Lesley loved cooking, reading and gardening. Family was always No. 1 in Lesley’s life. She constantly had a smile on her face and never said a bad word about anyone. She truly lived her life believing if you didn’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it. She always led by example. Her weekday family dinners were legendary.

She was predeceased by her parents, Sam and Jean; daughter, Renee and granddaughter, Melissa Koppel.
