Leslie was also secretary of the Halifax Congregational Church for many years. Her faith was incredibly important to her, as were the close friendships she made within her church community. We are so grateful for their presence in her life, especially these last few years.
Leslie’s proudest title, however, was that of “Nana”. Her granddaughter, Brenna, was the highlight of her life and they spent many afternoons playing games, eating way too many snacks, and giggling with each other. One of Leslie’s favorite ways to relax was to scroll through pictures of Brenna’s adventures. Time with her “Nans” was Brenna’s favorite way to spend a day and she cherishes those memories “to the moon and back - and, back again - and, back again.”
Leslie was predeceased by her husband Philip, her parents, David and Mary (Geron) Pitt, and her brother, David Pitt, Jr. She is survived by her daughter Lindsay Russo, her fiancé Brian Bragg, and their daughter Brenna of Bridgewater; sisters Christine Pitt of Georgetown, MA and Ellen Barry and her husband John of Eddington, ME; as well as nephews Stephen Pitt and Alex Barry and niece Heather (Barry) Baines.
