Leslie Jane Reeves, 45


Leslie Jane Reeves, 45, of Troy, died Nov. 25, 2021.

A private service is planned by Barry Wilson Funeral Home in Maryville.

Ms. Reeves was born June 26, 1976, in Town and Country, MO. She was a graduate of Collinsville High School, and received a bachelor degree from the University of Missouri Rolla, and a master’s degree from the Univeristy of Kansas. She worked as a petroleum engineer and then started her own business, All You Studio & Party Place. She loved dancing, exercising, art, collecting shoes, travel, cats and listening to 80s music.

Ms. Reeves is survived by her children, Lawson and Larkin; her parents, Lynette (Petish-Sphar) Grothe of Collinsville, and Richard (wife Gail) Sphar of Franklin, TN; sister Heather; brother-in-law Curt; niece Hope; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Memorials may be made to an education fund for her children at St. John Neumann Catholic School in Maryville. Another way to honor her would be to help out someone with a random act of kindness.
