Esther Louise Paul
Eclectic is a word that was invented for Esther. Humble beginnings and fierce maternal instincts molded a grateful community member who stepped in when called upon.
Esther exited this existence after a whirlwind life of enjoying what was presented. Wined and dined by royalty in Monaco, Girl Scout and 4-H leader, Queen of Eastern Star, hot air ballooning over Thailand, motorcycling in Sturgis, dog sledding near the Bering Sea. The lack of degrees did not slow her growth and enthusiasm for education. Her proudest bragging rights were of producing two award winning elementary teachers, a son and daughter.
Esther showed up in Yachats during the Mushroom Festival nine years ago and found her home. She volunteered with many groups, but especially enjoyed numerous activities with the Yachats Lions Club and the Yachats Ladies Club. Yachats was the perfect final curtain call for her time on earth.
