Obituary of Esther Dean

On Saturday March 12, 2022 our beloved Esther Lovette Craighead departed this life. She was born March 24, 1951 in Chase City, Virginia to Benjamin and Dorothy Craighead. She was raised in Brooklyn, New York, where she attended public school and later graduated from Hunter College and Bellevue School of Nursing. It was her lifelong commitment to bring comfort to and care for the sick and infirm. In pursuit of this goal, she worked for forty-two years with the New York City Health and Hospital Corporation as a Registered Nurse in the Intensive Care Unit until retiring in 2010 as a nursing supervisor. Esther was guided by her Christian faith and instilled and nurtured that faith in her family. She loved interacting and connecting with her extended family and held them as valuable and essential components of her life. She was an adoring and devoted wife until her death. Esther leaves to cherish her memory, her loving husband Mark Travis Dean Sr., her two sons Mark Travis Dean Jr., and Michael Trevor Dean, her four sisters; Alice Stuart, Ruth Powell, Carolyn Craighead, Janet Pruitt, and her brother, Michael Craighead and a host of family and friends. She will be missed dearly.
