Mrs. Rowland is the mother of one of my very best friends. While I never got to meet her, I love her son. She did an amazing job raising and amazing person.

I will never forget Leslie's humor and enthusiasm. She truly loved life and every day was a new adventure. We taught together at Gilder and she was an incredible teacher. I know she is at peace now but why this had to happen to such an amazing woman is beyond me.

My deepest sympathy to Leslie's family. She will be truly missed. She was a wonderful lady and great teacher. I worked with her at Gilder and two of my children, Richard and Amanda had her as a 6th grade teacher. I can still picture her walking down the hall with her students and saying "Let's rock and roll."

So sorry for your loss! Leslie was an awesome lady/teacher! My son and daughter had both gone to Gilder and loved her. I am a co-worker also from Gilder...We had lots of laughs with her. It's been a few years since I saw her. But than she subbed at Chandler View school a few times and she'd always have to yell out at me to let me know she was there. Of course she'd have to ask about my daughter Tammy and son Eddie...She will be missed but will never be forgotten. She has touched a lot of...

As next door neighbors to Leslie's brother and sister-in-law Rick and Joanie Drew, we have followed the tragedy of Leslie's illness for the past year and some months. We have prayed for this beautiful lady of courage and grace, and now pray for comfort and consolation for all in the Rowland and Drew families.

I am sorry to hear of Leslie's passing. We taught together at Kellom. Leslie was a outstanding person. I always learned something new from her. I am glad that I had the opportunity to know and work with her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
