Erika was truly devoted to her son, Carter, and spent every moment enjoying his spirited nature and engaging with his love of games and sports. An avid athlete, with skill and passion for all sports, Erika also loved cooking, baking, all types of music, and traveling/vacation. Despite her chronic health challenges, her compassion for all people was constant and selfless.During her numerous hospital stays, Erika always ensured that the medical staff – specifically the nurses, had candy and treats to enjoy during their long hours of work. This led her to obtaining her BSN in Nursing at the University of Akron. She had an incredible touch and patience for all of those she cared for. She truly touched the lives of everyone she met, and her light will continue to shine through all of her loved ones.The family of Erika is deeply grateful to the Hospice of Medina County for their amazing care, respect and compassion for Erika and the entire family. Words cannot describe the comfort they provided. Erika’s family invites those touched by her to a Celebration of Life from 4:00 – 7:00pm on Tuesday, May 23, 2023, with the last hour focused on a slideshow and an opportunity for family and friends to share their memories of Erika. In lieu of flowers, the family suggest donations to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation in Erika Brady’s memory.
