I will always remember her as Mrs. Brillhart couldn't get past that since she was a wonderful teacher of Home Economics at Northwest Junior High School. My fondest memory of this beautiful lady was how well she addressed our foods class after we received notice of President Kennedy's assassination. Later,,we worked together teaching at St. Peter's School she was the BEST!

We were shocked and saddened to learn about the death of Lezlie. We were friends with Lezlie and Bob for many years in Kansas City, Kansas. Lezlie's parents and later on step-father, Leo, lived across the street from us. They were all a kind and loving family. Even though we have been gone from the neighborhood for about 15 years we will always cherish our friendship with Bob and Lezlie and their family. We want to extend our heartfelt sympathy to Bob and the entire family. Lezlie will be missed by her family and all who knew her.

Lezlie was great at so many things. And she was a great friend to me. She was always ready to lend a hand and offer helpful advice. I will miss talking with her, listening to her stories, hearing the latest about her daughters and her grandchildren, getting her quilting updates, and I will always remember the delicious breads she would bake. With love and prayers for Bob and her family. -Louise
