1982 Leslie 2020

Leslie Moss-Taylor

March 30, 1982 — October 14, 2020

Leslie Moss-Taylor, 38, of Davenport, Iowa, passed away October 11, 2020, with her family by her side at Genesis East Medical Center in Davenport, Iowa.

A Memorial Mass will be held at a later date. Due to Covid restrictions, masks and social distancing will be required. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.

Leslie was born on March 30, 1982. She graduated from Central High School and St. Ambrose University with a degree in psychology and a Masters of Social Work. Her greatest joy in life came from spending time with her son, Noah, especially drawing and listening to music with him. Leslie was an incredibly gifted writer, and as a student was published in the Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans.  She also had a passion for music; Pearl Jam and Smashing Pumpkins permeated the house as she was growing up. In addition, she loved observing the grace of butterflies which befitted her kind and gentle nature. Later in life, Leslie found pleasure in supporting the Democratic party and advocating for women’s rights. She was looking forward to voting for her candidate of choice, Joe Biden, in the November election. Leslie will always be remembered as a caring and giving person. She gave in death as she gave in life; honoring her wishes Leslie was an organ and tissue donor.

Leslie is survived by her son, Noah, age 11, mother, Marilyn Moss-Taylor, sister, Lindsay Moss-Taylor, Minneapolis MN, sister, Ann Moss-Taylor, Davenport IA, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Lester and Ann Moss, Aunt Linda Moss, and beloved pets, Cassie, Sammy Jo, Ouija, and Missy.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the family for a fund to be established for her son, Noah. Online condolences may be left for the family on the Tribute Wall.
