Esther was fully committed to her family and faith. Her kindness and unrelenting benevolence endeared her to all who had the pleasure of knowing her.

Esther was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; brothers, Gustave Jr., Ralph, Arnold and Arthur; and sisters, Hilda, Greta and Clara.
Prayers will be held on Wednesday, December 6th, at Proko Funeral Home at 9:15 a.m. Mass will be celebrated on Wednesday at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church at 10:00 a.m. Interment will follow at St. George Cemetery.
