Esther worked many years for Mission Valley Mills where she was a head grader in the shipping department. There she made many lifelong friends which became part of her extended family. Her love for adventure took her on many trips involving fishing and camping with her favorite place at the coast in Rockport or Port Aransas. She was a devoted animal lover and would rescue anything that found its way to her. Her green thumb was amazing, giving her many children and grandchildren a wide array of plants to fill their homes. Esther also loved to dance and would never turn down a chance to spin on the dance floor. She was active in the Fraternal Order of Eagles for many years and in several community groups that played cards and domino games weekly. She loved life and was always ready to listen & laugh at the numerous escapades of her growing clan. She will be forever loved and missed.

ADD A MEMORY
Kay Lyn Nolte Friedrich

5 July 2019

Dear Hull family,

Sorry to hear about Esther Mae. My name is Kay Lyn Nolter Friedrich. My parents were Eugene Albert Nolte and Norma Dierks Nolte. My parents went fishing with Erwin and Linda Zipp often. My aunt was Christine Zipp Dierks and my uncle was Harry Dierks. I just got through giving the Scholarship committee for Harry and Tina’s scholarship fund my ok to put a vase on uncle Harry’s and aunt Tina’s grave after I noticed it had been stolen. I did not realize that Erwin and Linda had a daughter. I looked in the internet and did not find any information about children from Elmer , Erwin or the Staatz family.

Again, please accept my condolences to the family.

I am attaching a picture of uncle Harry and aunt Tina.

Take care,

Kay Nolte Friedrich and family, Dichtelbach Germany

A very classy, special lady - Esther Mae. You were like a mother to me for many years, and a very special person in my life. Memories of visits to the mill, where Jan and I would have so much fun, memories of dances where we all enjoyed the music and dancing together (dancing with Herb was such a wonderful dance partner), and just thru the years you always meant so much to me. You will always be in my memories as someone very dear. Love to all your family.
Faye
