Ms Newton was a beautiful person. She was my 1st grade teacher at Marrington Elementary and also attended my college graduation in 2005. She had a beautiful soul. I just learned about her passing this morning and am so sorry for your loss. She is definitely an angel in heaven.

Very sad to hear of Lesyle's passing. I knew her as a wonderful first grade teacher. Her students loved her and she loved them. I will not forget her.

Lou and Randy, We loved Les and will never forget her kindness and beautiful smile! She is now in the arms of Jesus and with her Mama and Daddy! God's promise is that we will see her again one day and what a day that will will be! Love you to all.

Dear Paul, I liked Leslye the day I met her, and was happy to add her to the Family Tree. She was so sweet and so much fun. It was difficult to face the fact that she was suffering so and that eventually she would leave us, but I am so relieved that her pain has ended and I know she rests today in God's Loving Arms!

My thoughts and prayers are with Les' family and to my nephew Paul. The loss of someone so important in one's life is unimaginable. I feel your sorrow in my heart and soul. Our consolation is that Leslye now has joy at seeing the face of God and she is resting comfortably in his loving arms.

So Sad that this World has lost one of its finest Persons. Grew up with Les, Lou and Randy...Les was Always First Class, Friendly and Had an Endearing Smile. I know She was Beautiful Inside and Out. Lou, You will remember, Les and You were My First 2 Girlfriends by naming our 'Farm Pet' after You Both. Though all too brief, from this Obit I now KNOW She had an Awesome Impact for 33+ years on the Lives of Young People and am Sure She was Loved by them all and they were Blessed to have Les as their Teacher.

My Best to Randy and Lou, other family and friends in this loss, knowing Les is in Heaven at Full Peace.

Les was a dear friend and friend of many kids in our First Tee golf and life skills program. She volunteered to help at Family Golf Days, program registration, and basically anytime asked. Heaven received a special angel. Hope the fairways are friendly and you make all your putts in Heaven! We'll miss you Les. Love you, Bucky and your Friends at First Tee.

Dear Lou and Randy,

I was very saddened to hear of Les' passing. David Welch included me in a group text message just after he heard the news last Saturday. Both of you, as well as your family members have been in my thoughts and prayers. Les was always so kind to me and I have appreciated that over the years. Please extend my condolences to her family members I do not know.
