On January 30th, 2022 Leslie left us after a courageous battle with cancer. She is survived by her daughter Robyn (Hassen), her brothers Geoff (Bobbi) of Winnipeg, Brent (Camela) of Edmonton, God daughter Shanaye Osborne of Medicine Hat and her mother Dorothy Ives. Predeceased by her husband Dave in 2011 and her father Larry in 2021. Leslie had many good friends and appreciated all of them.
Leslie was very talented and strove for excellence in all her undertakings; Bethel Queen of Job’s Daughters, synchronized ice skating, gardening, quilting and sewing, and showcased her artistic abilities in everything she did. She always enjoyed travelling, from visiting the polar bears in Manitoba, to an encounter with a camel in Dubai. Her travels took her around the world one and a half times.
Leslie’s career involved several aspects, she truly enjoyed her time as Information Officer for Forestry Services and was always ready to hop in the helicopter to assess the fires firsthand. Leslie had a great sense of humor, was a great Mom to Robyn and was always caring for Robyn’s friends.
We are very grateful to all the Doctors, Nurses and staff at the Cross Cancer Institute for all they did for Leslie.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or charity of your choice would be appreciated.
