Cordone, Leslie

Feb. 26, 1957 – Feb. 17, 2013

Leslie Ann Cordone passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends on Feb. 17, 2013. She bravely fought for six weeks to overcome a rare form of mesothelioma.

Leslie was born in Sacramento, where she spent her younger years. She and her family then enjoyed six years (1960 – 1966) living at the old Tahoe Fish Hatchery outside of Tahoe City, related to her father’s work. This is where Leslie acquired her lifelong love of Lake Tahoe and the Sierras. During her teen years the family moved to Jinja, Uganda, on the shores of Lake Victoria. This experience left a lasting impression on Leslie and solidified her love and admiration for other people and cultures.

Leslie enjoyed many interests and hobbies; traveling to San Francisco with Ken and her sisters. She loved jewelry design and with her sister Lynn sold her jewelry at craft fairs and shows. Her greatest pleasure was the time she spent with her granddaughter, nieces and nephews.

In her final years, Leslie worked as a property manager of an apartment complex in downtown Davis, where she was loved and admired by many people who live there.

Leslie is survived by her son Michael, daughter-in-law Beth and granddaughter Sierra; sisters Lynn Cordone of Sacramento, Lisa Cordone Unger of Davis; brother Dominic Cordone of San Luis Obispo; brother-in-law Bruce Unger; sister-in-law Jan Cordone; her beloved nephews and nieces Sean Cordone, Nicole Cordone, Dean Unger, Adam Unger and Mia Unger; her father Almo Cordone and his wife Mary Cordone; and her partner Ken Davis.

Leslie will be missed by her family and friends who love her dearly and know what a kind, generous, gentle and loving person she was.

Leslie’s wishes for a private family memorial will be honored. For those who may wish to do something in memory of Leslie, you may donate to the League To Save Lake Tahoe (keeptahoeblue.org).
