On October 25, 2023, the world mourned the loss of Leslie (Lee) Eisler, a remarkable individual who touched countless lives with her kindness, love, and joy. Lee’s unwavering dedication to her family, friends, and career as a teacher made a profound impact on the world, making it a better place. With her loved ones by her side, Lee left a void that can never be filled.
Lee was preceded in death by her beloved husband Terry in 2007, as well as her parents Scott and Mary Henderson. To carry on her legacy, she is survived by her son Rob and his wife Kathleen of Regina, along with their children Owen, Clark, Faith, and Nash. Lee cherished her role as a grandmother, finding immeasurable joy in her grandchildren. Additionally, she is survived by her sisters Pat (Ron) Dutchak and Meg (Lorne) Millar, her brother Norman (Elaine Barrow) Henderson, her brother-in-law Dale (Louise) Eisler, her sister-in-law Marilyn Paller, and several nieces and nephews.
Lee’s commitment to others shaped her career as a teacher with the Regina Public School Board, where she dedicated three decades to nurturing and educating young children in Kindergarten and Grade One. As a role model, she exemplified the virtues of gentleness, patience, and love to her students, creating lifelong bonds as they grew into adulthood. Whether as a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, or aunt, Lee’s empathy and understanding touched the lives of those around her. Despite facing health challenges in recent years, her spirit of generosity and compassion remained unwavering.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the doctors and nursing staff at the MSU and Ward 3D of the Pasqua Hospital, as well as the staff at Grace Hospice, who provided exceptional care and support during Lee’s final days.
A memorial gathering will be held on Friday, November 3rd, at 1:00 p.m. at the Speers Family Center in Regina. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations in memory of Lee to be directed to Grace Hospice. Online messages of condolence can be shared at http://www.speersfuneralchapel.com.
