Esther Amalia (Dobler) Weisser was born on Monday, August 9, 1926, on the family farm in Hutchinson County near Tripp to Edward and Emilia (Bietz) Dobler.  She attended country grade school and one year of high school in Tripp. She was baptized in Dennewitz Lutheran Church by Rev. Goeken and confirmed after due instruction by Rev. J. Schmitt in Dennewitz Church.  She married Leo Weisser on January 19, 1947 in Dennewitz Church by Rev. J. Schmitt. They farmed four miles east and three miles north of Tripp until 1975. After Leo was disabled, they moved into Tripp.  Esther worked various jobs including  nurse’s aide, receptionist at a chiropractor’s office, a clerk at Friederich’s Grocery and Dairy Mart, cut meat at Spomer’s Locker, and later worked at Raven’s in Parkston for 13 years, from which she retired.  She moved to Mitchell, where she worked at the Corn Palace Motel for 9 years as a desk clerk.  Esther also volunteered at L.B. Williams Elementary School. Esther passed away on Saturday, January 21, 2012 at Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls at the age of 85 years, 5 months and 12 days.
Esther is survived by four children: Lynnetta (Al) Dinehart of Rapid City, Robert (Kathy) Weisser of Sioux Falls, Kay (David) Farrar of Gayville and Jane (Ron) Dahme of Mitchell; six grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren; two sisters, and numerous nieces and nephews.
