    We will miss Leslie very much at Project Literacy. She was a kind human being who enjoyed helping those in need in her community. Leslie volunteered with us several hours a week for over two years and made a positive impact in the lives of her learners who will also miss her dearly. She was a wonderful tutor and our learning centre won’t be the same without her. We would like to thank her family for sharing her with us. Please accept our most sincere condolences.

    How saddened we are to learn of Leslie’s passing. We last saw Leslie only a few months ago at a Kelowna Rockets hockey game where she looked very happy. I will cherish memories of our Legion volunteering time together while watching hockey and playing the meat draw. I loved her life stories and the love of her children. She was a very proud mom.
    What a great person the world has lost and how lucky we were to have been able to spend some of her life with her. Truly a gift. Condolences and love to a family who must be missing her dearly. Rest easy friend and see you again on the other side.

  • Sherry Miller says:

    I am so heartbroken to hear of Leslie’s passing. We were best friends for many years but hadn’t spoken in quite a while. . My son had just asked me if I had heard from her lately so I googled her and found her obituary. I am so at a loss for words. She was quite the character and I’ve never laughed so hard in my life when I was with her. She was a good soul albeit a lost one. I will cherish my memories of her always. Thank you for being my friend Leslie! Love you!

    Dear Leslie you were such a fun crazy gal. I’ll never forget the year we spent as roomies in Trenton in 1978. So very sad to hear this news of your passing. RIP Dear Leslie and sincere condolences to your family
    Love Laurie xoxo
