everyone's face. She moved with her family to Saskatoon in 2014. Leesa was happiest playing with her nephew and niece and spending time with her family playing games and watching movies. Leesa had many dreams in life, one being to become a paramedic, but this was cut short due to her illness. However, she was a fighter right to the end. Leesa will be dearly missed by her mom and dad, Kellee and Andy Gradkowski; her sister and brother-in-law, Ashlee and Nathan Bridge; an adoring nephew and niece, Cohen and Ayden; as well as dear friend, Kristian Stobbs. She was also loved by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends in London, Ontario. Cremation has taken place in Saskatoon. There will be no formal memorial service at this time, but a private family gathering may take place at a future date. Special thanks to all the ICU nurses, doctors, paramedics, and other professionals who lovingly cared for Leesa.
