Esther Lee Brady was born LeEsther Goree November 27, 1936 in Marion, Alabama to the union of Virgie Edwards and Johnny A. Goree.

LeEsther was the second of six girls born to this union. She was preceded in death by sisters Deloris Goree, Ann Poellinitz and Ruth Goree.

LeEsther attended Oakdale Elementary School where she was told there was no such name as LeEsther, which prompted her to unofficially change her name to Esther Lee. She attended Waite High School. While in high school she, along with her sister Beatrice did day work in people's homes. One of the homes she would point out on the way to church was located on East Broadway. She did childcare for Ruth Mae Jackson after which she worked for Head Start before leaving for her career employment with the United States Postal Service, retiring in 1998 with 31 years of duty.

Esther professed a belief in Christ at an early age. Esther was blessed with the gift of song and at the age of twelve she started in the Junior Choir graduating to the Number 2 Choir and then she became part of the Mass Choir. Her singing brought joy and solace to many and will always be remembered.

She leaves to mourn her passing a loving daughter, Rhonda Brady, a loving granddaughter, Rhonny Brady and was expecting the birth of a great grandchild, sisters, Beatrice Sawyer and Mary Barringer, lifelong friend, Marguerite Wallace, special friend and cousin, Lillian Kynard, special cousins who where thought of as brothers, Willie "Sonny" Edwards and John "Brother" Edwards, a host of nieces, nephews and lots of cousins.

Special Thanks to Hospice of N.W. Ohio, Pastor Venson Simpson, Pastor Dock Kelly, who were ever present, and to Rev. Michael Horton for his support and help with transport.
