Obituary for Leslie Genevieve Lancaster

Leslie Genevieve Davis Lancaster, age 100, of Mena passed from this earth on Wednesday, July 18, 2018. She was born on February 9, 1918, in Lake Charles, LA, to Genevieve Jonte Davis and Leslie Lee Davis. She was married to James Lee Lancaster on May 19, 1940.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, a sister, Eloise Pickel, and a daughter, Ann Lancaster Lee.

She is survived by her son, Robert Lee Lancaster and wife, Susan, of Mena; son-in-law, Charles Lee; granddaughters, Genevieve Eckstein and Jacqueline Lee; and great-grandsons, Sidney and Ansel Eckstein, all of Dallas.

Leslie lived all over the country growing up, as her father was a caretaker for the National Cemeteries in Nashville Tennessee, Saint Augustine, Florida, Pineville, Louisiana. She, Jimmy, Bob, and Ann lived in Denver before moving to the Yocana community in 1959, where they had a farm. When she moved into town, she was very active in Church work, senior classes at the community college, and volunteer work in the hospital gift shop and at the Rich Mountain Visitor Center.

She was an active member of Christ Episcopal Church for many years and later attended Church of the Good Shepard and First United Methodist Church of Mena.

She was a much respected and loved member of the community and will be missed greatly. She was instrumental in establishing the Oaks Assisted Living Facility in Mena and had been a resident there for almost 7 years.
