Esther Jean Andrews, 94, peacefully passed away on October 10th, 2023. She was born in Johnson City, NY as the first child and a 1928 Christmas day gift to her parents, Harry J. and Emma J. (Stanek) Pratt.
Esther was predeceased by her husband, Harold E. Andrews; brother, Ernest E. Pratt; and sister, Mary A. Spangenburg. She is survived by her brother Arthur G. Pratt, as well as her children and their spouses: Arthur J. (Janet) Andrews, Debra E. (Gary) Winchell, and David B. (Cheri) Andrews along with three grandchildren, Edward Andrews, Cynthia (Richard) LaFlam, Kevin Winchell and three great-grandchildren, Derek LaFlam, Trevor LaFlam, and Ellery Winchell.
During her school years, Esther was a country girl with a close hard working farm family on Twining Road. She graduated from JC High School in 1947 and married on September 27th of that year. She worked for short periods at Ansco, Fair Play Candy, and Singer Link. She settled in West Windsor as a caring wife for 57 years and a devoted mother and grandmother who dedicated her life to raising and supporting her children in all aspects of their lives.
Esther lived a life without large comforts, but she always worked hard to provide all she could to those around her. She greatly appreciated the simple things, like the joy of conversation while sharing a meal with family and friends. Esther always had a smile, a positive attitude, and a strong desire to care for those less fortunate. Her energy never faded when helping others. She saw the good in everyone and they loved her for it. Her kindness, grace, and generosity were acknowledged by everyone she encountered. She was a wonderful cook and seamstress who enjoyed gardening and good chocolate. Many years her excellent shot took the first whitetail during hunting season. Above all, she loved spending time with family.
A constant throughout her life was her involvement in churches, where she made friends and continued to study the Word of God to learn how to better serve Him. Family, God, and her Christian faith were very important to her. This was demonstrated every day through her every action.
Honor her lifetime of service to others and value-oriented faithful life with a small farewell prayer. Consider a donation by giving a little extra this week to your local church while thinking of her. Esther would be pleased.
Family will receive friends at 11 AM prior to an 11:30 AM memorial service on October 20, 2023 at Free Methodist Church, 103 Main St, Windsor. All are welcome to join the family to celebrate Esther’s life with a meal at the Golden Oak, 679 NY-79, Windsor following the service. The family will have a private burial at the East Maine Cemetery. Arrangements entrusted to SAVAGE-DeMarco Funeral Service. Online condolences may be expressed at www.SavageFS.com.
