Esther Martha Rasmussen 1924 - 2017 Celebration of Life September 16th

Arnold, CA...All who knew her are invited to a Celebration of Life will held in honor of Esther M. Rasmussen on Saturday, September 16, 1:00 – 3:00 pm at Independence Hall Community Center, 1445 Blagen Road, Arnold, CA 95223. In lieu of flowers, please bring your fondest memories of Esther and a dessert in honor of her love of sweets. Light hors d’oeuvres will be served. Esther Martha Rasmussen passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family May 12, 2017 at the age of 92.




She is survived by her daughters, Geraldine Griffith and Marjorie Ortega; son, Chris Rasmussen, granddaughter Debbie Ortega, great-grandchildren Kellen and Chloe Ortega and extended family Elaine Rasmussen, Roy Ortega and Sergio Quinones. Esther is predeceased by her husband Oliver Bullard Rasmussen, daughter Sue Rasmussen and son Jimmy Rasmussen.

Esther was born in 1924 to John J. Siegrist and Elizabeth Parker Siegrist in Erdenheim, Pennsylvania. She worked for Vicks Cough Drop Company when she met future husband Oliver during a vacation in New Jersey in 1944. After a short courtship, the two were engaged and thus began Esther’s adventures as a naval wife and mother, much of which was chronicled in a biography entitled “Chippewa Chief in WWII: The story of Oliver B. Rasmussen” written by author and fellow navy man Don Norton.

Following the war, Esther’s growing family moved to Hayward, CA. In 1979, Oliver retired and they relocated to Arnold, CA. After Oliver’s death, Esther became an avid world traveler (she’d visited over 50 countries) and was active in many volunteer organizations, including the Ebbetts Pass Republicans. She was a fantastic cook and enjoyed entertaining in the home she designed and built. Esther very much loved the mountains, and hiked among them daily. She lived in Calaveras County for over 25 years.

In 2004, Esther moved to Escondido, CA. She lived next door to her granddaughter, Debbie and her great-grandchildren, whom she absolutely adored.

Esther’s family and friends will miss her sense of humor, her intelligent, passionate conversations, her generous nature and her wily Scrabble-playing ability. Her family is planning a celebration of her life near the time of her birthday in September 2017. Memorials in her honor may be sent to The National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana, American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR) or an organization of your choice that is dedicated to improving quality of life for the aging.

Having lived in Fly-In-Acres many year's ago, I met Esther and her family! I had lost track of them over the year's , was surprised to see that Esther was still with us! She endured many hardships, but always found a way to move on! She was a strong Lady! Tom Christian
