Leslie Hope McLaurin

Leslie Hope McLaurin, 76, of Gallatin, Tenn., passed away Nov. 8, 2017 at her home. Mrs. McLaurin was born on March 23, 1941 in Laurel to the late Leslie Osborne Saucier and Lula Mae Yarbrough Saucier.

She loved her Heavenly Father, her husband and her family passionately. She was a behind-the-scenes, quiet, yet faithful servant who gave sacrificially and wholeheartedly.  Her love for children led her to work at Clinton (Tenn.) Elementary School for 35 years and to serve in the children’s ministry at her church. She found great joy in praising God through her beautiful voice in church choir.

She is survived by her husband of 56 years Tom McLaurin; children Karen Boone (Darryl), Kimberly McLaurin and Scott McLaurin (Amy); grandchildren Derek Boone (Kelly), Kelsey Socaciu (Flav), Katlyn McLaurin (Jennifer), Kendall Boone, Ansley McLaurin and Britton McLaurin; brothers Tom Saucier (Ann) and Mike Saucier (Patti); sister Suzanne Saucier; several nieces and nephews.
