KATZ,Estelle (Esther)

Esther was an unforgettable force of nature with a boundless pot of soup and indomitable will.

Esther is survived by her children,
Linda Schwarz,
Barry (Trinita) Katz, and
Howard (Alisa) Katz;
Dini (Andrew Bernstein),
and Kayla Schwartz;

and stepdaughter Paula King;
as well as sister-in-law Sylvia Lefton,
many nieces, nephews and cousins and countless friends and admirers.
