Leslie Carolyn Hart-Hair, age 66, of Hockley, TX, peacefully passed away on June 29th, 2023 surrounded by loved ones after a demanding battle with a life-limiting illness.
Leslie was born in December 1957 to Theresa and Robert in Bangor, ME. After graduating from Windham-Ashland-Jewett High School in 1975, she went on to study nursing at the University of Texas Health Science Center. Born with an innate compassion for all creatures, great and small, Leslie dedicated her life to the well-being and welfare of people and animals. Her profound love for serving others began at a young age, and it blossomed into a lifelong passion that knew no bounds. Leslie had a remarkable ability to connect with others on a profound level, understanding their needs and offering them solace and care when they needed it the most. Leslie was passionate about helping people and received many recognitions, such as Nurse of the Month, during her nursing career.
In addition to her advocacy work, Leslie was a beloved friend and family member. In 1987, Leslie met Denny, and they wed the following year on the Battleship Texas. Her home was a sanctuary for animals, where every creature was welcome and cherished. Whether it was a loyal dog, a mischievous cat, or even a wounded bird, Leslie provided a nurturing environment where these animals could thrive and feel safe.
Leslie was a loyal servant to God, first and foremost. She loved the church and loved sharing the love and warmth of our savior, Jesus Christ, with as many people as possible. She was an avid member of her church and community.
Leslie was predeceased by her father, Robert G Hart Sr. She is survived by her husband, Denny, her mother, Theresa, and her brothers, Bob, Jeff and Bruce. As we bid farewell to this extraordinary woman, let us remember that while this is the end of Leslie’s physical life on earth, it is the beginning of an eternal and beautiful journey for her in heaven.
Leslie will be dearly missed and always remembered.
