Flannery, Esther - Seattle  
Esther Ellen Flannery, of Seattle, Wash., originally of West Pittston and later of Kingston, passed away March 24, 2015 after a brief illness. Esther was born April 2, 1933 in Pittston Hospital to Frank J. and Esther Brennan Flannery. She graduated from Wyoming Seminary, Georgetown Visitation Junior College and Misericordia University, and received her master's in teaching from Temple University. Esther had a love of teaching and learning; she taught at Dallas Senior High School from 1975 to 1982 and then joined the faculty at Luzerne County Community College from 1982 until her retirement in 1998. In her retirement, she found new purpose in a variety of civic issues, including work at the Catherine McAuley Center and on John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign. Esther is survived by her son, Andrew, his wife, Jen, and their children, Anja and Soren. In 2008, she took a leap of faith, sold her home in Kingston and moved far west, to Seattle, to be with her family. It was a decision she didn't regret, as it was the beginning of a totally new phase of her life. She threw herself into becoming a Seattleite, making many new friends along the way. Having never been a football fan for the previous 75 years of her life, she became a diehard Seahawks fan, remarking on the team's loss in the most recent Super Bowl the following day by bemoaning, "They had Marshawn Lynch! Why didn't they rush?" Throughout her life, Esther stitched beautiful needlepoint works, a talent she learned from her mother and later passed along to her daughter-in-law. From the piano bench, done when she was a girl, to many Christmas ornaments and framed pieces, Esther's works were and are beautiful. In her later years in Seattle, she also enjoyed entering her works into art exhibitions. Esther was predeceased by her parents, brothers, John and Frank, a sister, Helen, and first cousin, Nick. Her dearest friend since early childhood, Helen Rutledge, also predeceases her; their 75-year relationship stands as a hallmark for what a true and unequivocal friendship should be. A celebration of Esther's life will begin Monday, April 6, with visitation from 4 to 7 p.m. at McLaughlin's, 142 S. Washington St., Wilkes-Barre and continue with a Funeral Mass on Tuesday, April 7, at 9:30 a.m. in The Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, 339 N. Maple Ave., Kingston. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Esther's dearest charity, St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105, or Memories and condolences may be shared with Esther's family at .
