Ester Mae Case, age 89, passed peacefully away in the presence of her children on November 27. Mrs. Case was born Ester Mae Twiggs on August 11, 1931 to Walter Lewis and Lessie Simpson Twiggs in Dawsonville, Georgia. Ester had returned to Georgia six years ago but over her lifetime, she had been privileged to live in Indiana, Louisiana, South Carolina and Florida.
Ester loved arts and crafts. Knitting, ceramics, macrame and oil painting were some of her favorite pastimes. Cooking and canning the crops she grew from her own gardens were never a chore but a pleasure that she shared with those she loved. Her favorite readings were cookbooks, and she had an extensive collection. Ester loved flowers and always tried to have some blooming, inside and outside. Family was most important to her, but she loved all people and never met a stranger.
Ester is preceded in death by her brothers, Bert and Franklin and her sisters, Sarah, Patricia and Mary Grace.
Ester is survived by and will be greatly missed by her children, Joseph Eugene Case of Statesboro, Sue Ellen Case of Statesboro, Randall Justin Case (Cathy) of Indiana and Robin Ann Campbell of Kentucky; her sister, Evelyn Wilkerson, and Evelyn’s son, Gary Wilkerson both of Chiefland, Florida, eleven grandchildren and numerous cousins.
A Graveside service will be Thursday, December 3, 2020 at 1:00 PM at Turner Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery in Enigma, Georgia with Elder Jake Futch officiating.
