Mary Lester

May 5, 1960 - July 19, 2019

My sister, Mary Lester, passed away, after a sudden illness on July 19, 2019, while on vacation. Mary's wishes were to be cremated and to have her ashes scattered in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Our Lord and Savior must have known her wishes. She was in Gulf Shores, Alabama when she became ill.

Mary is preceded in death by her mother and father, Betty and Wesley Lester. She is preceded in life, by her sister, Nancy Lester Wall and nephew, Charlie Wall, and her best friend in this life, Holly Lowry.

Mary never met a stranger. She never judged and had a smile for everyone. She always saw the good in people. Animals were a special part of her life, All animals. From the baby blue jay that fell out of it's nest to the male and female peacocks that wondered up in her yard, she took care of them.

The Madison-Oglethorpe Animal Shelter is just half a mile from her home. Anyone who would like to honor her life, can send donations to your local animal shelters, or to the Madison-Oglethorpe Animal Shelter/ or send donations to P.O. Box
453, Danielsville, Ga. 30633.

Our prayers are with you. I had the pleasure working many years ago with Mary and she was one of the sweetest, funniest, most caring people I have ever known. Her smile was as big as Texas. I am sad to learn of her passing!
