Lesley was born in New Westminster and shortly after moved to Vernon,where she finished her schooling and moved to Edmonton for a brief time. After moving back to Vernon, she met the love of her life, David Wittner, and was married in 1978. David and Lesley had two beautiful daughters before moving to Barriere in 1999, and are now blessed with two wonderful grandchildren, the apple of Lesley’s eye. Lesley’s greatest passions were her family and her home; she had an incredible green thumb and was an avid gardener. Her door was always open and welcoming. Lesley will be dearly missed by all her family and friends.
