To Lisa, Debbie and Kirstin I am so very sorry for your loss! I remember her spunkiness and independent nature. She was always laughing (at us probably). I pray your memories help you through this time!

Leslie helped me greatly when I retired to Marlborough 16 years ago. She was in the management office and as the job I had had for 34 years included housing and all my meals and I am single, I was confused about the most basic aspects of normal living. and Leslie told me what to do and how to do it. She was stunningly well-dressed in the office every day, and when she and I got better acquainted, I learned about her large family and I gave some dining room chairs to a grandson. Leslie was what can be termed "a real lady" and I am sorry that her last years were not better years. To her sister Pam and the rest of her family, I extend very sincere condolences. Knowing her was a true pleasure.

We are very sad to hear about Leslie’s passing. She was a part of our family for many years and made Damon very happy in his final years. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. Janine and Rich
