Lesley Anne Bidder

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Lesley Anne Bidder. Lesley passed away on Aug. 15th 2015 at Vancouver General Hospital

after a long struggle with type 1 diabetes and complications following heart surgery.

Lesley was born on April 28th 1970 in Lancashire, England and came to live in Canada as a young child with her parents and younger brothers.

Lesley will be sadly missed by her daughter Swade of Edmonton, her mum Susan of White Rock, her brothers Ian (Sherri) and Mark (Lonnie) of Quesnel, and her 4 nephews Greg, Logan, Colby and Dean all of Quesnel.

She will also be missed by many family and friends in BC and England.

Lesley loved frogs and collected figurines for many years. She had many different jobs over the years but one of her favourites was working at Starbucks,

she also worked at a dollar store for a while where she was thrilled to meet actor Martin Sheen on a couple of occasions, he even gave her his autograph.

But the job she loved the most was working at George Derby, a nursing home in Burnaby as a Resident Care Attendant. She made many friends there with whom she stayed in contact with.

There will be a Celebration of Life at the Quesnel Seniors Centre on September 12th at 2 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.

In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Canadian Diabetes Association in Lesley’s name.
