Patricia Justus (Lester)
Patricia Lester Justus, age 50 of Hurley, Virginia passed way on Saturday, June 16, 2018, at the Bristol Regional Medical Center, Bristol, Tennessee, following a years, long battle against complications of diabetes.
Born July 28, 1967, at Grundy, Virginia, she was the daughter of the late Sanford and Geraldine Blankenship Lester. Patricia was known among friends as a caring , always jovial Companion. She was able, even in the bleakest circumstances to find humor and to share it with those close to her. Her quick laugh and often self deprecating wit brought smiles to all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
Although the defining feature of Patricia’s last months were her failing health, she faced each day with optimism and held on to her Joie de vivre, until she closed her eyes in death. During this time, she was particularly fond of recalling beautiful moments shared with family and friends. Throughout her life, of which there were many, her measured optimism, her humor, and her contagious laughter will keep Patricia’s memory alive in our hearts for years to come.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by 3 sisters, Vickie Lester, Pamela Lester-Dotson, Crystal Lester, and 1 brother, Christopher Lester.
