Vale Lea Preiss

Sylvania Heights FC is saddened by the loss of U14B team manager Lea Priess who passed away on Tuesday afternoon after a seven month battle with cancer. Lea’s son Alex joined the club as an under seven back in 2009 and Lea took on managing his U7G team. A year later Alex’s twin sister Georgia joined and Lea continued to manage the team, now U8D. Lea returned to managing in 2015 with Alex’s U13B side and even though she was ill, continued this year with U14B.
Lea was a very caring person who was devoted to her family. She was a great volunteer , not just at soccer , but school and in other areas as well. The kind of person that couldn’t help but help. Lea will be sorely missed by all her friends in the club. We offer Thomas , Alex and Georgia our deepest condolences and will miss Lea’s presence on the sidelines at Tree Stadium.
