Esther Constance Gustafson went to be with her Lord and Savior on May 8, 2016, at the age of 86.
She was the daughter of the late Esther A. Benson and Rev. William F. Belding, who was a Salvation Army minister.
She was born in Franklin, Pa., and lived in the Brockway area for most of her life. When she was 14 years old, she felt the need to accept Jesus as her Savior and continued to live for Him daily.
She and her husband are charter members of the Christian & Missionary Alliance Church where they attended for fifty-five years. Esther loved music and was a member of the church choir for many years. She made it a mission in life to crochet individual afghans for each of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She worked for many years to help build a library for the Christian & Missionary Alliance Church in Brockway and was interested in researching the family's genealogy.
She was married to Everett William Gustafson and is survived by her husband and daughters, Susan Waldorf of Tiger, Ga., and Cheryl (Jim) Brown of Brockway; and a brother, William G. Belding of Florida. She and Everett have nine grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren.
A son, David John Gustafson, preceded her in death.
