Eleonora Leisti Obituary

Eleonora Grace Leisti (nee. Comparato) of St. Peters, MO passed away peacefully on Wednesday March 13, 2024 at the age of 67 surrounded by the love of her son, daughter, husband, brother and their respective spouses. Eleonora is survived by her husband; Frank Leisti, her two children; Brian (Dyan) Riley, & Stefanie (Nicholas) Stonebarger, four step-children; Vainamoinen Leisti, Niles (Maia) Leisti, Robyne (Kevin Wilcox) Leisti, and Aidan Leisti, seven grandchildren and one more coming this July; Deny-Tyler Riley, Chase Riley, Bailey Riley, and Liliana Riley, Oliver Stonebarger, Tyrion Hollander, and Torven Leisti, two brothers; Joseph (Suzanne) Comparato, Charles (Susan) Comparato, sister-in-law; Phyllis Comparato, along with many nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family.

She was preceded in death by her parents; Andrew and Lena Comparato and her brother; Lawrence Comparato.

        Eleonora “Leo” was born in Jennings, MO and grew up in St. Charles, MO. She was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother. She naturally excelled at any job that she took on starting at the age of 14 at The Boschert Town tavern helping out in any way they would allow her to. She graduated from St. Charles High School in 1975. She worked at the infamous Noah’s Arc restaurant in St. Charles, and then Mr. Steak. She was a meat cutter and prep chef at Mr. Steak for 30 years before going back to school when she realized her passion and earned her Associates Degree in Medical Assisting in September of 2006. On March 5, 2007 she began her new career as a pediatric medical assistant where she took care of the children of our community for 15 years until she retired on March 7, 2022. The patients and their parents alike absolutely loved “nurse” Leo.  

        Eleonora had a fabulous sense of humor, you could always count on Leo to make you laugh. She loved spending time with family, shopping was her guilty pleasure, and she loved to travel. She frequently went on cruises and has been to many different countries around the world. She was a very fun-loving, kind, sweet, generous person and will be dearly missed by all. 

A Celebration of Life will be held on March 23, 2024 from 2-6 P.M. at the Ptiman Reception Center in Wentzville, MO; her family and friends alike are welcome.
