Our sweet daughter, sister, niece, cousin, and friend, Leslie Carol Allred, passed away suddenly from a ruptured appendix on Aug. 16, 2015. Leslie entered this world to loving parents, Pamela and Brad Allred, on Oct. 22, 1985.

Leslie’s passions in life were creating and appreciating art, her loving care for all animals, and her thoughtful ways by giving to others. She really enjoyed celebrating any occasion, especially her birthday, with loved ones. Leslie was very witty and could have you laughing with her child-like humor one minute and then stun you with her “Little Old Wise Woman” look on life the next. Leslie had true beauty both inside and out. Her beauty was really shown through her gorgeous green eyes and genuine smile.

Although her time here was brief, her larger than life presence and wonderful memories will remain warmly in our hearts forever. “Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, she grew wings and became a butterfly.”

She is survived by her sister, Jennifer Allred-Salvesen; parents, Pamela and Brad Allred; and many cousins from the Drury and Allred families. She was preceded in death by her uncle, Jeff Allred; grandparents, Thelma and Jack Allred; great-grandmother, Della Allred; and cousin, Michael Allred.

Leslie we will miss you and love you always.

The family will be holding a private service.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the Allred family in the passing of Delores. Such fond memories and close associations with all the family when they were our neighbors in Burley 11th ward. The neighborhood hasn’t been the same since. Really missed them when they moved to Preston. We know she is in a better place now and that we will all be able to see her and other family members again. What a comfort. Your parents are trully great examples to all of us as well as to all ther family and friends. May our Heavenly Father bless all of you in this hour of need.
    All our love, The Clegg family, Leon and Dori
