Wendy Leslie, 48, passed away on Friday, March 23, 2007. Memorial services will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, March 30, 2007, at the Lutheran Church of Hope, 925 Jordan Creek Parkway, West Des Moines, Iowa. Visitation will be Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m. at Lutheran Church of Hope Chapel.

Wendy was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin on May 20, 1958. Wendy attended high school in West DePere, WI and was a graduate of The University of Wisconsin in Madison, WI. Wendy married Don Leslie in San Antonio, TX on December 30, 1989, and enjoyed a marriage of 17 years. Wendy and Don have two sons, Stroh and Dalton, who attend school in Johnston, IA. Stroh is a Junior and Dalton is in 8th grade.

Wendy was a stay-at-home Mom for the first years, taking care of Stroh and Dalton and watching other kids in the neighborhood. She was known by many as a second Mom.

Wendy joined the Johnston School District and was affectionately known as "the Lunch Lady", helping serve school lunches. It was a job she enjoyed immensely, interacting with the kids on a daily basis.

Interaction with family, friends and the kids at school was the passion of her life. Wendy was the ultimate mother, wife and friend. Her best achievement in life was the affect she had on other peoples lives. Wendy always, even in the end, thought of everybody's needs. She will be remembered and loved forever.

Wendy is survived and lovingly remembered by her husband, Don; her sons, Stroh and Dalton; parents, Carl and Dorothy Albers; brothers, Chad (Colleen) and Bob (Barb) Albers; and many relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by two infant siblings, a sister Linda and her twin brother Louis.
