Leslie Brin Andrews


Leslie Brin Andrews embraced everything she did with passion, perfection and pure joy. She was cherished by so many people whom she made feel special and cared for deeply. Leslie appreciated the lighter side of life and laughter was always guaranteed.

Cycling, theatre arts, travelling, good food, dental hygiene edducation were among Leslie’s passions; she strived for the best in each of these pursuits. She received many career honors and medals that demonstrated her dedication and excellence.

Leslie was on a continual path to be the best person she could be whatever challenge might have been thrown in her way.  She faced these challenges head on with unparalleled strength, courage and humor.

Leslie’s story started on June 5, 1948 in New York City where she spent her childhood and attended the High School of Performing Arts; a highlight of her early years. She went on to Northwestern University to study theatre arts. After college, she pursued a corporate career that did not bring her much satisfaction so she became a dental hygienist; a career she loved.

Leslie knew every lyric to every Broadway show written. Her friends know this because as hard as we tried to test her skills, she always would burst into full lyrics of any remote song we threw out to her.

On the bike, Leslie was in paradise tackling the many hills of New England and enjoying several adventures with her many bike buddies. Through her cycling, she became a lifetime member of the Sound Cyclists Bicycle Club where she gave endless energy and support to fellow members and events. Ride leader, honored lifetime member, master organizer and queen of the food and rest stops (she could make 100 PB & jelly sandwiches in minutes) were just a few roles she played.

When it came time to retire, a new door was opened for her that took her back to her roots and her tremendous love for theatre arts. Leslie began acting again in several area productions and quickly became a valued contributor to the local theatre community.

Leslie is survived by her beloved husband and best friend, Gary Andrews. They enjoyed countless adventures around the globe together as well as hanging out at home with their well-loved cats. She will also be dearly missed by her stepson, Scott Andrews, Suling Andrews and granddaughter Amanda and devoted family and friends.

  • Gary, we are so sorry for your loss! We didn’t know Leslie well, but the few contacts we had with her told us what a wonderful person she was. You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.

  • Dear Gary,
    No words can bring comfort to a broken heart.
    However, when you think of my friend Leslie,
    you can only smile having the privilege of knowing her in our life.
    Knowing Leslie was living life on her terms gives a bit of reassurance
    that somehow acceptance of her passing is tolerable.
    I know you were the love of her life. The cats a close second.
    Sadly, we will say good by to a precious soul,
    Gladly, God will say `Halo` to his new arriving angel.
    So sorry for your loss!
    Always with a Healthy Smile,
    Linda Isis Primus, RDH

  • Leslie was remembered as far back as elementary school in Manhattan, PS 166. We used to play the flute together in the Junior High School band, and sharing many sleepover dates, young girls giggling late into the night, celebrating our youth. Although we met only once in adulthood, I can only imagine Leslie being the same joy she was a young girl. My sincerest condolences to the family.
