Posted Condolences:


  1. So very sorry for your loss. God Bless

  2. I had the privilege to meet Esther at dialysis in Jamestown many years ago. She was a beautiful person, her smile was contagious. She also had mischievous side to her which I enjoyed. I will miss her so much, she melted my heart. My prayers go out to Esther family for there great lose.

  3. Saddened for your loss. She and Jim were very good neighbors near Brantford
    and when I would haul some hay to them they would always invite me into their
    home for coffee and cookies plus the added benefit of a lot of good conversation.
    Such a nice lady with a pleasant way about her. Gary

  4. I grew up with Esther in the big city of Hamberg and we attended high school together in Fessenden. Have had many nice lunches in recent years in Carrington — Esther, Helen Rask, Shirley Kittelson and myself. Always fun to recall memories, laugh and have a wonderful lunch together. Will miss that as we are all scattered to new homes now.

    My condolences to Esther’s family, Pearl and Sonny who of course I grew up with also.
