In Our Prayers: Charlotte “Chan” L. Diegel

Charlotte L. Diegel, “Chan”, (nee Lesemann) passed away peacefully at her home on Monday, September 13, 2021 and went to be with her Lord at the age of 80 years. Born on May 13, 1941, in Charleston, South Carolina, Chan was a Registered Nurse by training but spent her life serving as a homemaker, wife, and mother.

She is survived by her loving husband, Pastor Ronald L. Diegel, to whom she was married on September 11, 1965. She is lovingly remembered by her children, Ronald B. Diegel (Ronnie) and Charlotte Rebecca (Becky) Dezarn; she is also fondly remembered by her grandchildren, Sarah M. Gainey (Madison), Andrew B. Diegel, Jackson S. Jernigan, Ashton M. Jernigan, Ava Coleman Diegel; a step-grandchild, Shelby M. Dezarn; brother, Louis J. Lesemann; and nephew, Mikell L. Lesemann.

The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to the Lutheran Hospice nurses including Kathy Cooley, Christy Shepler, and Aimee Aline. Additionally, the family would like to thank Grace Caregivers and especially Ashley Kitts. Lastly, sincere gratitude is extended to caregiver Debbie Landis for her help and devotion to the family. The family is appreciative of the ministry of St. Stephens Lutheran Church in Lexington, South Carolina, and Pastor Jason Antley.

A graveside service will be held 3:00 p.m. Thursday, September 16, 2021, at St. Stephens Church Cemetery. The family will receive friends following the service in the fellowship hall at the church. Memorials may be made to St. Stephens Lutheran Church 119 North Church St. Lexington, SC 29072. Barr-Price Funeral Home and Crematorium, Lexington Chapel is assisting the family.

Almighty God, source of all mercy and giver of comfort: Deal graciously, we pray, with those who mourn, that, casting all their sorrow on you, they may know the consolation of your love; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
– Prayer from the Lutheran Book of Worship
