Lesley worked for many years in various jobs for ARC where she was an enthusiastic and loyal employee; she loved the routine and the paychecks. Lesley will be remembered for her love of music, dancing, and food, especially hamburgers and soft serve ice cream. She was an accomplished bowler and won numerous trophies from competing in the Special Olympics.
