Esther’s family moved to Roswell shortly after her birth. She attended East Side Elementary School and East Grand Plains Elementary where she attended special education classes.
She loved all the holidays, especially Christmas, she would decorate and would always wear something special to celebrate. Growing up, the family always had pets and she was very fond of all of them, especially the cats.
Being a resident at Casa Maria for the past four years was very good for her because of her need for a regular schedule. She looked forward to her weekly adventure of going out to eat and shopping. She loved to shop and had a great love of jewelry.
Esther is preceded in death by her parents Frank Wesley in 1968 and Willie Mae in 2002 and sister, Mary Ann Vandeveer in 2013.
She is survived by her sister Martha Gayle Vandeveer Bond and her husband Lerry Dan Bond of Carrizozo, NM; brothers Frank Stanley Vandeveer and his wife Deanna of Roswell, NM and John Wesley Vandeveer and his wife Lisa of Clarksville, AR; nieces Deborah Bond Kuenning and her husband Lance, Mary Beth Bond, KeriJo Vandeveer Rigtrup and Melissa Gayle Vandeveer; nephews Jeremy Vandeveer, Matthew Vandeveer, Zachery Vandeveer, and Nathan Vandeveer; great-nieces: Ashliegh Rigtrup, Samantha Vandeveer, and Maddie Griffin and great-nephews Carter Kuenning, Bennett Kuenning, Jaren Rigtrup, Michael Rigtrup, and Pax Anderson.
