Lessie Farmer Bohnenstiehl

Lessie Farmer Bohnenstiehl, age 64 of Kiln, Mississippi, passed away on Saturday, December 9, 2023, surrounded by her loved ones after a long battle with cancer. She put up one heck of a fight!

She was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on October 21, 1959 to Alberta Bradshaw and the late Neville Bradshaw.

Lessie is survived by her loving husband, Thomas Bohnenstiehl; her loving sons, Blake Bayard and Zachary (Elizabeth) Nelson; her stepsons, Jordan and Scott Bohnenstiehl; her brothers, James (Ann) Farmer, Jr., and Garret Farmer; her stepbrothers, Ronald (Guillermo), Mike (Maj), and Scott (Shawn) Bradshaw. her sister-in-law, Marilyn (Steve); her brothers-in-law, Gerald (Carol), and the late Kenneth Bohnenstiehl; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends who will miss her dearly.

Lessie graduated from Grace King High School in Metairie, Louisiana, and went on to pursue a career as an esthetician from 1991 to 2016. She loved spending time with her husband, family, kids, and her dogs any chance she could get. She also enjoyed traveling, working in her garden, decorating for the holidays, and trips to the casinos. She made an impact on anyone she encountered and was always so positive even when life threw her a curveball.
