    Some memories of my first cousin, Esther. Our families were pretty close. Her father taught me how to make Swiss cheese and take care of honey bees. I remember the day Esther and her sister Joan got married on the same day. We were impressed when Esther became a pilot. In later years I remember her hosting her Eicher cousins at their lovely home on Eberhart Lake. I remember her at most of the Eicher Reunions I was able to attend. May you children and grandchildren be comforted with her memory. She will be missed.

    I always enjoyed when Aunt Esther was around because she had such interesting stories from her travels, plus she always made great appetizers for family meals! 🙂 When I was a kid I remember Esther talking about flying her plane to CA in some sort of competition and I thought, someday I will fly to CA. Little did I know that I would end up living there. Esther will be missed on earth, but I can envision her joining the Eicher family that has gone ahead of her for a great feast!

    Hard to believe my racing buddy has passed. Our time spent in the air and on the ground has always been a special part of my life. I feel blessed to have known you, Esther. I’m smiling even as I write this.

    May Grandma Esther be forever at home. I am blessed to have had her as a grandmother and to have learned the many things she imparted. Her influence is too vast to list. She nurtured creativity, personal growth & independent thinking. She picked me up in her airplane when I lived far away, cut fresh sunflowers when I visited, healed ailments with garden mint, and nourished with loving foods. We swam every summer evening, ate fresh strawberries in the mornings & visited places that fed the imagination. We grilled often, always had the sweetest sweet corn & ate fudge & popcorn in the evenings. She always recorded & saved interesting shows to share, gifted wonderful books, and encouraged me to paint watercolors for hours on end. In the winter it was milk & Oreos by the fireside & mint candies at Christmas. I’m so proud that Esther Wolf had a hand in making me who I am & so happy that so much of my childhood was by her side. May her memory be forever alive & her stories be told.

    Our grandmother’s influence on my life is hard to put into words. We are all blessed to have known her. She encouraged independent thinking, nourished imagination & provided an example of courageous individualism while also honoring community & family. She picked me up in her plane when I lived far away, cut fresh sunflowers when I came to visit, and healed ailments with garden mint. In the summer we always had dill dip & evening swimming. In the winter evenings were spent by the fireside with milk & Oreos or fudge & popcorn. At Christmas there was fudge, mint candies, and classical guitar music. She always taped & shared interesting shows, gifted fascinating books, and encouraged me to paint watercolors for hours on end. She grew the most delicious strawberries & the sweetest sweet corn. She was strong & caring, resilient & funny, adventurous & witty. May she be forever at home, may her memory live on & her stories be told.
