Esther’s greatest passion was golf. She was a long-time member and past ladies club champion of Webster City Country Club. The highlight of her golfing days was her celebrated hole-in-one in the early sixties. She actively participated in many city and club tournaments, helping to promote women’s golf in the Webster City area. She also enjoyed a good card game and could be found at many a bridge or gin rummy table with friends.
Esther was a dedicated and faithful member of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church and was active in the Rosary Society. She was employed in Webster City for many years by dentist, Dr. Robert Golly, loved working with the patients, and they loved her.
We will miss her.
