Englewood

Lesli Brahm of Englewood, Ohio passed away peacefully on June 10, 2024, at the age of 69. Born on February 6, 1955, in Covington, Kentucky, Lesli was the beloved daughter of Robert and Marjorie Dierig. She graduated from Our Lady of Providence High School in Newport, Kentucky in 1973 and later pursued a career in the medical field, earning her nursing degree from Dayton School of Practical Nursing in 1985.

 

Lesli dedicated over three decades of her life as a caring Licensed Practical Nurse. Her compassionate care extended to her roles at Stillwater Center, ResCare, and as a nursing supervisor at McEwen group home for adults with intellectual disabilities. She treated her patients with kindness, making them feel like part of her own family and including them in special events and gatherings.

 

In her personal life, Lesli was a devoted mother to Ashley and Aaron and later cherished the role of grandmother to Ryan, Nicholas, and Liam. She was known for spoiling her grandchildren with treats and outings to places like Martindale Park. Her interests included gardening, collecting Longaberger baskets, antiquing, and exploring yard sales.

 

Lesli is survived by her Daughter Ashley Waldon, son Aaron Johnson, Grandchildren Ryan, Nicholas, and Liam, Sisters Cheri (Roger) Rawe, Vicki (Marty) Dierig, Robin (Robert) Centner, Brother David (Pete) Dierig, and numerous nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by her parents Robert and Marjorie Dierig, and grandmother Adaline Adams.
