Condolences for Esther F. Fruechte


I'm sorry I was unable to attend the visitation or funeral, however, my thoughts were with you. Esther was a dear lady and will be truly missed. God Bless you and your families.
From Becky Auna

Mary & Bud, Although I cannot be there, my thoughts are with all of you. I'm just thinking about some of the times we all had together when we were all much younger and gathered at Grandma & Ervin's for Christmas. I always loved going to your Mom & Dad's and sitting in their "back room". Lots of great memories of Aunt Esther over the years.
From Linda Meyer

Esther was truly an amazing woman and I will always hold dear memories of her. I recall that she always had Juicy Fruit gum in her purse (I believe I stole on once and was caught and it taught me a lesson that I've never forgotten). I remember going to visit she and Ray and picking apples and hearing their stories about going to the Holy Land. I still have the beautiful cradle that Ray made with the perfectly sized quilt made by Grandma Esther. You all in my thoughts and prayers this week and in the coming weeks of adjustment.

From Janelle Halverson

You have our sympathy. I will miss Esther. I have always admired her. I have fond memories of our years of teaching released time classes and VBS together. We were talking about the cider and applesauce making events at her place. That applesauce was the first solid food our babies ate. Janelle even invited herself into the family by calling her Grandma Esther. Let us know if we can help you somehow.
