Obituary for Leslie Cordell Connaughton

LESLIE CORDELL CONNAUGHTON (72)

After fighting cancer off and on since she was 29, Leslie passed away on April 23rd with family at her bedside. She is survived by her three sons, Tom, Dave and Steve as well as her husband Tom. During her 72 years on this planet, Leslie devoted herself to helping others and trying to make the world a better place for all. Whether it was working with organized charities or helping someone she met on the street, she loved being of service and always managed to see the good in those around her. Her outgoing spirit and fun-loving energy was infectious to anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. Leslie was the type of person who after a 2 hour plane ride would know everything about the stranger sitting next to her; she had an almost super-natural ability to get people to open up and share. Perhaps it was because she enjoyed listening almost as much as she enjoyed talking, and somehow always seemed to care about whomever she had the pleasure of conversing with. Leslie will be greatly missed and forever in the hearts of all those who loved her.

The Connaughton family will be hosting a Celebration of Life gathering to honor and remember Leslie onSaturday, May 5th from 2pm – 5pm at Belle Haven Country Club. 6023 Fort Hunt Rd, Alexandria, Va. 22307. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Unity Health Care at www.unityhealthcare.org.
