She is a graduate of East Hartford High School, Class of 1962.

Esther made a career serving as a Clerk in the Glastonbury Probate Court, retiring in 2008. She was a member of St. Margaret Mary Church in South Windsor. Her greatest joy was being "Grandma Buff" to her six beloved grandchildren.

Esther was predeceased by her brother, Clark Buffington. She also leaves many extended family members and countless friends who she considered family.
