After her retirement from Lexis Nexis, Esther enjoyed spending time working in her yard and with her flowers. She participated in many classes and workshops at the Centerville-Washington Township Senior Center and made many friends. She became an avid pottery and stained glass artist and enthusiast, creating beautiful pieces for family and friends that they will always cherish.

Esther was an avid reader and a music enthusiast. Her tastes ranged from Queen to Wayne Newton and everything in between. Esther loved animals. Most notably her precious pups Meagan and Jasper.

Esther loved nature and saw beauty in everything and everyone.
