A very special Thank You to her niece, Carol Ann Folian, for her loving touch and songs shared in the moment Esther departed. Esther enjoyed great success as Avon Products Columbus District Manager.

All making for memorable family vacations and special holiday gatherings for friends and family. With great pride in her gamesmanship, Esther took no prisoners in any board game, cards or Bridge. With her loving heart and a sparkle in her eye, life was exhilarating for all with Esther leading the way. She will be dearly missed. Esther was blessed with the good hearts and great care at Country Views (Sunbury) Memory Wing staff and Bella Care Hospice.
