Our condolences to the entire extended Gall-Magstadt family. Esther became a good friend while working at my parents grocery store. Also knew Al at the Scotland Creamery for many years as a kid. Both were wonderful people. Sorry for delay but just learned of Esther's passing. Visited Esther in 2017 while in Scotland. Del and Cheri Gran

Esther was such a dear sweet lady. I remember her well when she worked at Bell Drug. She was truly a gift to that business. Remembering your dear mother.
