Esther Marie McKinnon was born on November 20, 1926 to her loving mother Willie Mae McKinnon. She worked in Food Services at Union Pines High School and housekeeping with the Palomino Hotel.
Esther was a kind soul who cared deeply for her family and would always make the point to talk about her beautiful grandchildren. She especially enjoyed introducing her family members to the staff and residents of Magnolia Gardens.
