Obituary

Cuba City, Wisconsin

Esther K. Egan, 87, of Cuba City, Wisconsin, died Wednesday, April 1, 2020, at Epione Pavilion in Cuba City, Wisconsin. Private graveside services will be held at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Cuba City with Pastor Gus Barnes officiating. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Casey Funeral Home & Cremation Services of Cuba City is assisting the family.

Esther was born on December 8, 1932, in Cuba City, Wisconsin, the daughter of Dewey and Ina (Leggett) Heil. She married Glen A. Egan on June 3, 1950. He preceded her in death on August 8, 2015. Together, they farmed in Cuba City. Esther was also a school bus driver for 37 years.

Esther was a member of Faith Lutheran Church since 1950 and a member of Eastern Star. She enjoyed quilting, ceramics, needlepoint, baking, dancing, and flower and vegetable gardening. Esther was a great party planner and a 4-H leader for 30 years. Esther and Glen enjoyed spending time at Lake Joy and CAV Park in Zephyrhills, Florida.

She loved her entire family, her husband, her children, grandchildren, her godchildren and great-grandchildren deeply. Her kindness, enthusiasm and commitment to her kids was always evident. She also loved her friends like family - as long as she could tell you what she thought. She had a heart as big as blackberry pie, and a backbone as tough as nails. As her grandchildren recall: A lot could be learned from a women like Grandma, still the best cook we’ve ever met, pleasuring tummies all over Grant County. There was always room for one more at her kitchen table.

The Egan home was a boarding house of sorts to uncles, aunts, cousins and some kin we really never knew. The East Bedroom was intended for guests. Some came for fun, others for rural life “structure”. They would stay a week, a summer, and even a couple for a year, including a couple from Costa Rica, Eluid (Louie) Calderon Badilla, who always remained a big part of her life. Many if not all returned to the Egan farm holding Glen and Esther dear to their hearts forever.

Forever a gamer, Esther loved competition and games – Euchre, Crazy Clubs, Rummy, Poker, or more. Homemade game boards adorned the dining room. Esther could not clear her meals quick enough to get the games started. Card game tourneys in Florida, or horseshoes at Lake Joy were followed by S’Mores.

Survivors include her children, Kim (Kim Wisdom) Egan, Verona, and Karla Egan-Dailey, Platteville; a sister, Shirley (Redfern) Puls, Cuba City; three grandchildren, Benjamin (Chrissy) Egan, and Jesse (fianceé Katie Schlaikowski) Egan, both of Seattle, WA, and Jacob (fianceé Mariah Hargrafen) Dailey, Hartford, WI; and three great-grandchildren, Anora, Dexter, and Ethan Egan.

She was also preceded in death by her parents; a son, Terry Egan; two infant children; and three sisters, Ruth Hilvers, Doris Kirk, and Norma Kunkel.

Condolences may be sent to the family at 1604 Airport Rd., Platteville, WI, 53818.

Aunt Esther was definitely a great cook and also provided a summer home to my brother and I. I know that hard work was in her blood and farm life was certainly not without toils. Thank you Esther for great memories and fun times. I know you will be missed by many and I know you will be joined by loved ones at the "Pearlie Gates"

I’ll miss Grandma Egan. She was my Godmother, and so special to a lot of people. The Egan family was small, and that brought us together in a way most families envy.

My fondest childhood memories came from Lake Joy. Waking up early catch crawdads and go fishing. Touring around on the paddle boat, swimming all day, doing the Macarena, and riding out the sunset in their pontoon boat. Then doing it all over again the next day.

At their trailer in Zephyrhills, Florida I remember making fresh squeezed orange juice picked from the trees in their backyard. Afterwards, the grandkids riding three-wheelers around the neighborhood, and playing shuffleboard at the community center. Grandma and Grandpa’s friends would all come over, or stop and say “Hi”, almost every day. My grandparents were the cool kids in town, wherever they went they had a network of friends and family.

Grandma was generous, and selfless. She loved feeding others. When we all sat down for dinner, Grandma refused to take a seat at the table. She would continue serving, making sure everybody had what they need. Even after she had been slaving over a meal all day. Grandma is still the best cook I've ever met. Heart as big as blackberry pie, and a backbone as tough as nails.

Grandma always had my favorite white-chocolate pretzels ready when I came to visit. I remember making root-beer floats. Watching her carve the turkey. Teaching me the pride of hard work, while owning all the kids in game of Euchre. I remember going through closets with my cousin searching for Christmas gifts, shaking them, and trying to guess what great gifts we were getting. I remember getting scolded, calling me different names like “Jacob… Benjamin… Jesse… damnit!”. Grandma was an edgy, spit-fired lady who spoke her mind. I admired that. She let me drink my first wine-cooler, and watch cartoons I wasn’t allowed to watch at home. Grandma was a hoot. I will always remember her laugh. I remember her taking out dentures and scaring us kids, one of many pranks she would play on us. I remember being tucked in at night with her handmade quilts. At the end of the day she was kind, gentle, and lived caring for others.

Grandma Egan was the last of my Grandparents to go, and it’s hard to say goodbye. But she joins a crowd of friends and family in the sky that have been waiting for her. I hope she remembered to bring pie and a deck of cards. I love you, Grandma.
