My heartfelt sympathy to the family during this time. I have had the privilege of knowing Leesi when her daughters attended G.W. Elementary School and while attending Winfield United Methodist Church. During our conversations I always appreciated her quick-wit and humor. She will be missed by me and my husband. Jeannie and Bill Davis
