Maizie Hester, 89, formerly of Longview and Marshall, Texas, passed away, June 3rd, 2022. She was born in Dierks, Arkansas, where she lived until graduation and married, E.H. “Buddy” Hester. Following the birth of her first child, they moved to Marshall and began life in the community. She worked for The Marshall News Messenger, First National Bank, but finally found her true calling, at the Jones Law Firm where she served as a legal assistant for over 40 years.
The Church of Christ was her home, and second family. She taught children, hosted small groups, but the project most close to her heart was the Caring and Sharing ministry she was a part of in the last years of her life. She spent many hours helping people that were unable to feed or clothe their families get back on their feet.
Maizie loved family, being one of six siblings, she was a wife, mother, grand and great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and beloved friend to countless.
