What a sweet and caring woman she was. I can recall her always being conversational asking how I was doing or my parents, to me that was just the nicest thing always there for the family. She was incredibly aware of everything even up to her last days. Wishing her to rest in peace.

Mrs. Lesniewski loved her family. She favored her grandson Ricky. She loved the Lord and it is comforting to know she is in glory with her husband. I remember seeing her at many gatherings at Kolleen and Rick's home. She was always kind and glad to see me. My heartfelt sympathy to her loved ones. I live out of town so I send hugs and my love to Kolleen, Rick, Ricky and Krista. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
