Leslie Doyle Bolton died June 11, 2021, after a short battle with pancreatic cancer.

Leslie was born on September 19, 1933, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to parents Laurance and Helen Doyle. She grew up in Pitman, New Jersey, on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. She attended Randolph Macon Woman’s College in Lynchburg, Virginia for two years and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from University of Pennsylvania in 1955.

On March 25, 1961, she married John Robert Bolton, and they remained married until his death in 2008. They had three children, Lee Bolton Petmecky, Robert Doyle Bolton (married to Amy), and Jennifer Bolton Burroughs (married to Roy), who are still living. She is also survived by three grandchildren, Benjamin Bolton, Jacklyn Bolton, and Alexandra Burroughs, all of whom she was very proud.

Leslie traveled the world with John, was an avid reader, and hosted many celebrations at her home, Many Pines, in Sisters. She will be missed dearly by her family and friends.
