Esther was born in Elkhart, IN on August 29, 1920 and moved to Hammond, where she made her home in the Hessville area.  She enjoyed bowling for many years, crocheting, watching the Chicago Cubs and Bears games, and stopping by the American Legion Post 232 to visit with friends.  Those lucky to know Esther enjoyed her sense of humor and telling it like it is.  We will miss her every day and keep her in our hearts.
