Esther SALAZAR Obituary
SALAZAR, Esther Esther Salazar, wife of Gilbert Salazar, daughter of Bruna Gutierrez, and sister of Aurora, Manuel, and Slim, all deceased, was born August 23, 1924 in Glenmora, Louisiana. She passed away peacefully in her sleep on November 4, 2017 in Austin, Texas. She was 93 years old. She is survived by her daughter Emily in Austin, her cousin Teresa Acosta in Mexico, her sister-in-law Jenet Melton, her brother-in-law Herman Salazar, many "favorite" nieces and nephews, and the best friends a person could ever have. Esther lived most of her life in Houston and spent her last 20 years living with her daughter in Austin. She is a member of St. Theresa Catholic Church. Esther didn't have a formal education, but she taught herself to read and write. Books were her companion and bookstores were her favorite shopping destination. When she received an iPad as a gift, it took her no time to upload a dozen books. Esther traveled to Europe, Canada, and all over the U.S., but being "home" with family was her greatest pleasure: listening to her husband play guitar or her daughter play piano, or snuggling with her "grand-kitty" Huckleberry or talking on the phone with family and friends. That was what a happy life meant to Esther. Her smile and her playfulness will always be remembered. Mumsy, thank you for sharing your 93 years with all of us.
