Brandy Kuhlman

January 11, 1977 — January 15, 2023

Throughout her life, Brandy was a champion for anyone and everyone who was marginalized in our society. If you were vulnerable in any way, Brandy could sense it and she was immediately your ally, your advocate, and your protector. If you needed something and she had it, she would share with you, even to her own detriment. She would regularly give money to the homeless, even during her most financially challenging times. "God bless," was always her message to those in need.

Her struggles in life were real and at times, extremely difficult. She loved being around her people, but hated to be in crowds. Watching her around people she loved and who loved her, it is almost impossible to imagine the anxiety that raged insider her at times. She understood physiology and pharmacology, yet sometimes failed to use that knowledge to care for herself, knowing all too well that some of her behaviors were self-destructive. Her medical needs were many, yet she often avoided treatment. Steadfast in her beliefs about the way things should be, she was often indecisive about seemingly simple things, but never shy about expressing her opinion to those she trusted on things of matter.

As a small child, Brandy fell in love with literature. She not only enjoyed reading anything in print, but was a very proud collector of series of books until her library became too much for any of us. In true Brandy fashion, she willingly and lovingly donated her childhood library to others so others could share her passion for the written word. Throughout her life, it was commonplace for her to have a book in her hands, riveted by the story as told by the author.

Brandy loved the ocean and was planning an ocean vacation with her new hip. She endured the horrible pain from her deteriorating hip for almost four years and was so happy to have finally gotten it replaced. As she made the physical progress toward independent mobility, she was hopeful to again be on the beach and feel the warm sand and cool water. Those closest to her were celebrating her new hip along with her and were hopeful for her to have the freedom of movement she had once known.

Brandy loved her two children, Tyler and Raygen, and was very proud of the young adults they have become and expressed that often to anyone who would listen.

Brandy is survived by her children, Tyler Kuhlman and Raygen Leazier, her parents, Tony (Angela) Dunn and Pam Dunn, her sister, Lisa Stortz-Murray, her brother, Nicolas Dunn, two step-siblings, Kate Yockey and Anna Yockey, many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, a great-nephew, and a whole community who loved her and will miss her forever.
