Obituary for Leslie Ann Gaunt

Gaunt- Leslie Ann (Hayes) (Keddy)

Age 91 of Lunenburg, passed away on December 16, 2018.

Predeceased by mother Alice Eaton Hunter, father, James Bertram Hayes; infant son, Norman; daughter, Heather; spouse, A. John Gaunt.

Leslie so enjoyed the outdoors, had a passion for gardening, and loved animals, especially her faithful furry friend “Feather”. She fondly remembered times spent at “ Kelavi” her childhood home, especially climbing the huge old pine tree and looking way out over the Northwest Arm. She rode with the Bengal Lancers, attended Halifax Ladies College and Dalhousie University. Very much a “people person”, Leslie spent twenty-five years volunteering at the Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital in Lunenburg.

Thanks to Dr. Debra Gowan, Palliative Care, and special thanks to Anna-Claire and Heather.
