Obituary of Leslie Sullivan
Leslie Sullivan, age 59, was received into the arms of her Lord, on Friday October 21st, 2022, at her residence, alongside her husband and daughter. Leslie was born to Mother Virginia and Father Ron Carroll. She was preceded in death by her Father, Ron Carroll, Great Grandmother, Cloney Burke; Grandparents, Mansfield and Vivian Foster and her Uncle, Kermit Foster. Leslie married Luke Sullivan on May 15, 1984. They were married 38 years, 5 months and 1 week. Leslie was a loving mother. She lost her eyesight one month after her daughter Brooke was born. She made it her life's work to care for and raise her daughter. Leslie was a follower of Christ. She spent many hours and many years working in her church's Women's Ministry. Although she had a quiet voice, she was known to share words of wisdom. By attending bible study and church regularly, she was a leader by example. Although Leslie was blind since 1988, she had a greater "vision" than most of us. She truly walked by faith, not by sight. She enjoyed drinking coffee, going to church to hear God's word, listening to books on tape, going to the beach, loving on her grandson Noah and visiting her daughter in Louisiana. Those left to cherish her memory are husband Luke Sullivan, daughter Brooke Cole (Bo), mother Virginia Appleby, brother Ty Carroll (Candace), a host of brother in-laws, sister-in-laws, nieces and nephews. Luke and Brooke would like to recognize the love and care given to Leslie by our family member Macy Sharp. Macy's son Noah, was Leslie's grandson. Leslie was Noah's "Nana".
Leslie's family would like to give a special thanks to all the doctors, nurses and staff at UT Southwestern Medical Center, the Simmons Cancer Center, and Faith Presbyterian Hospice. We would like to give our heartfelt thanks and love to Leslie's hospice nurse, Hastings, with Faith Presbyterian Hospice.
