SKELLY, Heather Lesley (nee ADAMSON) - April 2, 1960 - January 22, 2021
Sadly, we said goodbye to our wonderful and feisty Lesley on Friday, January 22nd.
Lesley loved and cared for her family and friends.
Lesley leaves her husband David, her children Adam, Kit (deceased) and Robyn, her sisters Cathie Singer, Nancy Adamson, and many nieces and nephews and friends.
Her outgoing and mischievous personality managed to get herself expelled from Bishop's College School and was then forced to attend Branksome Hall, which she quickly learned to love.
This zest for life though, carried her to many successes, from volunteer work to raising 3 children. She gracefully raised her kids alongside David her husband; Adam, Kit and Robyn.
She went through the deepest of heartbreaks losing Kit in his young adult years but turned her pain into good and became a huge advocate for mental health.
Lesley won several awards for her efforts in raising awareness for mental health. She inspired people all over the world in her efforts. Lesley was also the queen of all things Girl Guides, she was District Commissioner for many years, and always a faithful leader. If there was a Girl Guide song…she knew it. She could lead hundreds of girls in song, plan and manage huge summer camps and she'd do it with passion and a smile on her face.
Lesley's enthusiasm for volunteering went across the world as well, from her trip to Kenya to work at a children's home, to even just biking through communities nearby her vacation destinations to hand out books and supplies to the less fortunate.
She constantly went out of her way to brighten peoples lives.
