Nezzie Lee Lockridge

January 30, 1971 - April 25, 2024

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Nezzie Lockridge, born on January 30, 1971. Nezzie was a warm, welcoming, and kind-hearted woman, known for her unwavering spirit and her ability to make anyone feel at home. Her headstrong personality saw her through many a tough situation, and she will be greatly missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing her.

Nezzie is survived by her devoted son, Luke Lockridge, and his wife, Amber. She is survived by the love of her life Eric Huffman. She is also survived by her sister, Bonnie Troxell, and her husband Lee, and their sons Darrell and Brian. She is survived by nephew Daniel Lockridge, his wife Tara, and their children. In addition, she is survived by unofficially adopted sons, Brandon Johnson, Steven Fink, and Aaron Mangum whose lives she touched. She is survived by additional loved ones, fur babies, friends, and family. She was predeceased by her parents, Ruby and John Campbell, and her brother, Willie Mullins.

Nezzie was an alumna of Stuarts Draft High School, and graduated in 1989. In 2004, she began her career at Hershey Chocolate, where she formed lasting friendships and met the love of her life. 

She loved spending time on the lake with loved ones and was a regular at local spots such as Mill Street and Staunton Lanes. When it came to vacationing, she loved cruise ships and casinos. Nezzie cared deeply about animal welfare and never met a pet she didn't love. 

Nezzie welcomed so many people into her heart and her family. She had a way of making the people around her feel cherished and valued. Her favorite color was purple, as vibrant as her spirit, and as deep as her heart.

Nezzie loves both flowers and animals, we ask for those that would prefer to make donations to the Augusta ASPCA, P.O. Box 2014, Staunton, VA  24402.

Nezzie's indomitable spirit, her love for life, and her unwavering kindness will be remembered by all who knew her. Her life was a testament to the person she was, and her memory will undoubtedly bring comfort to those who mourn her passing. Rest in peace, Nezzie, you will be sincerely missed.

A celebration of her life will take place at 3:00 PM Thursday, May 2, 2024 in the chapel of McDow Funeral Home, officiated by Pastor Ely Gazman. Friends and family will be received from 2:00 PM until service time.
