On Friday evening, August 28, 2020, Leslie Kay Keiser, age 16, died in a tragic accident. Her life was cut too short. She had a saying in her room that said “Don’t be so sad. It’s such a waste of time.” Leslie was born on December 5, 2003 in Wolf Point, Montana to Ronald Glenn Keiser Jr., and Natalie Dawn Hempel Keiser. Leslie attended school in Wolf Point, Montana. She dropped out during the 8th grade. She was planning to get her GED, but life had different plans.
“Whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time.”
She made many friends throughout the years. She touched so many lives. She was a very quiet person. It was difficult for her to open up to people. She had a talent for fixing her hair and makeup. She loved clothes. She would try them on right away. She had dreams of becoming a photographer. She was a very hard worker. At the time of her death, she had 2 jobs. She worked at the theater and she worked at the Sherman as a housekeeper.
You are not promised tomorrow, don’t assume you have more time to get right with God. Live each day as if it could be your last.
Leslie was preceded in death by her grandfather Ronald Keiser Sr., her great-grandfather Clarence Krahn, and her great-grandmother Ella Hoch Krahn.
