Patricia Gaye Lester

March 20, 1945 — July 9, 2022


Patricia Lester, 77, passed away July 9, 2022.

Patricia was a loving and determined woman who was kind and thoughtful.

Patricia grew up in Bryan, Texas and because of her love for learning, she earned a PHD from A&M in Philosophy and two Master Degrees. She was a librarian for 26 years at Houston Public Library. June 24, 2011 was deemed “Patricia Lester Day” by the Houston Mayor for her hard work and dedication.

She loved learning everything about everything and was strong with her opinions and knowledge. She was true to her beliefs and knew what she wanted. After a lot of research, she converted to the Jewish faith.

Due to her love of jewelry, Patricia had an extensive collection and spent a lot of time with her favorite jewelers. She loved her family and its history and ancestry, needlepoint, and all things cats, especially her own cat, Katie. She didn’t cook, but she had an affinity for kitchen gadgets! She was involved in book clubs, needlepoint get-togethers, and jewelry lover’s clubs. Her most memorable saying is “I probably shouldn’t have said that, but oh well.”

Patricia is preceded in death by her parents, Jack W. Lester Sr. and Francis Lester, and her brother, Jack W. Lester Jr.

Patricia will be missed by her nephew and his wife, Lance and Chelsea Lester and their two children, Sadie and Trey. Also, numerous friends who loved her as well.
