Leslie attended college at Tarleton State University where she received a bachelor’s degree in science. She was always very studious and hardworking. While at college she met and married Sid Albritton. They were married in Clifton, Texas on July 17, 1983. They moved around a lot due to Sid’s job and settled in Perry, Oklahoma in 2003,where they raised their 3 children. She was always putting her kids first. Whether it be a sick day or an evening of extracurricular activities, she never missed a day supporting them. Leslie was a very imaginative person who could get lost in her books all day if you’d let her. She also spent a lot of time at the schools in Perry substituting. Her happy place was the beach. She loved the idea of sitting on the beach and getting lost in an enjoyable book. She also loved swimming and beautiful floral arrangements, but sunflowers were especially her favorite.

I'm so very sorry for the passing of Leslie! My condolences to her hubby..Sid. my prayers of comfort to her three kids and daughter in law and baby Hank! May the angels of comfort and peace embrace all of you during this time! I'm so sorry...
I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and found great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 - "The Sovereign
Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away the tears from all faces."
Also at Revelation 21 verse 4, we find God's promise to remove both pain and death. For more comfort, I use website at: www.jw.org (Search: Comfort)
