Obituary of Elsie Leishman

It is with heavy hearts that we, the family of Elsie Leishman mourn the loss of a great mother. Beloved wife of the late Reginald Leishman. Loving mother to: Ronald (Melanie), Linda Porter, (Lloyd), Charlie (Sherri) and the late James. Grandmother to: Michelle Barnard, Jennifer Porter, Kaila Leishman and Ashley Leishman. Great grandmother to Pearl Barnard and Nora Barnard. Daughter of the late Luigi and Giacondina DiGiamberardine. Sister of Norma DiGiamberardine and predeceased by Mary Crema (Sisto), Ormen DiGiamberardine (Beverly), Albert DiGiamberardine (Shirley), Stella Guerriero (Dominic) Algesa Stocco (Gus), Leonora Gaetano (Carlo), Jean Donofrio (Frisco) and Louise Savino (Ted Kinsella and Dom Savino).  Sister-in-law of the late Ted Leishman, Doris Hogan (Clarence), Esther Fuller (Frank), Rena Dixon (Rick), Frank Leishman (Ruth) and Herman Leishman. Elsie always believed that her greatest purpose in life was raising her children and she lived to love them all. Elsie was a prolific artist. She created many oil paintings on both canvas and saw blades which are cherished by all family members. Thank you to all of the caring staff (nurses and PSW’s) at the F.J. Davey Home who made Elsie's stay enjoyable. Special recognition goes to Jessica and Jody for going the extra mile to ensure our mother was happy and comfortable. At the request of Elsie, a private family memorial will be held at a later date. Memorial donations to the F.J. Davey Home or charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
