Esther was born September 17, 1937 in Denver, Colorado to Alfred and Lila Krogh of Commerce City. She is survived by her daughter Suzi Hedrick, son-in-law Ron Hedrick, and granddaughter Chelsea Hedrick. Esther was the youngest of four sisters, Shirley (Krogh) Leeper, Elaine (Krogh) Calvert, and Barbara (Krogh) White and is survived by her sister, Barbara.
Esther spent her childhood years in Commerce City and was active in the 4-H Club and Jobs Daughters, and loved every single animal on her family’s ranch. She was a cheerleader and homecoming queen at Adams City High School and graduated in 1955. Throughout her life, she was passionate about politics, cooking and canning, gardening, and her masonic organizations, which included the Social Order of The Beauceant and the Eastern Star. Yet, her greatest love was for sports. She was Denver sports teams’ biggest fan and loved her Rockies, Broncos, and Nuggets! A major highlight from Esther’s life was from 1998 to 1999, where she served as the Supreme Worthy President of the Social Order of The Beauceant, traveling to all of the assemblies and visiting her Beauceant sisters throughout the country.
The family is deeply grateful for the outpouring of love, prayers, and support from all who knew her. She truly was the best mom and grandma in the world and will be greatly missed by her many friends and family.
