Leslie Rae Wermers
7/7/1967 – 11/2/2008
The Lyme community has lost an important hero and friend–and so did I. Leslie Wermers, 41, died from heart failure in her sleep on November 2nd. It’s hard to imagine Leslie’s heart giving out, because for anyone who knew her she was all heart. A dear friend to so many and a tireless worker on behalf of the Minnesota and national Lyme communities, Leslie gave everything she had to help others who were sick. And everything she had was an abundant reserve of love and support–even as her own health waned.
