Branda Ericksen

Branda Ericksen, devoted wife, chef, and best friend departed this earthly realm on Friday, March 4, 2022. She had an extreme obsession with life and if we’re being honest, shoes, too. She lived life on her terms, always. Her heart was on her sleeve, and she was always trying to make sure you were okay. Her family was the most important piece of her art collection of life….

She was many things to many people - an awesome wife, cat-mom, daughter, sister, aunt, and social media influencer. She loved things so much that she created groups for them and added more people to her virtual family. She showed her artistic abilities with her make-up and fashionable tastes. She loved to entertain people and she was the most introverted extrovert we have ever met. Branda always gave 100% of herself to the people that mattered most to her. She lived out loud unapologetically and we adored her for that every single day.

Preceded in death by David Jenkins (Uncle Bro), Sarah Johnson (stepmom), Lisa Jenkins (beloved aunt), and numerous grandparents.

Survived by her devoted husband Justin Odin; parents Richard (Debbie) Johnson and Kathy (Harry) Levan; siblings Amanda (Mathew) Coughenour, Chipper (Pamela) Johnson, and Kandra (David) Kegley; stepsiblings, Brian Levan, Kristy (Sean) McConahay, and Jennifer Baker; and many nieces and nephews that she loved dearly.

The family will receive friends from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 9, 2022, at the Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home & Cremation Center in Bellefontaine.

A private memorial service will be held at the convenience of the family. Inurnment will be at the North Greenfield Cemetery in Perry Township Ohio at a later date.

Memorial contributions may be made to: Logan County Cancer Society c/o Mary Rutan Hospital Foundations  205 Palmer Ave.  Bellefontaine, Ohio 43311

The staff of the Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home & Cremation Center in Bellefontaine is honored to serve the Ericksen family.
