Obituary of Gladys Leslie
Gladys Irene Leslie (nee Gracey)
Gladys Leslie died peacefully at her home at the Glynnwood Retirement Residence in Thornhill, Ontario on Monday, July 2, 2018. Born on December 23, 1915 in Wellandport, Ontario, Gladys was the daughter of the late Clarence Gracey and Elva Jamieson Gracey, and the beloved wife of the late Norman A. Leslie (1991), longtime executive of Miller Paving Limited. Gladys is survived by her loving sister Muriel Rhodes. She will be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews, including Ted Rhodes, Doug Rhodes and Bob Rhodes and their families, and her brother-in-law Dure Brandon. She will be missed by long-time friends, the Millar family.
Gladys was passionate about golf and was good at it! She was a member of the Thornhill Golf and Country Club, the Donalda Club and the Cedar Brae Golf Club. And she loved to travel. She and Norm were generous and thoughtful hosts and shared their lives with family and friends at their home in Thornhill and their farm on Howe Island in the Thousand Islands. Thanks are extended to the staff at the Glynnwood Retirement Residence and Gladys’ private caregivers for their care and attention over the past several years.
