My heart aches for Jim, James, Meghan, Brooke and their families. Lesly was an amazing lady and her heart was larger than life. I first met Lealy in 2002, my husband and I were sole care givers for our grandparents, and she was their banking personal banker. I would run into Lesly often in town while running errands and always a pleasure to chat with. And then by the grace of God I had the pleasure to work with Lesly for the last 3 years, after my husband passed I began working at Huron Community Bank and Lesly and I met up again. She will definitely be missed - sending prayers, love and hugs to her beautiful family that she so deeply loved!
