Esther worked many years for Mission Valley Mills where she was a head grader in the shipping department. There she made many lifelong friends which became part of her extended family.
Her love for adventure took her on many trips involving fishing and camping with her favorite place at the coast in Rockport or Port Aransas. She was a devoted animal lover and would rescue anything that found its way to her. Her green thumb was amazing, giving her many children and grandchildren a wide array of plants to fill their homes. Esther also loved to dance and would never turn down a chance to spin on the dance floor. She was active in the Fraternal Order of Eagles for many years and in several community groups that played cards and domino games weekly. She loved life and was always ready to listen & laugh at the numerous escapades of her growing clan. She will be forever loved and missed.
