Esther Helen Thompson came into this world on July 14, 1948 in New Mexico and got her angel wings on February 14, 2022 at Wyoming Medical Center in Casper, WY. She married the love of her life, Virgil Wayne Thompson on August 15, 1970 in Greeley, Colorado. Together they had 3 sons.
Esther loved to share her faith by teaching rosary classes and sending her rosaries all over the world. She also spent her time raising boys, gardening and tending to her Virgin Mary statues in her yard. She always had a smile on her face and was known for her funny names for things. She often ended a phone call with, “Okay, bye,” and hanging up mid sentence, which was as good as “I love you.”
She is survived by husband Wayne, sons David (Janelle) and Christopher Thompson, sister Christina (Charles) Lawson and many extended family members. She is preceded in death by parents Floyd and Lila Ortiz, son Anthony Thompson and siblings Henry Ortiz, Bertha Moreno, Floyd Ortiz Jr. and Ray Ortiz.
