Lesley was born on a small farm in Watrous, Saskatchewan before growing up in both London, England and Montreal, Quebec. After an exciting period of work in Turkey, she planted roots and raised her family in Ottawa, Ontario. She enjoyed a successful career at Northern Electric, Bell Canada and the CRTC. She spent her final few years enjoying the natural beauty of the Okanagan Valley from Kelowna, British Columbia.
Lesley will be remembered as a loving mother and grandmother, a wise and caring friend, and an inspiring colleague. She loved to travel, and could always be found deep in a good book. Her sweet, genuine smile will be forever cherished by all who knew her.
