Leslie E. (Edmiston) Musselman

June 22, 1948 — August 17, 2020

Leslie Elizabeth (Edmiston) Musselman, 72, passed away Monday at her Altoona home. She was surrounded by loved ones. Leslie was born in Altoona, the daughter of Steward Sutton (“Pete”) and Geneva Edmiston. She is survived and celebrated by her husband, Thomas, of 52 years; sons, Shaun of Cleveland, Ohio and Tyler of Altoona; daughters, Devyn Little and husband, Jason, of Altoona, and Kelsey Nariani and husband, Vinay, of Oakland, Calif.; brother, Dixon (Rosemary) Edmiston, of Altoona; sister Sally (John) Brand of Columbus, Ind.; brother Scott Edmiston (Thom Miller) of Boston, Mass.; and brother-in-law Ronald Musselman (Jerilynn) of Sea Isle City, N.J. She was a beloved aunt to Ryan Brand, Jen Mann, Sarah Edmiston, NathanMusselman and Cassie Musselman. Without question, Leslie’s greatest pride and joy were her grandchildren: Ethan and Allison Little; Trent and Bryce Musselman and McKayla Noel; and Sutton and Geneva Nariani. She was preceded in death by a daughter-in-law, Jessica Noel Musselman. Leslie graduated from Altoona High School in 1966 and attended Millersville State College where she met and married her husband Thomas Musselman. After returning to Altoona, Tom accepted a teaching and coaching position in the Altoona School District, and Leslie raised their family of four. She eventually completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Penn State University, graduating in 1991. She worked at the Altoona Area Public Library, as a substitute teacher, and for Meals on Wheels before becoming a case manager for Blair Senior Services. From 1992-2006, she provided personal counseling, health care, financial advice, housing support, and companionship to senior citizens and their families all across Blair County. Leslie attended Broad Avenue/Providence Presbyterian Church for more than 65 years. She loved gardening, cooking, and playing Scrabble and Bridge. Her true calling, however, was being a loving wife, mother, sister, homemaker, and caregiver. Her home was always filled with family and neighbors, good food, laughter, and unconditional love. Her kindness and generosity touched the lives and hearts of all who knew her, and she will always be remembered with joy. A private memorial service will be held at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are by Mauk & Yates Funeral Home Inc. In lieu of flowers, her family requests that memorial donations be made to Beat Childhood Cancer or the Dana Farber Cancer Institute where Leslie received excellent medical care.
