Ms. Hester Virginia Strain-Lee, 62 of Middletown, New Jersey and formerly of Albany, Georgia passed away peacefully at home with her family by her side on Friday April 10, 2020. She was born in Savannah, Georgia and was an art teacher for 12 years. Hester graduated from Brookdale Community College with an associate degree in art. She also attended Albany State University in Georgia with a concentration in Fine Arts. Hester enjoyed listening to Bon Jovi, gardening, cooking and most of all spending time with family and friends.

She is predeceased by her father, Standup Herbert Strain.

Hester is survived by her mother, Nazie Ree Edwards; two children, Sean and Blair; ex-husband, Sylvester, four brothers; two sisters and three grandchildren, Christian, Jaden and Dylan.

Hester touched many lives and lived life on her terms. She had a powerful faith in Jesus Christ and His ultimate return to save us all. She unapologetically spread His word and His message. Please remember Hester as a beautiful, strong woman, with a generous soul and an unabashed smile. We will always remember her jokes and the selfless way she cared for others. She was proud of herself and her two children.

All services are private and under the direction of the Meadows Funeral Home in Albany, Georgia and the John E. Day Funeral Home in Red Bank, N.J.. Graveside service will be 2:00 P.M. Tuesday, April 21, 2020 at Floral Memory Gardens Cemetery, 120 Old Pretoria Road in Albany, Georgia. Funeral will be attended by immediate family ONLY.

    Hester was a dear classmate. She was always so kind. Her mother happened to have been my first grade teacher at Dunbar Elementary in 1963. I truly am sorry for your loss.
