Leslie Elise Sands, 69, was welcomed into her Savior’s arms on Sunday morning, November 29, 2020. Following a grueling battle with ALS, she passed away peacefully in her Los Osos home with her husband, Jon, by her side.
Born to Corinne and Larry Fuller in Pasadena, CA, Leslie was a native Californian, deeply rooted in the San Gabriel foothills. Leslie devoted her talents to caring for her husband, raising their three daughters, and active advocacy in local community and church life on the Central Coast.
Preceded in death by grandmother Ida Augusta Smith, Corinne Janet Fuller, and Lawrence William Fuller, Leslie is lovingly remembered by Jon Maynard Sands; her daughters, Elizabeth Marie Crusey, Kathryn Louise Sands, and Laura Elise Freeman; one grandson, Findley Fuller Crusey; her brother and sister, David Lawrence Fuller and Julie Lyn McIntosh; five nieces; and countless friends.
