Lesnefsky, Barbara J.
Barbara J. Lesnefsky, 61, of 448 Orchard Road, Mount Joy was welcomed home by God on Monday, January 7, 2008 at Lancaster General Hospital. She was married to Richard J. Lesnefsky for 42 wonderful years.
Barbara worked for the Engle Printing & Publishing Company, Mount Joy for 17 years, retiring from the Landisville office in August of 2006. She was a member of Mary, Mother of the Church Parish, Mount Joy and was a 1964 graduate of Lebanon Catholic High School. A caring and giving person, Barbara enjoyed helping others. She also enjoyed playing the piano, collecting sheet music and the Golden Book Series of children’s stories, playing cards, and gardening. Above all, Barbara’s favorite past time was her grandchildren, Mitchell, Emily, and Erin who put a gleam in her eye. Known as “Nana”, she loved to have fun and entertain them, always having a full schedule of activities planned when they came to visit or sleep over.
Born in Hershey, she was the daughter of Pauline Shearer Batdorf of Palmyra and the late Robert Batdorf.
In addition to her husband, Dick and mother Pauline, she will be lovingly remembered by her twin daughters, Janelle married to John Bitner, Elizabethtown and Lynn married to Bill Stoner, Huron, Ohio; her grandchildren, Mitchell and Emily Bitner, and Erin Stoner; and her sister, Nancy married to Dennis Barnhart, Hummelstown.
Dick and family wish to express a “special thanks” to Dr. Horenkamp, Dr. Eshleman, and their staff at the Lancaster General Hospital Cancer Center for keeping Barbara’s “quality of life” at its best.
