Celebrating the life of

Esther (Essie) Dismukes Guy

February 28, 1959 - January 18, 2022

Esther (Essie) Dismukes Guy

Esther Dismukes Guy “Essie” passed peacefully on January 18, 2022 after a brief illness. She was born in Thomasville, Georgia on February 28, 1959.

Essie graduated from Thomasville High School in Thomasville, Georgia and went on to study Recreational Therapy at Georgia Southwestern College in Americus, Georgia. Essie was a Recreational Therapist at Georgia Regional Hospital for 22 years before retiring.

Growing up, Essie loved playing softball and being on the swim team. All of her summers were spent in Panacea and Cape San Blas where she joined family for various boating activities from fishing charters to shark hole excursions, scalloping in the bay, and enjoying evening sunsets. Friends and family benefited from Essies dedication to bringing excitement and fun to family reunions and parades on Tybee Island. Tybee Island will miss her beautiful soul as she did so much for her community without the bells and whistle‘s. In 2018, Essie was recognized as the Queen of the Beach Bum Parade, a title she took very seriously!

Essie is survived by her life partner, Michelle Brown; niece Taylor Guy; nephew, Robert Harrell Guy, III, Morgan Guy, and her great nephew Robert Harrell Guy, IV, John and Myrtle Marshall, and numerous cousins and second cousins.

Esther is preceded in death by her mother, Leonora McCormick Guy; her father, Robert Harrell Guy, and a brother, Robert Harrell Guy, Jr.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations be made to The Humane Society of Greater Savannah, 7215 Sallie Mood Drive, Savannah, GA 31406.

Ester was one of our favorite cousins. We always looked forward to seeing her at the family reunion. Her warm soft spoken style and kind words always made you feel welcome. She was such a genuine person and touched many more lives than she knew. She will be dearly missed by all.

I have just found out about Esther’s death. My condolences to Brown and her family. We were childhood friends in Thomasville. When I picture Esther it is her smile that warms my heart. My memories of us playing football in the Malone’s front yard, of us visiting her grandparents to get snacks before returning to play, swim team practices at the Malones pool or at the YMCA and of course the deep sea fishing trips with her family will always hold a special place in my heart. I will miss you. You were always kind, loving and most of all fun to be around. Rest easy my friend.
