Esther was born in Scotland on July 8th, 1932. She moved with her family to a village just outside Coventry in 1940 at 8 years of age, in time to witness the horrors of the blitz in November 1940. Being near to Coventry, there were also the endless bombings at night, with severe vibrations which frequently put the paraffin light out. These, along with all of her other wartime experiences left an indelible mark on her life forever.

The family moved often with their father’s job and, whilst living at Husband’s Bosworth in Leicestershire, Esther left school at the age of 14 to take a job as a live-in mother’s helper in Coalville. She joined the local church youth club where she met Kenneth when she was 16 years old. They married 2 years later, having rented a house behind a lock-up shop in Ellistown, near Coalville.

Their family came along over the next 10 years, first Peter, then David, Roy and Joyce. Ken and Esther are also the proud grandparents of Simon, Matthew, Ramsey, Hannah, Edward and Kathy, and one great-grandson, Alexander, who is a real charmer and who Esther always referred to as “our little boy”.

Esther suffered many health problems over the last 30 years and was finally to the stage where no more could medically be done and, after 64 ½ years of happy marriage, Ken and Esther were parted in death.

Rest in perfect peace Esther.

By request, family flowers only. Donations are invited to the British Red Cross through this website or directly to A.W. Lymn, Wollaton.

My heartfelt condolences to Ken, Joyce, Pete, Dave and Roy. As Joyce's friend from 6 years old I have many treasured memories. Both Esther (and Ken) welcomed me into their home as one of the family, Esther was like a second mum to me. R.I.P.
