Died November 24, 2007 two days shy of her 95th birthday. Loving mother of Dixie (Chuck) Daniels; cherished grandmother of Deidre Daniels; dearest great grandmother of Christopher Williams; dear sister in law of Joan Henderson; loving aunt to Robert, Catherine, Patricia Deborah, Nancy and Susan; our dear great aunt to eleven and friend to many. Esther was preceded in death by her brother and two sisters.
Esther attended Saint Peters Episcopal Church in Ladue and worked for many years at the Rand Corporation and Systems Development Corporation in Santa Monica, CA having a top secret clearance. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star for over 70 years.
Not to have Esther in our lives is a most profound loss. She met the burdens of life unflinchingly and prevailed. She was highly intelligent and unshakably moral. Her wisdom and practicality helped guide me through a few tough times in my own life. She never failed to accept me, or anyone she loved, with open arms and however they came to her. Childhood memories are particularly precious. She was loyal to her family, friends, Church and Country. She was a remarkable woman and I shall miss her all the days of my life, and be grateful for having known her.
My love to all of you,
Cathi (Furman Miller)
