Esther Lavern Ellis, 94, of Amarillo, TX died November 2, 2020 after a short illness.
She was born Dec. 8, 1925 to Earl John Ellis and Lola May Thomas Ellis at their home in Stevens County.
She worked for many years as a nurse and a home healthcare nurse. In the early 1950’s, she was terminally ill with tuberculosis but was healed by God in a tent meeting conducted by Oral Roberts. Her greatest joy was giving her testimony of the healing and singing spiritual songs with her long-time best friend, Melba.

She was preceded in death by two husbands, Arthur Taylor and Roger Coker; her parents; grandson, Ryan Rimple; sisters, Lilian Massey and Ella Pennington; and brothers, Eldon Ellis and Harold Ellis.
A Graveside Memorial Service will be held at 1:30pm on Friday, September 10, 2021 at the Liberal City Cemetery with Pastor Rex Petty officiating.
