Leslie K. Abbott

October 06, 1938 ~ May 24, 2020

Leslie Abbott, 81 years old, passed away on May 24th.  She was born in Winnetka, Illinois, graduated from New Trier High School and Skidmore College.


Upon Marrying her loving and exceptionally caring husband, Robert (Bob) Abbott jr, of 60 years, Leslie became an East coast transplant living in Weston, Ma early on and later the Cape and Vero Florida. They raised three wonderful children; Anne Randle, Elizabeth Kolman and Robert Abbott III and boast eight grandchildren.


Leslie was a pioneer in her day, starting her own consulting business.  She was known for her love of life, her party giving and her sense of humor. Leslie developed many special relationships over the years as were evidenced at her 80th birthday party in Chatham when people came from far and wide to celebrate with her.


Leslie loved competition and winning.  She never met a game or sport that she didn’t excel at.  She was an avid bridge player, golfer, tennis player, skier.


She loved to sing and shared this passion with her husband.  Together, they belonged to and performed with several groups.


Leslie lived life to its fullest with no apologies. She was so thankful in the end to be lucid and able to connect and say goodbye to her family and friends.

As one of her friends wrote to her in her last days; “Leslie, you are unique, formidable and funny, crusty and caring…tough and tender.  You are clearly one of a kind.”  And that she was!


Leslie will be sorely missed by her family and many friends.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
