TERRE HAUTE —

She lived for her family members and loved them dearly. Esther’s memory will live on in the hearts of those she touched for generations to come.
She is survived by her loving daughter, Alice and husband Michael Noel of Herculaneum, Mo. She was the proud and loving MomMom of Jennifer and husband Michael Knox of Brownsburg, Laura and husband Jay Wilson of Gosport, and Eric Randall of Crest Hill, Ill. Esther also leaves behind her two great-grandchildren, Kasey Knox and Brooklynn Wilson; along with several nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins and friends.
In addition to her parents and her husband, Esther was welcomed home to heaven by her brother, Robert Osborn.
