Friends and family of LCCC, we are writing this post with a heavy heart. Christie Leja, passed away suddenly on Monday May 2nd 2022.
For those who do not know her, Christie was a former staff member and daughter of the former Director Lisa Tjernstrom.
Christie grew up at LCCC. She was a child here, a volunteer, a supply staff and then admin assistant. She always wanted the best for LCCC and worked hard to help out in any way she could. She was a great listener to everyone who was in need of a friend and kind words. Her work was an integral part of LCCC. Christie was always laughing, smiling and even singing Broadway numbers in the hallway or office. Christie was a beautiful beacon of light that filled the lives of those around her with love, joy and positivity. The staff loved her, LCCC families loved her and the children adored her.

Lastly, our thoughts and heartfelt condolences go out to the Leja-Tjernstrom family.
Our “Village” is here for you, always.
This is tough but we will get through this together ❤️
