I worked with Leslie many years at CB&T. Enjoyed many trivia moments in what she liked to call her vault of useless information, but I learned a lot from her. Prayers for you all.

I remember working with Leslie many years ago and am so sorry for your loss. Prayers for you during this difficult time.
I am so sorry to hear this. Miss Leslie was my son's next door neighbor and such a pleasant lady to know. She loved her time in retirement and I would have wished her more time to enjoy it. I'm sure she will be missed greatly.
