Obituary of Mary Helen Wester

Please share a memory of Mary to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Mary Helen Wester, 82, of Chattanooga, Tennessee, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 25, 2024. She was born on July 29, 1941 in Corinth, MI, raised in Memphis, TN. She lived in Winchester VA and worked in Washington DC until ultimately settling in Chattanooga, TN with her husband Guy Wester. They married in 1960 and remained married until his death in 2019.  Helen was an avid traveler and was just a few states shy of completing the 50 state challenge. She shared this passion with her beloved granddaughter Haylea, who became her favorite travel companion as well as her best friend. An accomplished scrapbooker, she thoughtfully documented these travels with a flair of her own. Competitive in nature, she enjoyed sparring with her son Keith at Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. She looked forward to watching her “competition shows” with The Amazing Race and Big Brother being among her favorites. Always up to date on current events; with an almost photographic memory, she was frequently relied upon to settle discrepancies and bets!  Preceded in death by her father Howard Capooth and mother Gladys Capooth, sister Joyce Rowland Capooth and husband Guy Wester.  She is survived by her only son Keith Wester, granddaughter Haylea (Lucia) Wester-Pacheco, niece Victoria McFarland, great niece Kimberly McFarland, Grandfriend Mikayla Walker, and Haylea’s Mom Kristie Wester.  Helen’s wishes of not having a funeral will be honored and her ashes will be a part of many future travels as Haylea and Luci help her complete the 50 state challenge. A special thank you to Erlanger’s MICU staff (especially Callie) and Patti with NHC of Chattanooga.
