Leslie Jean Sminkey, 63-years-old, of Port St Lucie, FL, formerly of Westerly, R.I., passed into eternal rest on Monday, Oct. 10th, after a courageous battle with breast cancer. She leaves behind the loves of her life; her husband of 33 years - Jim Sminkey, her son Robert Sminkey and his fiancé Rachael, her son Kevin Sminkey, and her sister Martha Jane Carroll and several beloved nieces and nephews. Leslie, who was always referred to as Les, was predeceased by her first son, Jimmy JR, and her parents, Robert and Constance Mellow of White Rock, R.I. Les was a 1972 graduate of Westerly High School and spent her life as a homemaker and dutiful mother. Les was a woman easily characterized by her strength, determination, and devotion. She was a loving wife, devoted mom, dependable sister, adored aunt, and selfless friend. Known for her heart of gold and inherent ability to always "tell it like it is," she could share a laugh and tell a story like no other. In lieu of flowers a donation can be made in Leslie's honor to the American Cancer Society. Private services will be held for family and friends at a later date.
