Letha Frances (Lester) Washington

November 24, 1949 ~ October 8, 2020 (age 70)


Letha Lester was born on November 24, 1949 to Aquilla and Geraldine Lester in Hillsboro, TX.  She was preceded in death by her mother Geraldine, father, Aquilla, grand-daughter, LaMika, daughter, Monique, sister, Leona and brother, Lonnie McGensie. She was the third of four children.  Letha left her earthly life to begin her heavenly life on Thursday, October 8, 2020.

She began her spiritual walk and accepted Christ at an early age and became a member of the Good Samaritan Baptist Church in Waco, TX where she served until her health began to fail.

Letha received her formal education at Peabody High School in Hillsboro, TX and was a 1968 High School graduate. She united in holy matrimony with Charles Washington, who preceded her in death.

She was employed as a Medical Assistant most of her adult life and dedicated a great deal of time caring for her granddaughter; La’Mika Outley aka “Sha Sha Mooka”. Letha was outgoing, blunt, strong-willed, friendly, caring and had a mouth that jarred many people nerves (those that knew her did not take it personal). She touched many lives and made many friends.

Letha leaves to cherish her precious memories: children: Nyla McCullough(Derrick), Washondria Lester, Stephanie Kemp(Joffe), Derrick Lester(Stacie), Annette Washington, Charles Washington Jr. (Michelle), Newman Washington(Debra), KarenPowell(William). Her greatest joy was her (23) grandchildren; (28) great-grandchildren and (1) great-great grandchild, and a host of other relatives and friends.
