Leslye Hendricks, '67
Born October 17, 1949 in Las Vegas. Died September 5, 2003 in California.

 

 

She was born Oct. 17, 1949, in Las Vegas. A resident for more than 20 years, she was a change girl at local casinos.

 

She is survived by one son, Eric; her mother, Adele; and two sisters, Denise and Ronda.

 

Desert Memorial Cremation and Burial Society, 1111 Las Vegas Blvd. North, is handling arrangements. Leslye worked in drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. She'd also been a change girl in the casinos.

When we went to Nicolas, she used to walk by my family house at 307 South Basque. Sometimes she'd walk with Terry Fields, '67 or other friends, or by herself. She was a good kid. She liked to cook and go bowling then, and dance, and go to the movies. She said she wanted to open her own beauty shop some day.   

So long, Leslye.

Leslye, I always liked her name. If I was bike riding, I'd stop and we'd chat. I knocked her lit'l bro on his can, for interrupting. Buddy grew to bigger than a barn door. Sorry, Bud. She'll be a friend to the end

Yes Leslye was unique and older than our age. She was a close friend in 8th and 9th grade and lived next door to Cheryl Lindsay.

I knew Leslye since Jr. High. She was an absolute sweetheart. Sorry to hear she'd passed. RIP, Leslye
