Esther was born Sunday, May 7, 1939 to the late Gabriel Garcia Cardena and Filomena Caraballa Cruz in Ponce, Puerto Rico. She loved sewing, knitting, church, praying the rosary, dancing, Philanthropist, and hanging out with her friends and going to the movies. One time at church, Esther left her purse in the sink and didn’t know that it was a motion sensor faucet which turned on and filled her purse with water. It soaked everything including her lipstick!! She and Jeannie spend the better part of an hour just trying to dry everything out. She was a member of St. Ann’s and helped with the bereavement committee. Esther was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend and will be deeply missed by us all.
