A life of love
Lesa McQueen was a woman exemplifying benevolence. Worldly possessions meant little to her, driven purely by her love of family. She gave her all to provide for us, and she was always available to lend an ear when we were in need. A fervent champion of her children, protector of her sister, me-me extraordinaire, and loyal loving wife to her husband of 30 years this daddy’s girl left an irreplaceable mark of humility, kindness and love upon everyone she held dear.
Despite being beautiful, she shied away from pictures. On any given Saturday in the fall, you’d likely hear the bellow of “Touchdown Tennessee, waahoo!” as her Volunteers took the gridiron. She loved driving fast cars, in particular the Mustang GT left to her by her late father. More than anything else she loved to spend quality time conversing and playing with her precious granddaughter Caylin. During the time they spent together all the pain that her body had come to know dissipated.
On May 23, 2022 my mother made her journey to meet our heavenly father, and to be reunited with her father and loved ones passed. She was a 1987 graduate of Happy Valley High School. Though she could not attend church often she was a prayerful and faithful woman.
She was preceded in death by her father, Ronney Hamm, and her father-in-law, George McQueen.
Survivors include her husband, Steve McQueen, who watched over her day and night to see to all her needs; her two sons, Cody McQueen and Steven McQueen, of which she had immeasurable pride; her granddaughter, Caylin McQueen, the light of her world; her sister, Rhonda Malone, her inseparable best friend since birth; her niece, Kasey Bishop, the little girl she never had; her mother-in-law, Louise McQueen, the glue to our family; her brother and sister-in-law, Jim McQueen and Rebecca McQueen; and her own mother, Mary King.
Friends and family will be welcomed at Memorial Funeral Chapel on Thursday, May 26, from 5 to 7 p.m. A graveside service will take place in the Lyons Cemetery at 11 a.m. Friday.
