She was predeceased by her grandchildren, Jason and Katelyn Hill; a sister, Helen and James Quinn; and a brother-in-law, Harold Canada.
Esther will always be remembered to those who loved her and knew her as a great cook, good friend, wife, mother, favorite aunt, wonderful grandma and great-grandma! The ready smile and sense of humor gave us all a chuckle.
Calling hours will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 2, 2013, at the Gilbertsville Presbyterian Church. A memorial service will be held immediately at 1 p.m. at the church with the Rev. Mark Piedmonte, officiating.
Burial will be at a later date at the convenience of the family.
In lieu of flowers, friends are asked to make contributions to the Gilbertsville Emergency Squad, or the Capital Improvement Fund of the Butternuts Valley Grange or the Capital Improvement Fund of the Gilbertsville Presbyterian Church in her memory.
