Mrs. Dwyer was the sweetest, most loving, caring person. It was inevitable to feel her warm calming nature when you were in her presence. I’ll never forget the way she made you feel at home when you were around her. She will be missed dearly.

Although I have never met Leslie, I have become good friends with one of her greatest accomplishments...her son Mike. To know how caring, fun, and loving Mike is, is to know a great and wonderful part of Leslie. I am sorry for all of you who love and miss her. I am in continued prayer for you all.

Our mutual friend Susan Lark introduced me to Leslie. She was always pleasant and friendly. I remember our exercise classes and outings to get meals. Was sad to hear about her demise. My sincere condolences to the family. That smile is what I always remember.

I was quite saddened to hear of Leslie’s passing. Although it’s been many years since I’ve seen her, I enjoyed reconnecting with her via Facebook, and seeing photos of her much loved grandchildren. I have wonderful memories of growing up on Littel Acres Rd, and spending a lot of time with Leslie, as she and my sister Eileen were childhood “besties”. Patty, Karen, Eric, and Mrs. Targgart, my thoughts and prayers are with you all, and I hope you find comfort and peace during this very sad time. Hugs, Marti Cole Austin ❤️

Dear Aunt Leslie, it’s so hard to believe that you’re no longer with us. I’ll always cherish our big fun family reunions at OBX as well as my summer in the Cape (and for letting me borrow your cool Jeep!). Thank you for always being a warm, funny, generous person. You’ll be dearly missed by your family and friends, but it’s comforting to know you’re in good company in Heaven. Xoxo

Thank you for the live stream option for Leslie's funeral. I so appreciated the opportunity to experience the service. Leslie was such a delightful and optimistic person. Her smile and laughter were contagious. While we lost touch in the last years the memories remain strong. It feels like yesterday that Courtney, Michael and John were young and exploring in the neighborhood with the many other Riverwood Park kids. When the adults gathered we often spoke of our children and Leslie usually had an endearing story to tell about one or two of you. They loved you so much!! May that love sustain you during these challenging days and please know that others care so much. I am still in Riverwood Park and would welcome a visit if you wanted to stop by. With love, Becky Cawood

I am so sad to learn this! We reconnected first on fb then when she moved back East...we met at Westbrook College and shared the love for teeth and friendship forever after. I was honored to be her friend and Dentist. I will miss her great conversations, her upbeat attitude and her HUGS!! My sincere condolences to her mother, her children and her grandkids that she so loved!!!❤️

I was so sad to hear that Leslie passed away last month. My mind raced back to summers at OHC and all the fond memories of swim team, card playing and hanging out. Leslie always had a warmth and wonderful spirit that I remember so well today. I'm so sorry and send love to the whole family.
