I cannot let Esther pass without saying what kind of person she was. She, she was outspoken, but also very gutsy, never gave up. My husband, Chuck, and I first me Esther and her husband, Norman, when we built a home next door to her on Gulfview Drive in East Naples in 1979. She had us over immediately for cofffee, offfered to help in anyway with out new home.

She worked at Grand Union in the deli, lifting heavy trays and pots to fill the deli trays in the case. She would then wash them at the end of her shift. Her next job was being in charge of the Children’s Dept of the Collier County Public Library. Two off the things she loved most, children and books. We thought she found her niche. However, she always had a yearning to get a teaching degree in Special Education. So she would work all day, come home and prepare dinner for her family, and then drive to Ft. Myers to take college classses to get that degree. This was to satisfy her own yearning, but she also stated she wanted to show her son, Tad, that it is never too late to get more education. If you want something, you should never give up. After she graduated she went to work for the Collier County Public Schools in Special Education, driving to Immokalee.

In addition to books though, she loved football and baseball. When she was young, her mother had her work for a family with small children, doing the wash and ironing on Sundays. Nothing to watch on TV while she ironed, but sports. Hence, a sports fan was born.

Esther always found time to help friends. If anyone needed help she was there. We later coined the phrase, “Save the Day Esther.” She helped us out when needed help due to car problems. We needed to rent a car while ours was being repaired as we had a dog that was having surgery in Sarasota the next day. First, she offered to drive us, but we insisted on renting a car. So she drove us to the car rental.

Esther will indeed be missed. I’m proud to say she was my friend. Our loss is Heaven’s gain.

Our deepest sympathy to Tad and his family.
