Lesley G. Bonfiglio, born Lesley Megquier in March of 1969 in Boston, was in an accident and passed away due to her injuries on September 27, 2023, at the age of 54 in Hyannis, MA. Lesley was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, and sister. Whose infectious personality would light up any room she walked into. She had a vibrant and magnetic presence that drew people to her.

Lesley had a deep love for her family, especially her children and grandchildren, who held a special place in her heart. She was a devoted mother to her sons Anthony (36) of Falmouth, Dominic (31, deceased in 2021) of Denver, Mathew (30) of Rockland, as well as her daughter Sophia (26) of Manchester, NH, and Paul "Pauley" (24) of Hyannis MA. Lesley cherished her role as a grandmother to Gianna (18), Aria (12), Amiyah (11), Marlo (5), Addison (2), and Lola (1 1/2 years).

In her younger years, Lesley showcased her talent as a ballet dancer and was part of the Boston Ballet Company; she was the first African-American child dancer to hold a prominent role in the Boston Ballet Company. She had a passion for art, painting, music, dancing, and organizing family functions. Lesley's creativity and love for the arts were evident in everything she did.

Lesley's career was diverse, reflecting her many interests and skills. She was a homemaker, a skilled hair stylist, a passionate CNA, a phlebotomist, and even held a managerial position at BJ's Wholesale Club. Her dedication and hard work were admired by all who knew her.

Lesley's educational journey included attending Hingham Elementary School and Rockland High School. She further pursued her passion for hairdressing at Blaine Hair School. She expanded her skills in health care at UpperCape Regional Tech, where she became a certified phlebotomist at Cape Cod Community College and became a CNA nurse's assistant. Lesley found solace and strength in her faith and was a member of Holy Family Church in Rockland, MA, and St Francis Xavier Church in Hyannis. Her spirituality provided her with comfort and guidance throughout her life.

Outside of her professional and family life, Lesley enjoyed various hobbies, including dancing, art, reading, music, concerts, cooking, volunteering, spending time at the beach/boating, motorcycle rides, and traveling. She found joy in simple pleasures like long rides and walks, appreciating the beauty of the world around her.

    Dear Paul Such a shock to hear of Lesley's passing. I pray for your strength at this more than difficult time. May she rest in peace

    It was love at first sight. We laughed the moment we met. Folded lays potato chips taste better than regular ones and Delicious was our favorite word. She even found perfume called Delicious and had to buy it😂 We lost our love for a few years yet our mutual love of our grand girls kept us kind. Just a week before she was called home , she pulled me close and said she loved me. And we hugged. It was a beautiful gift of pure apology and I waited soo long for that. I thank you Les, for a most gracious gift of love. And it came just in time for healing. I promise the girls will know that super funny side of you and I'll share folded chips in your honor. Rest in painless peace and laugh with my sister💕💕 😇 Til we meet again, ❤️Maria
