Lesa is fondly remembered by many friends who she considered family. She treated everyone with respect and in turn was well respected and loved by everyone who knew her. She loved boating, golfing, fishing and enjoying a glass of wine with her girlfriends. But most of all she loved spending time with her family, giving the best hugs, making everyone laugh and creating special memories in the kitchen with her grandkids making banana bread and cookies. Her undeniable and infectious zest for life is what we will remember most about her and what we will continue to carry forward in her memory.
Lesa was a dedicated and highly regarded Director of Human Resources at Community Living Chatham-Kent for nearly 35 years.
Cremation has taken place. Visitation will take place on Tuesday July 12,2022 at the Blenheim Community Funeral Home from 2-4pm and 7-9pm.
A celebration of life is currently being planned, date to be announced.
