Esther N. Brillhart

Aug 17, 1928 - Dec 8, 2016


Born in Manchester, South Dakota on August 17, 1928. Passed away on December 8, 2016. Esther married Roy Bailey and had two children, Michael and Sharon. They moved to Fair Oaks where they joined the Rancheros square dancing club. Roy died suddenly in 1962 and in 1963 she married Daryl Brillhart, a widower who was also in the Rancheros. Daryl had 3 children: Dennis, David and Danette. Esther became their mom and was loved as such. She and Daryl traveled throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada. In 2012 Daryl died just short of their 50th wedding anniversary. After Daryl’s death, Esther’s sister Barbara asked her to go on a cruise along with two friends. That was the first of many they took together, going to Hawaii, Mexico, the Bahamas, through the Panama Canal, and more. She was so proud of having visited all 50 states. She loved dancing, playing cards and travel. Besides her children and sister Barbara, she is survived by four grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and brothers Don and Jack Pontious. She was a loving wife and a wonderful mom who was always ready for fun. She left us doing what she loved– line dancing at the Hart Senior Center. Goodbye Mom, we love you so much. Thank you for everything. Graveside service to take place at 11:00am, December 28th at East Lawn Sierra Hills Memorial Park, 5757 Greenback Lane. – See more at:
