~~Ester Ruth Abbe


Esther Ruth Abbe of Texas City, TX entered the arms of her heavenly Father, Sunday September 10, 2017.  Esther Ruth will be singing with the angels and worshipping Jesus in heaven just as she did here on earth.  She raised her family and the many children that she kept in her home to love Jesus, to live "right" and how to tie their shoes.  Anyone who know Mrs. Abbe knew that her favorite color was purple.
