Lesley A. Wegman

March 5, 1955 — December 5, 2023

Lesley A. (Dunkelberger) Wegman, age 68, passed away peacefully at home on December 5, 2023, surrounded by her family. Born in Reading, PA, she was the daughter of the late Pearl (Goodhart) and LeRoy Dunkelberger. Lesley was a life-long Berks County resident. She grew up in St. Lawrence and graduated as valedictorian from Exeter Township Sr. High School in 1973. She received her bachelor's and master's degrees in education at Kutztown University and minored in visual impairment, learning and teaching Braille during her time there. She was married in 1976 and started her career teaching second grade at Alsace Elementary School before taking a brief hiatus to move into the most cherished role of her life - that of mother to her children. She returned to the classroom in the Oley Valley School District in 1990, where she was a beloved teacher and reading specialist. Her greatest joy was her family, and you could always find her at her children's sporting events or concerts when they were growing up. Lesley loved music, playing the piano and flute throughout her life, singing to her children and grandchildren, and even dabbling in the saxophone in later life. Her tenacity and will to live shined through as she bravely battled leukemia, beating it in 2017 after 5 years. She will be most remembered for her love of her family and for her devotion to teaching, including the many children in Oley whom she taught to read and the children of Alsace Lutheran Church where she taught Sunday school.

She is survived by her husband, G. Martin Wegman, of Exeter Township, and their three children: Tamara (Michael) Jamison of West Chester, PA, Crystal (Michael) Jordan of Exeter Township, PA, and Brian (Kelsey) of Oley, PA. She is the grandmother of Michael, Xander, Colette, Scarlet, Scarlett, Georgia and Matthew. She is also survived by a sister, Joan (BC) Lam, Catlett, VA. She is predeceased by a stillborn daughter, Holly.
