Clara Lisa Morgan Hester transitioned from this earthly life to eternal rest and peace on Thursday, March 14, 2013.  She was born August 24, 1966 to Mr. and Rev. Mrs. Gilbert Morgan.
Clara was educated in the Nottoway County Public School System and graduated from Nottoway Senior High School in 1984.  During her high school years, she was crowned Miss Teenage Nottoway in a local pageant and went on to be first-runner up at the state level.  Lisa was a Cum Laude graduate of Virginia Union University with a degree of Bachelor of Arts, Division of Humanities.  She was a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated and served as Dean of Pledges.
Clara accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Savior at the age of 10 and joined Mt. Zion R.Z.U.A.

Clara loved people and sought to help them.  She loved her Lord and did everything possible to please Him which included Daily reading and studying God’s Word.
She had worked with Tre’s class since the beginning of his school career.  She planned all the fun activities including field trips, bowling trips, etc.  She had participated in and was training for this years 10K race.  It will be hard to fill the many places where she served, but we ask for God’s guidance.
Clara leaves to cherish her memory:  a loving son, Walter Hester, III (Tre’); loving devoted parents, Mr. and Rev. Mrs. Gilbert Morgan of Blackstone, VA; her grandmother, Clara Willingham of Blackstone, VA; a god sister, Linda Morgan Glover of Mt.
