Lessie was born August 15, 1950 in Angelina County, Texas to the late Bessie (Landrum) and Tandy Henderson. She died Sunday, November 4, 2012 in a Lufkin hospice facility.

Lessie taught school for 22 years, 14 of which were in the Temple Elementary Library.

Preceding Lessie in death was her husband, John Howard Boudreaux, in 1995.
