Esther Christine Ramsay (nee Dahl), after a rich and full life, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 6, 2007 at the age of 95 years.
Esther lived her life with strength, determination and love. She was born in Claresholm, AB and moved to Calgary and married Levitt in 1933. Esther leaves her family with memories of her many road trips throughout North America, motorcycle adventures in Alberta, her love of gardening, dancing with Levitt and in later years at the Kerby Centre, and her independent spirit.
