Laura Beth Nester


In loving memory of Laura Beth Nester. She lived her life full of love for Jesus, her family, and others. Laura was the definition of selfless, beautiful, smart, strong, and stubborn. Her smile and personality brightened every room she was in. The light she left in this world will not dim any time soon.

Laura was born September 18, 1981 in Ronceverte and was the daughter of James and Bessie Wykle Workman of Lewisburg.

Laura was able to find the love of her life (Josh) in God’s perfect timing. She was extremely proud of her three children, Abby, Jase, and Lydia. She is also survived by her sister, Jessica Ray and her husband, Jerry.

She had a passion for teaching others and, while in the classroom, Laura put her all into each student. She will be remembered by teachers and students alike for her love of Dr. Seuss. Her favorite moments were dressing up like book characters to help teach kids how to read and have fun while learning.

Laura always enjoyed a challenge and was continuously investing in her education. She holds a Masters in Teaching and a Masters in Business degree. Her favorite part of each week was spending time worshiping Jesus with her church family and being in multiple small groups at Bethesda Church.

She made a great impact on everyone she met. She will be greatly missed by her family, friends, students, co-workers, and everyone who knew her.

A celebration service for the life well lived for Laura will be held on Friday, March 11, 2022 at 7 p.m. at the Bethesda Church in White Sulphur Springs with Pastor Chad Dingess officiating.

The family will receive their family and friends from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Friday, March 11, 2022 at the Bethesda Church.

“Sometimes you never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”

-Dr Seuss.
