Esther Marie Giacomini was born July 13, 1920, to John and Hazel Frese in Haxtun, Colorado. The family moved to Buckingham, Colorado where they farmed, and then Crook where she attended school, graduating in 1934.

In 1938, Esther married Jerry Pace, with whom she had three children: James, John, and Laura. They moved a lot during their marriage, living in Chapel and Oshkosh Nebraska, and Colorado Springs, Boulder, and Sterling Colorado.

She divorced Jerry, and later married Marion Applegate. They lived in Sterling for several years until their divorce. In her later years, she married Clarence Giacomini who lived on a farm north of Sterling.

During her lifetime Esther worked several jobs including a law firm in Colorado Springs, Dentist and Doctor offices, the hospital, retail stores, and ended working at Great Western Sugar factory in Sterling, Colorado.

She was affiliated with the Berea Fundamental Church in Sterling. During this time, she traveled as a missionary, building churches and personages in numerous locations, including Haiti, Alaska, New Mexico, Indiana, Kentucky, and an Indian reservation in South Dakota.

A few years after Clarence died, she moved to Sacramento, California to live near her daughter and grandchildren, making several visits to her sons in Wyoming during the summer. In 2016 she moved to live with son John in Lovell, Wyoming.

She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers, a sister, grandsons, and niece Norma.

She is survived by her children and their spouses: James (Martha), John, and Laura (Tony); and her niece Martha (Darold); her stepfamily Stephanie, Michael, John, and Patrick Giacomini; 9 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren, and 13 great-great grandchildren.

Her interment will be in the Haxtun, Colorado Cemetery.
