Eleisha Renee Gantt

January 23, 1984 ~ March 9, 2023 (age 39) 39 Years Old


Eleisha Renee Gantt departed this life on March 9, 2023, completing her God-given time on earth. She was a beautiful twin born with Eboneisha Gantt and delivered one minute earlier, making her the oldest, on January 23, 1984, in Columbus, Ohio, to parents, Robert Gantt, Jr., and Laura (Gantt) Ighedesa.

Early in life, we knew Eleisha was uniquely purposed because of the energy and array of sunshine she portrayed. She had an ability to problem solve while utilizing an art to communicate and advocate for others. She was a magnet that attracted people, and you could always find her networking and connecting to anyone in her space while bringing forth life to any party. Eleisha lived her life to the fullest and encouraged others to do the same. Eleisha daily researched information that educated herself and others on current affairs and its effects.

Eleisha was in the making of a legendary and innovative person. Her creative journey in life would exceed her capacity to fulfill all the possibilities she found due to the issues of life. Yet, she did not allow her personal limitations to dictate what she wanted to achieve. Even with her underlying health conditions, she remained a risk-taker and had a positive outlook on life. When absent from others, Eleisha would find some way to connect or communicate with as many people as she felt needed support. Eleisha kept a smile that would light up anyone’s day, regardless of her own suffering.

Eleisha was an artist, innovator, and very intuitive. Her art showed through her love of rapping taking form on the stage with friends in the group, “Blockmonstuz.” She loved tattooing, drawing, and writing. She found various ways to pour into her nephews and niece, the oldest Cavion, Mekhi, Maleak (godson), Solomon, Dajohn, Daion, Zion, My’Anna, and Mywaun, and took the time to introduce them to great opportunities which impacted their lives and others around them. She was such a sweet daughter, sister, auntie, and close friend to you and many others. She loved her family!

Eleisha is sadly missed and will never be forgotten.

She leaves behind her beautiful sisters, nephews and a niece, alongside her many uncles, aunts, sister-friends, brother-friends, and a host of acquaintances she met along the way.

She was preceded in death by Robert (Marion) Gantt, Sr., and John (Eleanore) Mosley, Sr., uncle, Mitchell Johnson, aunt, Charlotte Johnson, and other extended family members. She is survived by her parents, Dr. Laura J. Mosley-Ighedesa and Robert (Dwenn) Gantt, Jr.; immediate siblings, Cierra Idemudia, Eboneisha Gantt, and Patrecia Gantt; aunts,  Linda Williams, Brenda Cermak, Cassandra Johnson, Yvonne Mosley, Elaine Moncrief, Marion (Kim) Williams, Deborah (Larry) Baker, and Janine Gantt; godmother, Evangelist Bernadette Adams; and uncles, Edgar (Natalie) Brownlee and John Mosley, Jr.

The family extends our greatest appreciation to all who supported us with prayer, and financial support submitted on behalf of the family, and service during our time of bereavement.
