Ester Jane Castellanos Cummings

Ester Jane Castellanos Cummings was born Sept. 25, 1948, and started her journey home on the wings of an eagle  Jan. 26, 2015. Ester was born to Marvin G. Isaacs and Ruth M. Herkshan.   As a child, she enjoyed going to Wiard Park, taking long walks, swimming, and spending time with her lifelong friend, Earla Boorman.   In the fall of 1961, Ester met her life partner, Mickey D. Cummings, and finally felt she had a family to call her own. On May 8 in the spring of 1966, Ester and Mickey married. Together, they had four daughters, Norma, Christy, Stacy and Tracy. Ester was a devoted and loving wife and mother. There was nothing more important to her than her family. She never missed her kids’ or grandkids’ recitals and 4-H, or school/sports functions, especially SOFTBALL.   During her life in Klamath County, she and Mickey achieved many things together. In 1973, they founded Cummings Roofing Inc., which continues to flourish. In 1989, they opened Silhouette Monogramming. Ester carried a big heart with a lot of room to love. There have been, and still are, many adopted children and grandchildren. Needless to say, she never knew a stranger. In 2011, Ester began her biggest fight, which was being on dialysis. Soon afterwards, she also started her bucket list and managed to accomplish the biggest share of it.   She enjoyed making people laugh, traveling, the ocean, car shows, and most importantly FOOTBALL. Her favorite teams were University of Oregon Ducks and the San Francisco 49ers. In 2014, she was able to attend the last game the 49ers played at Candlestick Park.   Ester was a woman of many hats. She was a wife, mother, grandma, great-grandma, sister, auntie, and friend. She fought a great fight and never gave up. Ester will be missed greatly, but will never be forgotten. Survivors include her husband, Mickey; daughters, Norma, Christy, Stacy and Tracy; grandchildren, Dj, Pete, Dallas, Courtney, Jezikah, William, and Emay; great-grandchildren, RayLynn, Cayden and Cassidy and soon to be Mit Dean; one brother; two sisters; numerous nieces; nephews; greats and great-greats; and dogs, Muck and Moccos.   Services will be at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015, at the Klamath County Fairgrounds, with burial at Eternal Hills Funeral Home and a potluck-style feed afterwards at the fairgrounds.
