Marie Haynes LesterOctober 1, 1944 ~ August 4, 2017 (age 72)
Mrs. Marie Haynes Lester, 72 of Flowery Branch, Ga. passed away Friday August 4, 2017 at her residence.
A lifelong resident of Hall County, Mrs. Lester was the daughter of the late D.T. and Pauline Hartley Haynes. She was a homemaker and a member of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church.
Being a wife and mother, and then a Mimi to her seven grandchildren, were her greatest joys. While at times her body was frail and her health failed her often, her strength lay in her spirit, love and faith in the Lord, and for all things family.
Survivors include her son and daughter-in-law, Jason and April Lester, Flowery Branch; daughter and son-in-law, Farrah and John Galley, Pendergrass; grandchildren, Lindsey, Bailey and Alli Jay Lester; Amelia, Ella, Lucy, and Cooper Galley; sister and brother-in-law, Linda and Harry Sasser, Dawsonville. A number of nieces and nephews also survive.
Mrs. Lester is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Keith Lester and brothers, Howard Haynes, Paul Haynes and Tom Haynes.
Funeral services will be held at 3:00 p.m. Monday August 7, 2017 at the Pleasant Hill Baptist Church. Rev. Stacy Phillips and Rev. Jason Lester will officiate. Entombment will follow in the Alta Vista Cemetery Mausoleum. The family will receive friends at Little & Davenport Funeral Home Sunday August 6 from 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m.
