Leslye Fleniken Newton, 66, of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, passed away at home on Saturday, February 29, 2020 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. A celebration of her life will be planned for a later date. Arrangements by J. Henry Stuhr, Inc. Mount Pleasant Chapel.

A native of Lake City, South Carolina, she is preceded in death by her parents, Lewis Randall and Leslye Lightsey Fleniken.

She is survived by Paul Consolo; a brother, Lewis Randall Fleniken, Jr. (Paula) of Columbia, SC; a twin sister, Louisa Fleniken Neel (Jim) of Wichita, KS; and a number of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Leslye graduated from the University of South Carolina and received her Masters Degree in Education from The Citadel.
