      Lorna Marie (Secord) Leslie
      December 30, 2009

      Lorna Marie (Secord) Leslie, of Boyne City and Charlevoix, passed away peacefully on Dec. 24, 2009, at Grandvue Medical Care Facility in East Jordan.

      She was born Oct. 23, 1921, to William Marvel Secord and Orpha Ada (Pratt) Secord at Webberville, Mich., and was one of 11 siblings to grow up on their farm in Wolverine.

      On Sept. 5, 1942, she married Frederick Gilmore Leslie at Cheboygan, Mich., and he preceded her in death December 2008. She was also preceded in death by her parents; and siblings, Norvin, Weltha, R.E., Lee, Donald, Frieda; and grandson, Mark.

      Lorna was an excellent cook and loved trying out new recipes, always enjoyed a good joke, and was fond of holidays, especially Halloween when she would dress up in costume along with her grandchildren. She always had a green thumb and grew beautiful flowers and looked forward to what she called “operation petunia” when the city of Charlevoix plants petunias each spring. She had an enjoyment of nature and had her binoculars at the ready for bird watching, spotting deer or other wildlife and could identify and tell you all about any plants or animals of our area. She was very sociable and liked getting together with friends for lunch, family dinners, picnics, potlucks, craft or card parties or just to drop by for a visit. She always kept in touch with her many friends and family members over the years no matter where they traveled.

      Grandvue is where she worked for many years and she loved her work and friends there. She returned there in her last few years and appreciated the attentive care she was given.

      Lorna is survived by her four children, Dr. Fred Lee and Karen Leslie, Peggy Marie Leslie, Linda May and Preston Parker, and Dennis Alan Leslie; five grandchildren, Nancy Leigh, Garrett Mark, Tracy Wayne, Daveon Maurice and Alanna Marie Leslie; and two great-grandchildren, Marissa Virginia and Isaac Mathew Leslie; siblings, Dale, Joyce, Eldon and Elda Lou; and many loving nieces and nephews.

      Lorna is now and forever in a safe and caring place and at peace. A memorial service and burial will take place in the spring at Northport Leelanau Cemetery. In lieu of flowers her family suggests any memorial contributions be made to a charity of your choice.

      Arrangements are by Winchester Funeral Home of Charlevoix.
