Obituary Notices and Memorials


PETERSON, Esther G. Age 79, lost her battle with cancer after a long courageous fight. She passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones November 26, 2010. She was the devoted wife of Rev. Joseph W. Peterson of New Hope Baptist Church who preceded her in death in 2004. Originally from Louisiana, her family moved to Los Angeles where she married Willie Sam Goldston Sr., and had 5 children. After being widowed at an early age, she went back to school and earned a certificate in Modiste, allowing her to make a living pursuing her passion for clothing design. Esther was a founding member of St. Augustine Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles and considered it her home church to the end. She lived the last 30 years in Lancaster where as a pastor's wife she inspired and mentored many, young and old. All who knew her were proud to be called 'Son' or 'Daughter' by her. She is survived by her four children: Larry Goldston, Debora E. Abraham, Loretta G. Horns, Ronald E. Goldston; four grandchildren: Monica Peters, Aronda Martin, Jason Horns, Jessie Horns; four great-grandchildren, two brothers and one sister. Her feisty spirit and go-getter attitude will be sorely missed.
