Mary Janella Chester, a resident of Baton Rouge, LA, passed away at home in her sleep on October 5, 2022. She was born in Jacksonville, Florida on October 16, 1946.
Preceded in death by her mother, Hester Thomas Chester, died November 23, 1974; father, Jerrel F. Chester Sr., died August 31, 1979; brother, Jerrel F. Chester Jr., died June 23, 2001.
She is survived by her brother, L. Stephen Chester and sister-in-law, Janet Schilling, both residents of Baton Rouge, LA.
Mary kept her independent spirit until the end. Though her frailties were many, she persevered on her own, and amazed us at how she could carry on. We are glad her passing was easy, it was a gift from her Creator, a testament to her determination to be at peace, at home.
