AUSTIN, TEXAS — Leslie J. (Woodward) Seibel was full of life, 64 year-old, who was a beautiful person, loving wife, sister, mother and grandmother and who should not need an obituary at this early time.

Sadly, Leslie Seibel of Austin, Texas passed away after a brave and courageous battle with cancer on March 15, 2017 surrounded by her husband, sons, daughters-in-law and grandchildren. She was born April 22, 1952 in Columbus, Ohio.

She was preceded in death by her father, Harold Boyd Woodward and Mother, Jane Claire (McFeely) Woodward.

Leslie is survived by her husband of nearly 43 years, Ronald E. Seibel of Austin. In addition, she is survived by her sons Philip M. Seibel (Charity), Geoffrey S. Seibel (Kristin) and four granddaughters, Allison, Brooklyn, Madeline and Shelby. She is also survived by her sisters Beth Hanley, Ellen Meranda and Laurel Woodward Straker (Norm).

Leslie and Ron had a blessed life together and were truly in love from the moment they met in Washington, D.C. Leslie was an insurance benefits adviser for over 20 years and worked with her husband in a family owned insurance agency, but she was most admired for her infectious smile, spunky attitude, care for others and love for her husband and family. Leslie was also a gifted organizer, cook, decorator, shopper and conversationalist. She always thought of others before herself and never liked attention. Her wedding anniversary was more important to her than birthdays and her four granddaughters meant the world to her. She enjoyed camping, hiking, beaches, the outdoors and being with friends and family. She was a graduate of Norwalk High School (Norwalk, Ohio) and received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Phoenix. She was a member of the Austin Association of Underwriters and a lifetime member of the Girl Scouts of America.

A celebration of Leslie’s blessed life will be held on Monday, March 20 at Harrell Funeral Home, 4435 Frontier Trail, Austin, Texas with visitation at 1:00 PM followed by a service at 2:00 PM and burial at Phillips Cemetery in Dripping Springs, Texas.
