The third child of the late Anthony John Ferretti, Sr. and Victorine Newell Ferretti Rozier, dear sister of the late Louise Ferretti Klumpp and the late Deacon Anthony “Tony” John Ferretti, Jr., and aunt to her beloved nephews Joseph and John Klumpp. Esther was born and raised in the French Quarter with her young life steeped in Catholic Italian traditions.

Independent from a young age, she worked at Escalante’s, Bryce Dressel Distributors and was the retired owner of Fisherman’s Seafood House. Brenda is grateful to the many friends and family who kept Esther wonderfully engaged while watching LSU and Saints games over the years, especially Jeanie Dragon, Blair and Eve Wolfe, Sara Woodin and Madison Wulff, along with Peter Sferidis and his endless birthday celebrations for her.
