Date of Death: Wednesday, June 2, 2021
Lesley Sara Kittler (maiden name Blum) passed away in the comfort of her home on June 2nd, 2021 at 1:43 PM surrounded by her immediate family. Born on July 8th, 1979 in Englewood, NJ, Lesley was 41 years old when she left this earth. Lesley put up a fierce, six-year battle against her synovial cell sarcoma and all the sequelae that came with it. Regardless, she never once let the disease tarnish her attitude and spirit. Unfortunately, Lesley’s body had other plans for her and God welcomed her into Heaven this week. She was a current resident of Fair Lawn, NJ, though Lesley grew up in Saddle Brook, NJ where she graduated from Saddle Brook High School in 1997. Lesley was a graduate of Monmouth University where she received her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. While at Monmouth, Lesley became one of the Founding Sisters of the Kappa Nu chapter of the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority in the fall of 1998. She was honored by the Susan G. Komen Foundation, ZTA’s philanthropy, at Yankee Stadiumfor her volunteer efforts and was the chapter advisor for the ZTA sisters of Farleigh Dickinson University. Lesley was also an active member of her nephew’s PTA where she held leadership roles and even starred in a production of Mamma Mia!. She was married to her husband, Bob, on August 12th, 2018 in Las Vegas, NV. She was also a successful employee at Mary Kay. Lesley was sensational, motivated, and thoughtful. We will never forget the memories we shared with her nor the impact she left on all the souls she encountered. In her own words, Lesley would tell all those that knew her that there was never a dull moment in her life, for better or for worse, though we can all agree that life will be duller without her presence on this earth.
Lesley is survived by her husband, Bob Kittler, her dog, Shaggy, her parents, Ellen and Steven Blum, her sister, Alyssa Blum, her mother-in-law, Mary Kittler, her sister-in-law, Carolyn Kittler, her paternal
