Virginia Beach – Leslie Elisa Pacheco Leguillow passed away September 24, 2014, after a brave fight against lung cancer. She was 53. Leslie was a native New Yorker, who regularly visited family and friends in her hometown to catch up and reminisce about the good old days in Hollis, Queens. She and her husband, Stephan, met in Hollis when they were elementary schoolchildren. Theirs was a friendship that lasted through the decades. They married in 1993 and raised four daughters, Chivon, Jessica, Kaela and Sydney.
Leslie received a B.S. degree from New York University, and most recently worked with an audiovisual company hired by NASA to produce educational science videos. She loved dancing and gardening and taking long walks on the beach with her dog Kane. But she mostly enjoyed spending time with her husband and children.
Leslie was predeceased by her father, Bilal Abdur Rahman. She is survived by her husband and four daughters; a granddaughter, Elysa; her mother, Vivian, and 10 brothers and sisters.
