Lesley Pfeiffer will be remembered for her kindness

By Staff | Nov 7, 2019

Lesley Pfeiffer passed away peacefully at her home in Lahaina on Oct. 5, 2019.

Those who knew her well – housekeepers, gardeners, medical service providers and most especially her family – all saw the kindness and aloha that permeated the spirit of Lesley Pfeiffer to the very end.

She passed away last month at the age of 86, but she will be remembered as a loving soul who brought comfort and peace to all who were privileged enough to know her well.

Lesley and her high school sweetheart, John Nunn, married and raised their five children primarily in California. She then moved to Maui with her second husband, Robert Pfeiffer, in 1978 with their daughter, Cindy Nunn.

Lesley had a passion for sewing, and in later years discovered quilting. A lifelong animal lover, she had an unwavering devotion to her dogs – especially her surviving puppies Dazy and Kalani.

Lesley “Luvlot” Pfeiffer is survived by her children, Scott (Mary) Nunn, Robin (Frank) Cote, Michael Nunn, Christopher (Sandy) Nunn and Cynthia (Edward) Townsend; grandchildren Danyell and Reggie Cote, Mathew (Heather) Nunn, Stephanie Nunn, Casey (Brad) Hahn, Eric (Alexa) Nunn and Nicholas Townsend; great grandchildren Olivia and Conor Nunn; stepdaughters Constance Adams and Carolyn (Richard) Booth; and dedicated friend Eileen Videtti.

Lesley joins her beloved parents, Leslie (Martha) Huettmann and Fae (BeBe) Bommerscheim; husband Robert Pfeiffer; sister Christine Day; brother Robert Huettnabb; and her dear friend, Kalisi Faitua.

A private service was held at Canoe Beach to celebrate Lesley Pfeiffer’s life. A very special mahalo to Napili Canoe Club, David and “Nana” Latu, Ana Longo Sekona, Benny Uyetake and Therese Fitzgerald of Hospice Maui for their participation and help.

Donations can be made in her memory to Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii. May the Peace of the Lord be with you always. (By Walter Chihara)
