Barbara Lane Lester, 76, of Hixson, died on Sunday, April 29, 2012.
Barbara was a devoted wife and a loving mom. She supported her husband throughout his 26-year military career, making homes for her family wherever the Army sent them. She was always actively involved in PTA and Scouts. She loved traveling, playing cards, enjoying a good meal at her daughter’s home, or sitting and visiting at her son’s with TiAmo on her lap.
“Granny Barb” loved sending surprise packages to all her grandchildren, as well as staying in touch with friends made over the years. She will be missed by many.
Barbara was preceded in death by her parents, Gilbert Owen and Helen Elizabeth Perry, of Louisville, Ky., and her husband of 60 years, Frank C. Lester, Sr., who died on March 26, 2012.
She is survived by her daughter, Vicki (Terry) Evans of Hixson; son, Frank C. (Forrest) Lester, Jr. of Lawton, Ok.; daughter, Cindy (Hal) Mollenkopf of McKinney, Tx.; nine grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.
Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Anthony Avitabile and staff, Dr. Larry Schlabach and staff, friends and neighbors for their excellent care and compassion.
