Ester Deochoa’s sunrise was on November 16th, 1928 and sunset on Friday, September 16th, 2022. Ester came to the United States from El Salvador in 1985 where she reunited with her daughter Consuelo, son-in-law Rosaly Sr. and grandchildren Rosaly Jr. and Angel. Through her early years in Long Branch, she worked briefly at a laundry mat in uptown Long Branch. Shortly after she became a full-time babysitter for her grandchildren Junior and Angel.
Ester loved flowers and had a passion for planting, grooming and watering them in the early hours of the morning spring and summer during blooming season. She also loved weekend outings with her family and attending garage sales. Ester loved spending quality time talking with her many family members and friends whom would come from near and far just to have deep conversations, or laugh as she reminisced about her family back in beloved El Salvador.
Ester is survived by her eldest son Napoleon Fuentes, Hector Rene Fuentes Barahona, Consuelo Borrero, Mauricio Ochoa, and Clara Ochoa.
