Esther was predeceased by her parents; her husband, Charles Gennetta; his brothers, Ben and Pete Castellucci; and her granddaughter, Jenna Gennetta.

She was especially proud of her grandchildren and relished her time with them. She will be deeply missed. Esther rarely complained and was always grateful. She was the first full-time secretary at the Mount Carmel Credit Union and was also employed at St. Mary-Corwin Hospital and Minnequa Bank. Esther loved her work in adoption placements for Catholic charities and was still in contact with many of her parents and foster children, even after many years. Esther was secretary of education in School District 60 and retired in 1981. She was voted Colt of the Month by South High School students in 1969. Esther attended Pueblo Christian Center. The family would like to thank their friends at the Pueblo Regent and their many caregivers. Special thanks to the staff at Sangre de Cristo Hospice, Dr. Rendler and Ron at the Broadway Pharmacy. Esther loved this poem and requested that it be read upon her death: I am at home in paradise dear ones; Oh, so happy and so bright! There is perfect joy and beauty in this eternal light. All the pain and sorrow is over. Each past agitated throw; I am now at peace forever, finally safe in paradise. Grieve for a moment if you have to, then let your grief be comforted by trust. It is only for a while that we have to go our separate ways, so bless the memories in your heart. There will be a funeral service at 2 p.m. on December 13 at Roselawn. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Esther’s memory at the Pueblo Christian Center or Hospice Sangre de Cristo. Online condolences can be presented at
