Esther Lillian (Simpson) Hubbard, 78, of New Holland, passed away on Monday, June 1, 2020, at Lancaster General Hospital-Penn Medicine.

Esther was a sweet and godly woman who devoted her life to loving the Lord Jesus Christ, and to loving her family. Her continual gratitude, gracious listening, words of counsel and encouragement, and tireless prayers have been an immeasurable gift to her family and friends. She enjoyed reading, puzzles, and playing hymns on her piano. Esther volunteered at Chester County Women’s Services in Kennett Square. With eagerness, her family arises and calls her blessed.
In addition to her husband, Esther is survived by a son, Mark W., husband of Yvonne L. (Martin) Hubbard of Lancaster, two daughters, Laurie A., wife of Steven C.
