In Memoriam: Leslie Thompson

December 1, 2015

The Madeira community mourns the loss of a dear colleague. Leslie Thompson, long-time director of communications for Camp Greenway and manager of the school store, passed away November 21, 2015 due to complications of a chronic heart condition. For many summers, Leslie served as the gateway to Greenway: checking campers in as they arrived late, keeping the many different days of camp in order, and always making sure that each camper was safely home at the end of the day. To our campers and their families, she was an ever-present figure – always helpful and always smiling. She brought the same caring qualities to managing the bookstore this fall. 

Leslie is survived by her loving husband of 20 years, her two children, father, sister and brother. A memorial to celebrate the life of Leslie will be on Saturday, December 5 at 12 noon at St. Ann's Catholic Church, 4001 Yuma St., N.W. Reception to follow.

Leslie’s obituary, below, was published in the Sunday, November 29, Washington Post.
