In the memory of our mother Esther Jepkemboi Too who served and loved the lord with all her heart. She brought joy to everyone she met and each room she entered always lit up. We are truly left with fond memories of our mother which will last us a lifetime.
The late Esther Too was born 1934 in Nandi County, Koisagat village. She was the third born child to the late Kibirgen Komurgor and the late Chemaiyo Taprongoei. She was a sister to ten siblings.
She got married to the late William Kiprotich Too in 1954. They were blessed with 10 children; Roselyn Melli, late Dorcas Cheboi, Joseph Rotich, Elizabeth Brickle, Samuel Rotich, Mary Melly, Emma Limo, Isaac Rotich, Sarah Shimaka and Irene Ehioba. She was a step mother to Kennedy Rotich, Priscah Too, Phillip Rotich, Stanley Rotich, Ronald Rotich, Dickson Rotich, Lily Chirchir, Yvonne Too, Shadrack Rotich, Christabel Too and Beatrice Too. She has 40 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
Esther got saved in the year 1960 and got baptized. She served and loved her God until her demise. She always went to church despite her failing health, loved to interact with the church congregation and believed in tithe, offering and supporting the pastor
Esther loved to garden, landscape and entertain. She loved to cook and made sure everyone who came to her house was fed; even when she would have visitors in the hospital she would ask that they get a cup of tea and for us to feed the nurses. Esther was kind and would go above and beyond to help you regardless if that meant that she would stay without. Regardless of her many sacrifices, God always provided, protected and shielded her in all situations. She enjoyed playing and interacting with her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
We thank God for the 83 ½ years he gave our mother. The past two years her health had deteriorated but she fought a good fight until the lord saw it best to take her home on 5/25/17 at University of Kansas Hospital. She was so peaceful and beautiful as she slipped away into the pearly gates to eternity into the hands of her maker. Esther leaves a legacy of love, giving, perseverance, determination, and noble character.
