Lester Huskins


Lester Lee Huskins, Mitchell County native and 74 years young, went home to be with the Lord Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019, in Florence, South Carolina, hospice. He joins his much-loved mother, Lessie Young Ransom; and his two sisters, Nola Anne Huskins DeWitt and Shelba Huskins Woody.

Lee worked as a nurse in private care, hospitals and nursing homes. He loved children and animals, and he delighted in helping others. His altruism continues as he has donated his body to research. 

Lee is survived by his brother, Jack Huskins Jr.; his beloved nieces, Jacquelyn Boone and Rhonda Scott; and his many great-great-nieces and great-great-nephews. 

A memorial service will be this coming summer at Lily Branch Baptist Church Cemetery in Mitchell County.
