Eleanor Hester Dickens

Always in grace

June 16, 1918 - November 4, 2013

Surrounded by loving family, hearing twice-told stories, laughing, hands held tight, singing “Amazing Grace.” On the last chorus with the simple word, “grace,” one deep breath, exhaled. On the winds of homecoming, an angel took flight.

Eleanor’s legacy of love continues through her daughters, Leigh and Elin, son-in-law, Jerry Blow, grandsons, Michael and Chris Blow and her sister, Catherine Hester Bullock of Durham; and several generations of nieces and nephews.

Preceding Eleanor in death are her parents, Nathaniel Howard Hester and Ada Jacobs Hester, her brothers, N.H. Hester Jr.; Randolph T. Hester, G. W. (Billy) Hester, Stedman Hester and Horace Hester.

The family will receive friends from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 6, at Brooks & White Funeral Home.

The funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 7, at Long Memorial United Methodist Church. Burial will follow at Concord United Methodist Church.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Long Memorial United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 310, Roxboro NC 27573.
