Esther was a farmer and rancher in Portage, MT. She loved living at the ranch and farming. In the spring you would find her plowing the fields in the early morning until late into the evening; still with enough energy to cook supper.

In her spare time Esther enjoyed racing jeeps with the Cascade County 4 Wheelers and won several 1st Place trophies in her 1945 Willy’s Jeep, “Little Sweetie.” She love riding her horse, Moony’s Mare, to round up the cows for branding and on overnight mountain rides with the Chouteau County Trailblazers. Esther was an avid gardener and loved working in her flower beds. Esther was also very creative and skilled at crocheting and knitting.
