Mira celebration

I am sorry for the sad news. We are trying to reach all that knew Mira and some email addresses are not good anymore.


Mira Leslie, of Seattle, Washington, died on March 10, 2017 after a brief illness. Born December 8, 1955, she was 61 years old.

Mira was a world traveler, having lived all over the United States, Canada, London, Mexico and India. She was a Public Health Veterinarian, graduating from the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. In addition to serving as the Public Health Veterinarian in Arizona and Washington, and working for the Province of British Columbia, Canada, Mira was chairperson of the Rabies Compendium and a long time member of the National Association of Public Health Veterinarians.

Mira was a life-long advocate for social justice and active in the peace movement, Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action and the Freedom Project-Seattle prison programs, as well as numerous other organizations. She was inspired to fight social injustice and work for world peace by her late father, Dr. Charles Leslie. Mira will be missed by her mother Zelda, brothers Mario and Sam, Sister-in-Law Linda, nephews Max, Liam, and Tanner, her niece Grace, and family members in Italy. She will also be missed by many loving friends and colleagues.

Contributions in Mira’s honor may be made to organizations she supported, including the ACLU, NAACP, Doctors Without Borders, Physicians for Social Responsibility and the Center for Biological Diversity. A Celebration of Life is scheduled for Saturday, May 6 from 1-4 pm at the Hillman City Colloboratory, 5623 Rainier Ave. S, Seattle, WA 98118. She touched many people and leaves behind a legacy to be admired. She made a difference.
