Born March 27, 1954 in Buchanan County, Virginia, she was a daughter of the late Earnel and Adleen Hill Lester. A lifelong resident of Buchanan county, she was a member of Fletchers Ridge Freewill Baptist Church. She had formerly been employed at Honaker Mills, Lebanon Apparel, and Potomac. She enjoyed sewing and quilting, but most of all spending time with her family.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two brothers, Parker Lester and Ival Lester.
Survivors include her husband of forty-one years, Garrett Harris of the home; three sisters, Janet O’Neal and husband, Tony of Whittier, North Carolina, Anita Holman of Davenport, Virginia, and Holly Barton of Whittier, North Carolina; two brothers, Darrell Lester and wife, Debbie of Vansant and Dwayne Lester and wife, Pam of Piedmont, South Carolina; several nieces and nephews, whom she adored and loved very much, also survive.
In consideration of health and well-being of others, services will be a private family gathering with Rev. James Tiller, Rev. Jeff Ball, and Rev. Troy Harris officiating. Interment will follow in the Harris Cemetery on the Council Mountain section of Buchanan County.

My deepest sympathy to the Harris and Lester families. Sue and I go back many years, I got aquatinted with her during her senior year of high school. We worked together many years and became good friends. She was a very special friend. Loved her dearly! Drema Ray
