Esther Blotzer, age 97, of Munhall, formerly of Duquesne, passed away on Sunday, October 3, 2021.
In her younger years, Esther was an avid spectator at all of her grandchildren’s sporting events. At 97, she was still enjoying playing cards, especially Euchre, and the game of dominoes. She was a die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan and never missed an episode of Sean Hannity. Her favorite pastime was shopping and she also enjoyed cooking and baking. Her homemade bread was everyone’s favorite. She also did clerical work at the Duquesne Senior Citizens Center for many years.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Mary and Herman Kress, her husband, James Blotzer, sisters, Pearl and Edith and a brother, Bill, her sons-in-law, Charles Teichart (who lovingly dubbed her Queen Mother) and James Steiner and her granddaughter Jillann Tockstein.
