Esther Linnea Ceccato

Esther Ceccato was born March 12th, 1931 to Swedish immigrants Gustav Harald and Anna Helgerson in Swansea MA. The youngest of five children and the only girl, she grew up tough.
Mom loved her brothers and remained close to them throughout her life. Esther spent the majority of her adult life living in Northern California, first in Shasta and later in Siskiyou Counties. For the past year and a half, she resided in Lassen County.

Esther was a capable, generous-hearted and spunky woman who loved the outdoors. She was equally in her glory showing hospitality to guests or in the woods stalking deer. For her, the only thing better than hunting was eating venison and during her lifetime, she put 26 of them in her freezer. Mom also loved camping, fishing and working outside. Her home was open to others and over the years she fed many hungry college students, missionaries, friends from church, neighbors, and family. Esther worked in a number of jobs over the years but her main career was being a homemaker. Her house was a central place for her family. Esther was a Christian and served her Lord where she could, notably as a church musician for many years.

Esther was preceded in death by her husbands Daniel Wetmore, and Richard Ceccato. She is survived by her daughters Bonnie (Hubert) Garland of Palo Cedro, CA, Cindy (Tony) Loubet of Janesville, CA, Amy Hill of Weed, CA; grandchildren Daniel and Jonathan Garland, Jeremiah and Josh Loubet, Rachel Kozloski, Sherry Hill, Amber Cheney, Daniel Hill, 21 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at Standish Bible Church this Saturday (Oct 28th) at 10:00. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Standish Bible Church for the AWANA ministry.

Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
