Esther Ruth Deatherage of Stevinson passed peacefully in her sleep after a long battle with lung cancer. She is survived by her four children David Means of Turlock, Dan Cox of Stevinson, Donna (Shannon) Williams of Keyes, and Doris Cargill of Turlock, six grandchildren DJ Costa, Devan Anderson, Tenisha Williams, Shannon Williams, John Means, and Diane Castro, ten great- grandchildren Brendan Faria, DJ Costa Jr., Electra Costa, JoJo Anderson, Charlee Rose Anderson, Ryan Simmons, Shanna Williams, Lily Williams, Emma Dunham, and Zoey Esther-Ruth Dunham. She is also survived by three sisters Cynthia Tidmore of Riverside, Edna Brock of Manteca, and Louise Cargill of Manteca.
She worked full time as a weigh master for Bronco Winery in Ceres for almost 20 years until she became too weak to drive in October 2011. She retired from Sharpe Army Depot in French Camp after 35 years as a clerk typist. She was a single mom who did her best, far beyond our hopes. She loved her family and left a legacy of love. We will miss her greatly.
