Lesta (Smith)


December 18, 1939 – September 12, 2020

Lesta Jean Wagner of Bonney Lake, WA, passed away on Saturday, September 12, 2020. She was born to the late Henry and Ruth Smith on December 18, 1939 In Craig, CO. She continued to live in Craig through graduation from high school and then married and moved out of state. Her love for the area never left her with many of her fondest memories being time spent on her grandmother’s ranch and playing in the high school band.

Lesta’s love for Jesus Christ and her family were her passions. She was a member of Redemption Bible Church of Bonney Lake and loved her extended church family. She was also a member of a bowling league with her late husband, Howard Wagner, in Bonney Lake which she enjoyed immensely and was an avid fan of Professional Bull Riding.

Lesta was preceded in death by her husband Howard and is survived by her seven children, many grandchildren, great grandchildren, and extended family.

A memorial service will be held in the Bonney Lake Area when health restrictions allow.
