Obituary for Hester Johnson Warren

On December 3, 2018, Hester Johnson Warren, 90, peacefully transitioned to her Heavenly Home. Hester was born November 2, 1928 in Wilkes County to Smith Parks Johnson and Stella Johnson Johnson. She was one of fourteen brothers and sisters.

Hester was preceded in death by her parents, her husband of 70 years, Paul Eugene Warren, sisters, Dora Martin, Carolyn Sheets, Emily McHargue, Rebecca Dickenson, Fannie Roope and Mable Holloman and brothers, John Johnson, George Johnson and Harrison Johnson.

She leaves to cherish her memory two daughters, Carol Jean Byers and husband Gary, Wanda Triplett and husband Ronnie, one son, John Parks Warren and wife, Mary, three grandchildren, Kimberly Byers Buchanan and husband Clay, Amanda Blackburn and husband Matthew and Lesley Warren and (Jessica), two great-grandchildren, Sophia Grace Buchanan and William Harrison Buchanan of Hickory, NC, one brother, Charlie Johnson and wife Sharon of Knoxville, Tennessee, three sisters, Annie Johnson, Ruth McHargue and Lucille Rhoades of North Wilkesboro, many nieces and nephews and a host of friends.

Hester was a beautiful person with a giving heart. She worked in the cafeteria at Fairplains Elementary School and Mulberry Elementary School for forty three years where she was very concerned that every child had a good lunch. She cared for many children in the Fairplains Community and kept the Nursery at Fairplains Baptist Church for fifty plus years earning her the name “Mama Hester”. In 1966, Hester was named “Mother of the Year’ by Fairplains Baptist Church. In March, 2016, Hester was recognized by the church (along with Reva McLean) with a dinner and plaque for being a longtime member with Outstanding Service to the Church. She joined Fairplains Baptist Church in 1946. She was very faithful and committed. She sang in the choir, served on the Nursery Committee, the Baptism Committee, the Food Committee, the Decorating Committee and Women on Mission and was always there to serve food and snacks to the children as well as adults every year at Bible School.

Hester baked delicious cakes for all events at the church, birthdays, deaths, showers, weddings and any other special occasions. She shared her cakes and homemade bread with many people all over Wilkes County. She was a very talented person, making crafts, baskets, dolls, jewelry, Easter bunnies and vests. She loved her bead class at the Senior Center where she was working on making Chrismons for the family. She squeezed lots of living out of her ninety years here on earth. Hester was loved by all and will be greatly missed.

Funeral services will be held 2:00 PM Thursday, December 6, 2018 at Fairplains Baptist Church with Rev. David Dyer and Rev. Glenn Dancy officiating. Burial will be in Mt. Lawn Memorial Park. The family will receive friends from 12:30 until 1:45 prior to the service at the church.

The family would like to thank Dr. Jon Thompson and his staff, Dr. Evans and staff , the staff of Wake Forest Baptist Health-Wilkes Medical Center and Wake Forest Care at Home Hospice.

Flowers will be accepted or memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society, PO Box 9 North Wilkesboro, NC 28659.
