May 30, 1920 - October 30, 2013
Esther Kort was born 30 May 1920 c.e. in Antwerp Belgium the daughter of Manya and Yitzchak Sibul (Cebularz), both deceased. At the age of 9 months, she immigrated with her Mother, brother Hymen and sister Rose to New York to join her Father. She married Harris Boone Kort, deceased, of New York, living primarily in Dobbs Ferry NY where she raised three children, Ellen K. Price now of San Francisco CA married to Richard W. Price MD, Stephen D. Kort, DMA, JD, now of Leawood, KS married to Ellen L. Kort, and Laurie Harkavy, now of Monsey, NY married to Yitzchak Harkavy, deceased. Esther also leaves behind eleven grandchildren and thirty-three great-grandchildren. After her children left the home, Esther worked as an administrative assistant at, among other companies, Union Carbide and attended Westchester County Community College. In 1996, Esther moved to Overland Park KS where she continued her greatest passions – her relationships with her children and especially her grandchildren with whom she developed a special bond based on mutual love, respect and trust, her education and her artwork. On Wednesday morning the 30th of October 2013 c.e. while a resident of Village Shalom, the Compassionate One compassionately ended her life. Esther was a non-traditional person – not your regular mother or grandmother. Her memory is embedded in those close to her. May her soul be bound in the bonds of life. Shiva/Memorial Service Wednesday 6 November 2013 c.e., 6:00 pm at Village Shalom. The family thanks the staff of Village Shalom for their unparalleled care and commitment to Esther’s wellbeing during the last three years.
