It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Leslie Gayle Gratton, age 66, of Dorchester.  Leslie passed away on Monday, July 17, 2023 at the Dr. Georges L Dumont Hospital after a battle with cancer.

Born in Saskatoon, SK, she was a daughter of the late Grady and Isabelle (Brizinski) Gratton.

Leslie was an avid volunteer through the Dorchester Lions Club, and Urban/Rural Rides. Her services to the community are well noted as she generously donated time and expertise in cooking.

Leslie was always found in a discussion with either strangers or friends. She had an eclectic collection of trivia and facts that could stimulate any conversation. She was also well known for her participation in the annual polar dip.

She will be dearly missed by her husband Dan Matthews, Dorchester; sisters Shelly Roch, Kelowna, BC, and Wendy (Brian) Darrow, Saskatoon, SK; her step-children, Steven Matthews, Germany, and Margaret Pavaroni, Calgary, AB, as well as several friends and community members.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge Street, Sackville, NB (506-364-1300).  Cremation has taken place.  A Celebration of Life will be held at her home on August 19, 2023 starting at 2 pm.

If so desired, donations in Leslie's memory may be made to any animal charity of your choice.

Sharing of memories and condolences may be sent to the family by visiting Leslie's online memorial at www.jonesfuneralhome.ca or through the Jones Funeral Home Facebook page.
