Esther V. Redford

January 21, 1939 — April 13, 2022

Esther V. Redford
83, of Plainfield, passed away on April 13, 2022 at her home. Esther was born on January 21, 1939 in Indianapolis, Indiana to the late Clyde M. Steinbrook and Anna M. (Tapp) Steinbrook.

Esther worked as an elevator operator for the Hendricks County Courthouse and later became the first female letter carrier for the Plainfield Post Office for many years, before retiring in 1999. She enjoyed gardening, reading, dogs, a good cup of coffee with her cigarettes. She was a strong independent lady, who spoke her mind, and who could be stubborn from time to time. However, she will be remembered for her great sense of humor as well as her kind and caring heart.

She is survived by her daughter Anna Ewbank; sisters Rosetta, Ramona, Marcella, Wanetta; 3 grandchildren Miranda Pinnick, Ashley Sutton, John Sutton, and 6 great grandchildren, who will miss her dearly.

No formal services are planned at this time.
