Martha Ann Lester Treadway passed away June 12, 2021, at Regency Hospital in Meridian, Mississippi at the age of 82.

There are not enough words to express how big of an impact this amazing, sweet woman had on so many lives. She was the rock and foundation of her family. She was the Mother, Grandmother, Friend, and Confidant to many. She was known by many as Polly or Motor- mouth by her brother, Jack. Her house was where everyone wanted to hang out and always knew the door was open. She’d give you the shirt off of her back, everyone knew if you needed something, just ask Granny, cause she probably had it. She will be remembered and missed by many. The world will never be the same for any of us again. She was the bravest, strongest person I ever knew. She never gave up on herself or let anyone else give up on themselves.

She was preceded in death by a son, Joseph Andrew Lester; husband J.D. Treadway; parents, Arthur and Betsy Langley; granddaughter/daughter, Jazmon Lester-King; nephew, David Langley; brother, Frank Langley; son-in-law, Will Dial; great-great granddaughter, Mary-Anne Smith; ex-husband, Jarrell Lester, Sr.; and a very special friend/sister, Mary Jo Patterson.
