ESTHER KANSTROOM KATZMAN was born January 6, 1913 in Brooklyn, NY and died April 15, 1982 (the 8th day of Passover) in Orange, CA at age 69.

SPOUSE: She married Murray Katzman on November 28, 1934, and they had two daughters: Thea and Marilyn.

In 1974, Murray and Esther moved to CA, where Murray died in 1980 at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, CA. Shortly thereafter, Esther became a volunteer there. She worked over 800 hours and was laid to rest in her volunteer uniform. Those who knew her will remember her sense of humor and her dedication to her family and her volunteer work.

She is survived by her daughters Thea Bussell and Marilyn Pett; her son-in-law Dr. Richard Bussell; two brothers Dave (of Brooklyn) and George (of FL); and grandchildren Allen, Clifford, Shari, Deborah and Kevin.

Esther and Murray enjoyed 45 years of marriage. They are buried at Hillside Memorial Park, Culver City, Los Angeles County, CA.

"A Tribute to Esther Katzman"

What does Mother mean to me?
My best friend is what she be.
She gave all her love to her
children and spouse.
All her love went into our house.

Half of her died when Daddy went away.
Rest in peace is what I pray.
She was the best friend that I ever had.
To have her no more, leaves me sad.
But fond memories shall linger
the rest of my days
Because in my heart she always stays.

Since Daddy's gone, you tried your best.
You join him now - I'm sure you'll rest.
I say it to you now, and I've said it before,
"You made my life happy! I can ask for no more".

(A tribute to Esther by her daughter Thea)
