Esther L. Marrs, 98, of Paris, passed away peacefully at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, June 16, 2022, at Horizon Health.

Services are private. Stewart and Carroll Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.

Mrs. Marrs was born July 16, 1923, in Paris, the daughter of the late Lewis and Lula Thiel. She graduated from Paris High School where she met her husband, Maurice Joseph Marrs. They were married on July 28, 1946, in Paris, and he proceeded her in death Oct. 5, 1992. 

Surviving are her sons and their families, Gary (Paula) Marrs, Larry (Bonnie) Marrs and Wayne (Nancy) Marrs. She was blessed to have seven grandchildren, Heather Dean, Thad (Maria) Marrs, Adam Marrs, Megan (Ryan) Carroll, Blake (Allyson) Marrs, Jessica (Aaron) Farris and Tucker (Madison Neeley) Marrs. Her biggest pride and joy came from her nine great-grandchildren, Asher Dean, Tyson and Sophia Marrs, Olivia, Maxwell and Nolan Carroll, Will and Mason Marrs and Nora Farris. 

She was preceded in death by her sisters, Irene Sidenbender, Mary Stickler, Ruth Donnell and a brother, Glen Thiel.

Mrs. Marrs was a hardworking farm wife who made sure her husband and sons were always well taken care of. She also was employed at Colson’s. She was a member of the Bell Ridge Christian Church and took great pride in her faith and made it her life’s mission to serve others. 

She was a woman who always put her family first. She was found at every event her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were part of, whether it was football games, Eagle Scout programs, 4-H rabbit shows, FFA events, drama productions, softball games, basketball games or cattle shows. 

Mrs. Marrs took great pride in the fact that she was one of the first to participate in sports as a woman and loved to share stories about her time playing softball, basketball and pole vaulting. She also was an avid weather watcher and kept tabs on anything going on with the family farm operation. Her love for cooking and baking was enjoyed by all, and she passed that love and knowledge to her family. She was best known for her noodles and custard pies.  

Memorial donations may be made to Bell Ridge Christian Church.
