Nan Leighton August 21, 1933 - August 28, 2018 OCEANSIDE Nan Leighton, loving mother and grandmother, died peacefully surrounded by family.

Nan began a 25-year career at Carlsbad High as an administration assistant in 1967. The 74 CHS yearbook honored her service. Nan and Cliff traveled throughout the U.S. and Europe and donated years of service to the Interfaith Community Services and St. Michael's Episcopal Church which they belonged to for 65 years. Predeceased by Cliff eight months ago, she lived her life with undying optimism. Nan is survived by son Ken, daughter Catherine (Livingood) and grandsons William and Troy. Services are 1 PM, Friday, Sept. 28 at St Michael's. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to Hospice of the North Coast.
