Lesley Piddington (1925 – 2016)

I’ve written a fair amount about the Piddingtons lately, and I’d like to pass along the word that Lesley passed away on the 2nd of August after a lengthy battle with dementia. Her BBC Radio broadcasts with Sydney remain inspirational and uplifting to everyone who hears them, and she has had a huge influence on me, as well as the Deans.

I’m sorry that I didn’t get to meet her, because the stories about her are legendary.
