PERRY COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - A well-known Perry County woman, Leslie Hall, died in a car crash on Thursday in the Jeff community.

Leslie Hall's husband is the Hazard city manager Derrick Hall.

Leslie Hall died after she was driving and the brakes on the car malfunctioned.

Friday, people in the community are remembering a woman who they say was a great mom and a person with a big personality.

Wanda Brown, Hall's cousin, says she was always full of life.

"You can't find someone that is more full of life," said Hall. "She wanted to make sure her kids got to experience everything they could in life and maybe that is why she done so much so soon."

Brown says Leslie would want people to smile and enjoy life like she did.

"She lived a great life while she was here and she wouldn't want us to get marred down in all of this," said Brown. "When I opened my garage door it was really grey. It was an ugly day and I thought, does the universe know she's gone? Then the sun came out and it was like her saying, 'I'm right here.'"

Leslie Hall's visitation will be Monday September 23rd from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m at Maggard’s Mountain View Chapel. Her funeral will be at 12 p.m. on Tuesday September 24th at Maggard’s Mountain View Chapel.

In lieu of flowers, her family is asking instead for donations to her children's college fund. Donations can be made at Community Trust Bank.
