Born & raised in Chelsea, she was a 1959 alumna of St. Rose Catholic High School for Girls of Chelsea–and we might add, mighty proud of that accomplishment.

The family had a summer residence in Dennisport, where their family of five children, nine
grandchildren, aunts, uncles, cousins et aliae and of course the Princess 0livia & the Prince Luke, thrived. In 1967, Esther & her husband, Stephen opened DeKel-Lasota Insurance Agency on Broadway, Revere. Stephen died in 1993 & Esther & her sons maintained the business to 1997. Esther was a tennis enthusiast, and member of the former Colonial Tennis Club of Lynnfield, the Mid-Cape Racquet Club & the Locario Tennis Club in West Harwich, Ma. As a teenager, Esther developed an athletic ability as a member of the former, St. Rose Drum & Bugle Corps of Chelsea. Above & beyond her passion for tennis, was her role as “Super MOM & Grandma”.

    Our deepest sympathies to Esther’s family. She often told me that she prayed for Mike and me every day, which I sincerely believe. That’s the kind of selfless person that Esther was. May her spirit live on. We feel blessed to have known her.

    I have known Esther since we were tennis opponents on the North Shore, and then again, when we were here on Cape Cod. Her laidback personality was a magnet to all who knew her, as well as her compassion for others. All of us here will miss her.
    My sincerest condolences to her family.

    Our deepest sympathies to Esther’s family. She had a special spirit that was contagious. She made everything about having fun and I have so enjoyed our years together on the courts at Locarios. That’s not to say she didn’t enjoy winning as well! I will miss her very much.
