Pearl “Lee” Leuna Bill

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Pearl “Lee” Leuna Bill. A loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother.  She passed away on January 25, 2018, after a brief illness, with her family by her side.  Lee was 84.  She was born to James Noah and Lucy Allen (Stout) in Chester, AR on April 21, 1933.  Lee moved with her family to Lassen County at the age of 12.  She graduated from Lassen Union High School in 1952.  She then met and married her husband Stanley Bill in 1954 after he returned from World War II.  Stanley and Lee would have celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary in June.  Lee was a homemaker and worked as part of the family cattle ranch, the Bill Brother’s Ranch, in Standish, CA.  This included cooking for the very large family, numerous ranch hands and hay crews.  Cooking was one of her great passions and she always remembered this time fondly to her family.  She loved her life in the country which inspired her artwork including drawing and painting.  She was also an avid reader and would discuss books at length when given the opportunity.  Stanley and Lee in their early years, enjoyed attending area dances, sometimes traveling as far as Termo and Likely with friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents James and Lucy, brothers Burl and Dale Allen, and sisters Dorothy Boster, Jessie Cole and Margaret Ann Johnson. Lee is survived by her husband Stanley Bill of Susanville, her daughter Patricia Plummer of Westwood, and granddaughters Jennifer Browne of Reno and Michelle Campbell of Chester.

In accordance with her wishes there will be no services held, but as she was an animal lover the family requests that you please support the Lassen County Animal Shelter, as she did.  In lieu of flowers you may make a donation to LCAS Trust Fund, 707 Nevada St, Suite 4, Susanville, CA 96130.



Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
