Esther also leaves many friends including Wilfred Scharfl “More a son than a friend”. Along with her three sons, she was predeceased by her parents, Robert and Annie as well as two sisters and a brother. Esther was born on the family homestead West of Redcliff on February 2, 1931. Once married, she lived a short time in Iddesleigh before moving to Suffield where she ran the store located next to the highway. Esther was a very social person, and this helped her to excel in her roles while working with the Cypress View Foundation after moving to Medicine Hat. She had a great sense of humour and helped everyone enjoy the lighter side of life. The oven was always on and her door was always open! Esther was an exceptional cook and relished in every opportunity to prepare a meal, especially if it meant an opportunity to bring the family together. Her legacy will live on within the strong family values she instilled in her children and the memory of her warm smile and caring nature.
