Esther Charlotte May Sherman

Esther Charlotte May Sherman went home to meet her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, February 2nd, 2019.

Esther was born on May 11th, 1927 on a small farm in Ontario, Oregon to Blaine and Effie May. She was part of a large, loving family of 11 siblings who remained close-knit for their entire lives.

She was the first in her family to earn a college degree and enjoyed a rewarding teaching career both before and after she met and married the love of her life, Delmer Floyd Sherman.

Esther and Floyd had three children together. They loved their family and their community, serving faithfully together in the Assembly of God church until Floyd's death in 1981.

After her husband's death, Esther would go on to be the first female deacon in her church, a leadership role that she would fill for almost 20 years.

Esther's greatest legacy lies in her very real love for others. Her grace, wisdom, kindness and compassion were not just in her thoughts and words. They were part of her everyday decisions and conversations, impacting all of her relationships.

It is an understatement to say that many lives have been changed because they knew Esther Sherman.

Esther is survived by her children David and Tami of Boise, Carol and Gary of Castle Rock, WA, and Joanne and Todd of Nampa, her sister Vera Smith, as well as her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A memorial service for Esther will be held on Friday, February 8th at 2:00 at New Hope Nazarene Church, located at 8585 W Overland Rd, Boise, ID. There will be a celebration dinner at The Summit Church, 10375 Overland, Boise, ID, immediately following the service.

Any donations in her honor should be directed to New Hope Nazarene's Special Needs program.
