She was preceded in death by her parents; brother Alphonse Janyssek, and sister Eleanor Hargis.
Before moving to Paso Robles, Calif., in 1968 with her former husband, Lt. Col. George Olsen, Ret., Esther was a member of several officers' wives' clubs.
She was also a Girl Scout leader and loved to host get-togethers for family and friends. She had a remarkable talent for sewing and was an excellent homemaker. Esther's warmth and ready laughter will be deeply missed.
Esther is survived by four children, Angela Olsen of Paso Robles, Calif.; Georgia Olsen Maberry and husband, Todd, of Eureka Springs; Michael Peters and wife, Prudi, of Kerrville, Texas; Suzette White and husband, Stuart, of Joshua Tree, Calif.; one sister, Irene Barker of Marshall, Texas; five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at a later date in Yorktown, Texas.
