Adah and Noah Lesslie
April 7, 2021
Rock Hill, South Carolina - Miss Adah Elizabeth Lesslie, 9, and Master Noah Ryan Lesslie, 5, passed away on Wednesday, April 7, 2021.
A memorial service will be held at 3pm on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at West End Baptist Church with Dr. J. Barry Dagenhart and Rev. John Oliphant officiating.
Adah was a precocious, riddle-loving, and self-proclaimed book nerd (a title she shared with her Momma). Noah confirmed that Adah was the best big sister. She enjoyed parenting everyone (adults and children alike, and whether they liked it or not). She was in the process of conquering Spanish. Giving was one of her largest spiritual gifts, and Adah often passed that joy by creating and delivering handmade cards and presents. She loved her family and her friends fiercely. Music was Adah's love language. She was a beautiful soprano who knew every word to every song played on K-Love. Adah was a gentle hugger and prolific snuggler, especially with her Daddo. Adah stumped those she knew with her theological questions. We are sure she is thrilled by finally getting them all answered in Heaven.
At five years old, Noah already mastered the art of physical comedy. He would offer an unsolicited running hug at any given moment -- and from any direction. He would have crawled into his Momma's skin while hugging her so tightly if that were an option. Noah instantly brightened any room he entered, and he had a knack for knowing when those around him needed to laugh (a skill he learned from his Daddo). Noah's most repeated question in life was whether he would get to ride horses in heaven (specifically Artex from The Neverending Story), and he frequently expressed concern over whether he would miss Jesus' call because he was "not the best at listening." From his grandfathers, Noah inherited the ability to -- sometimes shockingly -- turn a phrase with suspicious maturity. He did everything with wild abandon, including loving his family and all of his friends.
Adah and Noah would jump at the chance to have special time with Poopah, Yaya, Nana, Papa, as well as numerous other family members. Their friends meant the world to them. Undoubtedly, Adah and Noah knew and loved Jesus. They spoke openly about who Jesus is to them. Their understanding of, and love for, the gospel was evident even at their young ages. We take great comfort in knowing Adah and Noah are in heaven (covered in glitter because they are with their Nana and mouths full of gum from their Papa). Their Momma and Daddo are patiently waiting to join them.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Adah and Noah's name to Camp Joy North Carolina, 918 South Pleasantburg Dr, Greenville, SC 29607.
Greene Funeral Home Northwest Chapel is assisting the Lesslie family and condolences may be made at www.greenefuneralhome.net.

To The Lesslie Family & Friends:

Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers go out to you each and every day as you press your way through this difficult devastation. As you embrace the love and support from family, community, and friends please know that you are never alone. Jeff, you touched the lives of so many people through your acts of kindness and devotion and it thrilled me and touched me to see that those godly attributes of yours and your wife’s could be easily seen in your BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN! It filled my heart to read what you and others have shared about them that I can literally see The BEAUTY and The LOVE Of JESUS on their Cute Little Faces from the pictures that have been posted. God Has SMILED On THEM (through their lives) And He Has Set THEM FREE!

You coached my son in basketball and he talked about you often and was really shakened by this tragedy ( he was fortunate to have known your lovely parents too). We are hurting with you and we are going to pull through this with you together as your faithful Community. Be uplifted and encouraged knowing that your Dear Loved Ones have entered into God’s Sweet Rest and are now in His Sweet Celestial Care! Be strong in The Lord and in The Piwer of His Might and EVERYTHING is going to One Day be ALL RIGHT in THE SWEET BY AND BY!❤❤❤❤

With much Love and God’s Much More In Abundance,

I only knew Adah through the eyes of brief moments seeing her slong dide her grandparents her mom and dad. I am a friend of the family that helped katies grandmother beth snd grandfather clarence in Louisiana. I saw her as s baby snd small toddler through the eyes of mr Clarence. She was a true blessing in his latter years of life. To put it mildly she was the most precious child in his loving eyes ♥ He was forever telling me that as well as his favorite pet name gor his hirl. “His Angel”. Im so ver sorry for this tremendous loss in your earthly families. Please know my heart prayers and love are with you each.

I had the honor of meeting Adah and Noah while working with Dr. Lesslie and Jeff. They were so sweet and well mannered. I shared a picture from my phone of Noah “playing” his bagpipe for the residents at Westminster. Dr. Lesslie played and Noah stood proudly with his bagpipe too. Adah was smiling and walking in the parade...a beautiful memory. I am praying for the Lesslie family during this time. God bless you all.
