She is survived by a host of other family members and friends whose lives she positively and loving had an impact on.
Ester spent most of her life as a Homemaker, caring for and serving her family. She reflected the character and spirit in her life of the woman in Proverbs 31. Her intent to live a Godly life was evident, and those she touched in this life were benefited by her example. She had a giving spirit, a heart with no guile, and she strove to share that with others by obeying the 2 greatest commands; Matthew 22:36-39 (36 Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 And he said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second like unto it is this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself).
Ester had a smile that could light up any space and she was a most delightful person to be around
There will be a Celebration of Life for Ester on Monday, July 26, 2021 at 3:00pm at the Darst Funeral Home Gardens.
