They had a meager childhood filled with love and joy of family, as they moved around a lot they came across aid from our grandfathers family from time to time.

Esther received a certificate of completion from San Diego High School and started working her first job as an auto detailer. Shortly after she met Cleveland Phillip and they would marry soon thereafter. They had three children, Freddie, James, and Shontel Phillip.

Esther loved life and all that it had to offer. Some things she loved most were family and friends. She was always willing to help those in need. Esther had a long career at UCSD Medical Center where she started out on a work program as a HA1 and worked her way up to being one of the top medical clerks learning all that she could to better the lives of those around her.
