 Esther was born in Middle Lake Sask. in a two-room sod house. Esther was quiet natured, hardworking, honest, compassionate and generous. She had a passion for cooking, entertaining, fashion and shopping. Her interests included country music, shopping and the Canucks. Above all Esther’s greatest love was reserved for her family. Her greatest joy in life was her children and grandchildren. She will be deeply missed.

The heavens have opened up and Jesus has her in his loving arms.


  1. Tovie, George, Bill, Cody, Jessica, Kirby and Dave. I was so sorry to hear of Esters passing. I remember her fondly. Sleep overs at the Johnson house was always fun back in the old days! Ester was always welcoming, kind and loving! She always had a smile on her face and a kind word! Her gentle spirit will be missed! Much love to all of you at this difficult time. I am sorry I was not able to attend her ‘celebration of life’ but I was out of Country. Please know that I am thinking of you!

  2. Our condolences to Tovie and her family…
