Esther was the pinnacle of class and elegance.  Whether it was family or some of her many lifelong friends, she loved having company.  Her backyard in Hough’s Neck hosted one of the most beautiful views of the Boston skyline that Quincy has to offer.  Esther enjoyed traveling and loved her winter home in Naples and her summer home on Cape Cod in South Yarmouth.   In her spare time, she volunteered with Meals on Wheels, was a member of the Hough’s Neck Garden Club and spent many hours at the YMCA where she enjoyed Yoga and group exercise classes.
