Lesa was raised and educated in Accomack County, Virginia, where she graduated from Arcadia High School in 1990. She then went to further her education at Virginia Commonwealth University. Lesa was employed by the Wicomico County Department of Corrections for over fifteen years.
She accepted Christ into her life at an early age and joined Tabernacle Baptist Church in Horntown, Virginia. It was at Tabernacle that Lesa began to wear her many hats for the Lord. She was a consecrated Deaconess, served as an Usher, as well as the Youth and Praise Dance Director. Lesa was the secretary for the Thomas L. Dickerson Inspirational Choir and was the church’s bus driver.
Lesa was preceded in death by her first husband of twelve years in 2011, Rodney M. Turner. On August 23, 2014, Lesa found love again and joined in holy matrimony to Stephan D. White, Sr.
Lesa was one of a kind; she enjoyed singing, shopping, and most of all spending time with the loves of her life, her boys. Lesa had a huge heart when it came to her family and would do anything for them. She spoke her mind and held nothing back.
