June 15, 1952 - January 5, 2016

Thomason, Leslye Ann

Leslye Ann Thomason passed on January 5, 2016, letting go after one last Christmas – her favorite time of year – and seeing her family from St. Louis, MO, the place she always considered home. A reserved but strong woman with unwavering faith in God, she dedicated her life to her youngest son, her faith, her family, and helping others.

Born in St. Louis, on June 15, 1952, she moved to Irving, TX, with her family in 1966 and settled in Frisco in 1981. She worked as an accountant for Austin Paving until the birth of her youngest son and continued as an accountant for the Frisco Independent School District from 2002 on.

Leslye loved cooking, baking, arts & crafts, being a mother, smooth jazz, and the Dallas Arboretum. Faith was one of the most important things in her life, helping her through the hardest of times, and she was an active member of Stonebriar Community Church.

She constantly sacrificed to give her son a better life than she had, feeling her only job was to raise him into a good man. She imparted many values, in particular always stressing the importance of education. Receiving her associates degree from Collin College in 2004, completed through night school while working full time and raising her son, was one of her proudest achievements.

Leslye is survived by her son, Daniel; mother, Lorraine; sister, Lynda; brothers, Tony and Rick; nieces Angie, Cara, Michelle, and Lacy; goddaughter, Allyson; sister-in-faith, Phyllis James; close friends Debra Skertich, Barbara Irby, and Terry Latimer; and a host of other relatives and friends in Dallas and St. Louis.

Viewing, visitation and funeral service will be held Friday, January 8, 2016, 12:30 to 2:30 pm at Frisco Heritage Center Chapel 6321 Page Street, Frisco, TX 75034 with burial to follow, 3:30 pm at Ridgeview Memorial Park, 2525 Central Expy, Allen, TX 75013.

Daniel, I'm sorry to hear about your loss. We used to be best friends in middle school and she would always cook us snacks while we played. I remember her as such a sweet mom and always accomodating to what we wanted to do. I'm very sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry that I did not know about Leslye's illness. It has been almost 8 years since I retired, and I am not always aware of everything that goes on with the wonderful people in FISD. Daniel, your mom spent many hours talking to me when you were at Rogers, always trying to make the best decisions for you as well as trying to help find ways to open doors for you to learn how to make your own decisions based on whatever information she had researched and could share. She loved you so very much, and I am sure you know that. Having two sons myself, I could readily identify with her questions and concerns. She wanted to be the best mother possible. I understand that she fought a courageous battle against cancer. I lost my husband to pancreatic cancer, and I know the toll it takes on a family as well as on the person who battles it head on. I want you to know just how very sorry I am that I did not have a chance to say good-bye to her. I will remember her as a gracious, strong lady who exemplified courage and integrity. I am sending a huge hug your way. She will be greatly missed by those she touched. You were her life and her hope for the future.

I have had the opportunity to work in FISD with your mother for years, and I'd run into her at Kroger on Stonebrook & Preston. She was always smiling, and she will be missed. However, she's free of pain and suffering.
