Obituary for Esther Bielefield Waller

Esther Marian (Bielefield) Waller, 98, of Middletown, was born March 15, 1919 in Middletown and went home to her Lord and loving husband, Bill on Tuesday, July 25, 2017. At the time of her passing, she was a resident of Heritage Commons, with her devoted aide and companion, Ann Marie Walker.

Esther was the daughter of the late Annie (Ehlers) and F.J. Bielefield (former Mayor of Middletown) and the youngest of seven children, Ruth, Hazel, Ann, Arthur, Herman and Walter.

Esther grew up and spent her entire life living in Middletown, a city she loved. She attended local schools and upon graduating attended Middletown Business College, leaving early to seek employment as patient’s account supervisor at Connecticut Valley Hospital, a job she excelled at, auditors were amazed at her skill and precision. Esther retired in 1969 after thirty-two years of dedicated service. While at CVH, she met her husband, William A. Waller, Sr., theirs was a love that would endure over fifty years until his passing in 2002.

Esther was a contributing member of First Congregational Church. She loved being outdoors, was an avid gardener of both flowers and vegetables and had a natural green thumb, she and Bill also owned Waller Christmas Tree Farm. Another love of Esther’s were animals, Siamese cats, Shepherds, Terriers, however she would never turn down any stray.

Esther was blessed to have good health almost all of her life, remarkably free of major problems. Although she did not have children, she left a legacy of love and kindness to many. Nieces Lois McGuire and Cathy VanBlaricom became even closer to their Aunt Esther after her husband passed; nephew David Bielefield and Emily Tyner of New York visited whenever possible and brought her much joy. Photos, letters and cards kept her also close to nieces and nephews, Charles Bielefield of Durham, Betsy Bielefield, Barbara Smallshaw and Carolyn Bauer of Middletown, Janet Collins Becker of Kentucky and Donna Rosa of Vermont. Our dear aunt will surely be remembered.

A private graveside service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations in Esther’s memory can be made to Meriden Humane Society, 311 Murdock Avenue, Meriden, CT 06450. To share memories or send condolences, please visit
