Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Leslie Ellen Chittenden transitioned peacefully on July 18, 2023, after her long battle with Parkinson’s Disease.
Leslie was born on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 1950, in Spokane, Washington, to Betty Jim (Wyne) and William Montague Wulff. She was the middle of 3 children, including Bobby Wulff (oldest) and Debra Wulff (youngest).
In June of 1967, she married her high school sweetheart Roger Russell Horine from Highline High School, and gave birth to her only daughter Lisa Marie in November that same year.
In 1970, Leslie moved with her daughter from Burien, Washington, to Bend, Oregon, to boldly begin a new life. There, she worked as a Court Reporter and later moved to the real estate escrow field. She quickly advanced to the position of Escrow Officer and worked at the top of her field for the next 30+ years until retirement.
Leslie was introduced to her third husband, Warren Randall (Randy), by her dear friend Fronec Bryant. Leslie and Randy were married in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where they purchased a timeshare condo and enjoyed yearly vacations there hosting friends and family.
Shortly after her Parkinson’s diagnosis in 2014, Leslie traveled to Europe with her daughter Lisa to explore Paris, Loire Valley, and Normandy. It was one of the great adventures of her lifetime, and her first time traveling abroad.
Leslie loved travel, cooking, spending time with her grandchildren, poetry, trees, crows, painting, drinking a great martini, scratching lottery tickets, playing Scrabble, and dabbling in esoteric subjects for personal use and entertaining friends. Always expressing a positive outlook on life, her smile and laughter would light up a room. She was a thoughtful friend with a playful, mischievous spirit.
Leslie was predeceased by her brother, her parents, and her husband. She is survived by her daughter Lisa, sister Debbie, and grandson Evan. She also leaves behind many beloved nieces, nephews, and friends.
Leslie’s family would like to express their deep gratitude for the loving and gentle care provided by Later Years Adult Family Home in Silverdale for the weeks leading up to and following her passing. The family would also like to thank the talented hospice care nurses, Elemental Cremation & Burial staff, Stone Circles Collective, clergy, and home caregivers for their support during this challenging time.
