Celebration of Life

As we all mourn the loss of Esther Bothwell, beloved mother, grandmother, cousin, aunt, sister and friend also known as "Goosey" we are praying for strength and guidance for her children Pam, Jackye, Denys, and Jimmy to put her to rest with love and dignity. Goosey was a single mother who worked hard to raise her children and enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren even when we got into all of her makeup. She was an amazing woman of strength and high morals, and we all loved her silly character of sarcasm and jokes. At this time, her children are in need of any amount of donations you are able to give instead of flowers to cover services, travel expenses, and cremation. We ask to continue covering us all in prayers as we put "Goosey" to rest. We plan on holding services in California where we can all be together and eventually take her back to the "garden" to be with her siblings and mother in South Dakota where she was from. Our whole family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts. We love you Goose.
