Leslie Anne Duffy

Leslie Anne Duffy, 62 years old passed away on Monday, June 10, 2024 in Brampton, Ontario. Leslie was born on May 18, 1962 to Beatrice (Smith) Duffy and Gerald Duffy in Hamilton, Ontario.

She was born with a generous heart, a deep love of animals, a caring soul that she shared with the world and a steadfast loyalty to her family and friends. 

She is survived by her beloved siblings, brother Joseph Duffy and sister Louise Duffy, as well as her cherished nephew and nieces, Ryan, Lauren and Megan. 

Leslie was a devoted teacher. She loved children and was an inspiration to her students, refusing to give up on them no matter the struggles, and honouring their accomplishments no matter the size. She brought expertise, humility and integrity to her life’s work which earned the respect of her colleagues. Leslie was a wellspring of knowledge, unimaginable generosity and boundless love. Her passing has left a huge hole in the lives of all who knew her.

These words cannot possibly sum up the life of such a beautiful soul, but they offer a glimpse into the privilege of knowing her. Even though her time here was cut short, no doubt she is still inspiring us all and will continue to do so for many years to come. Leslie is the kind of soul that stays with you forever. 

As per Leslie’s wishes there will be no formal memorial service. Cremation has taken place.
