The Leanne O’Dea Story

Leanne O’Dea is a division of Bowra & O’Dea; a fifth generation WA owned family company that has been serving the people of Western Australia since 1888. While the two companies share many things, the day-to-day activities of Leanne O’Dea are managed entirely by females.  

It was Bowra & O’Dea’s commitment to recognising and responding to changes in the community, in particular the important role that women have to play in the funeral industry, that led to Leanne O’Dea being established in 1993.

Since then, Leanne O’Dea Funeral Directors has continued the long and proud history of personal service provided by a family with deep roots in the local community.

As a symbol of our commitment to providing a personalised and caring service, Leanne O’Dea has planted a number of Memorial Groves across WA. In our Memorial Groves, we sponsor the planting of a native tree to create a lasting tribute to your loved one. You can find out more about our Memorial Groves here.

If you have any questions or would like more information, call us on 9231 5199. We are available to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.



Our sincere thanks to all staff for making this occasion very special and worry free. Special mention to Meegan for her care and sympathy on our initial meeting. Meegan arranged everything we asked for leaving us worry free. Also a special thank you to Kate, who so carefully arranged Karen’s coffin of “Bears” and took time in presenting Karen to us. Everyone who attended remarked on how lovely the funeral was… Thank you all at Cannington, our celebrant and Coleen was just wonderful!
