She was born in Abilene, Texas June 11, 1968, in total love and happiness to Jon Ella Fragua and her former husband, but after this union ended, Jon Ella married Granville Long of Winters, Texas. Leigh Anne was adopted by Granville Long and the family moved to California as her father was assigned there by his occupation with the Federal Government. They lived in California for eight years and were thrilled to be assigned to Lawton, where Leigh Anne attended Elgin school from fifth grade until her graduation from Elgin High School in 1986. She attended Cameron University majoring in Chemistry, but her greatest joy and accomplishment were her three sons, Tyler Watts, Turner Watts, and Trevor Watts.
Her wonderful living siblings are Roger Long and wife, Cindy Long of Cyril, Oklahoma and their two sons, Jacob and Ryan Long; her special sister, Stephanie West who lives in Channing, Texas with her husband, Jay West, and their daughter, Savannah West; her brother Terry Long and his wife Teresa Long of Paris, Kentucky and their two daughters, Terra Long and Tessa Cauthren.
She also leaves behind her aunt Mary Lynn Averett and her husband Larry of Arlington, Texas; her uncle Roger Dale Long, and his wife Sandra Jean Long and their two daughters Jodie Long and Jenny Duncan, all of Dennison, Texas; her former sister in law Shelley Watts Stevenson, of Oklahoma City and her daughters MacKenzie and Markie Stevenson, and her former husband, Mark Watts; as well as a host of other loving cousins and extended family. She was welcomed in heaven by her maternal grandmother, Pauline Fragua of Abilene, Texas; her maternal grandfather Louis Fragua of Corpus Christi, Texas; her paternal grandfather, Granville S. Long and paternal grandmother, Lois Long, both of Winters, Texas; also, her special maternal uncle, Paul Fragua, M.D. of Brownwood, Texas and her aunt Debra Krebbs of Kerrville, Texas.
