I'm sorry to hear of Esther's passing. I've thought of her often and loved to visit with her and have coffee when she was still living in Centerville. I last got to see her when a group of residents came down to Jak's in Viborg in the summer of 2019 and we were able to visit for a short time.

She was so good to my kids over the years when they'd help her around her yard with small projects. She even treated them to a day at Wild Water West as long as I did the driving to get us all there!

My memories of her will be treasured for a long time to come.

Thank you Debbie! Mom really enjoyed spending time with you. I didn't remember that she went to Wild Water West with you, but it doesn't surprise me. I'm sure she had a blast! She appreciated your help and your friendship. Thank you for sharing your memories.

My apologies for the bad grammar and misspelled words...I didn’t reread it before I posted it..

My sympathies to Esther’s family. I have been blessed to be able to call her my friend. I enjoyed being able to help her while she lived in the Villa and then visiting her frequently in the in. Only being able to visit with her when she was outside or on the phone has been tough on her and me. I was so saddened to here of her passing...I didn’t realize that she had moved to the nursing home...and that she was ill. HIPPA keeps us from finding things like that out. Hugs to all of you.

Thank you for your condolences Bernie. Mom loved all of her friends at the Inn. Mom didn't actually move to the nursing home. She was trying to get better so she could move back to her apartment at the Inn. We are so sad that mom passed, but she just couldn't get better . Thank you, From Esther's Family.
