Barbara Ann Leis
Barbara Ann Leis Brentwood - Barbara Ann Leis, age 69, passed away peacefully from cancer on Monday, February 4, 2019, at Brighton Gardens of Brentwood, Tennessee. She was born to William and Velma (Ferguson) Leis, and grew up in Dumont, New Jersey.

She coordinated many special events in Jacksonville, including Special Olympics, River Run, and art shows.
