Obituary Condolences

De MARCO, LESANDRA Lesandra De Marco, age 65, passed away May 24, 2012. She left us much too soon, survived by Jimmy Dittman, her daughter Nicole Ann, her 21-month old grandson Gavan, and other family. Lesandra left New York, but New York never left Lesandra. Her telling accent and boisterous laugh which complimented her ageless beauty were proud attributes of her home state, her beloved Yankees, and all that she learned and experienced back in the Big Apple. Whatever the event, Lesandra had an 'I can top that one' story to share, and she did. She lived a full life, in part symbolized by her long and loyal dedication to Tosdal, Smith, where she worked for 16 ½ years, supporting every day its mission to protect employee rights and benefits, particularly those injured at work. Serving our clients is not easy, but Lesandra rolled through it all, helping out when and wherever she was needed, working through various bosses, computers, software, phone, dictation, and message systems, and office moves. We admired Lesandra. She approached her job with a can-do attitude and stayed cheerful, seemingly always able to inject humor into any circumstance. She approached life the same way she approached work. She was selfless and always fought for the underdog, even at her own expense. We like few Yankee fans, but will always have a soft spot in our hearts for her. Rest in peace LDM. You are missed by all here at the firm.
