Esther Mae Thomsen

F, b. 27 September 1903, d. 24 May 1986
FatherCarl Valdemar Thomsen b. 14 Dec 1861, d. 26 Dec 1945
MotherJohanne Frederikke Zerakitsky b. 19 May 1866, d. 25 Oct 1958
     Esther Mae Thomsen was born on 27 September 1903 in New Jersey.1,2,3,4,5 She was also listed as being born incorrectly in September 1904 in Jersey Her age was correctly given as 11 years, but they subtracted 11 from 1915 to arrive at an incorrect year, failing to take into account that she had yet to celebrate her birthday that year.6 She was the daughter of Carl Valdemar Thomsen and Johanne Frederikke Zerakitsky. Esther Mae Thomsen was also listed as being born, with conflicting, probably wrong, evidence, on 27 September 1903 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. This is the only place her birthplace is given as Philadelphia. All other records list her birth as taking place in New Jersey.7,8 Her name was also recorded as Ester.9 She was a Presbyterian. She was by profession, a teacher, and she tutored the occasional student after her retirement.10,11 She lived before 1985 in Ventnor, Atlantic County, New Jersey. She lived after 1985 in 23371 Blue Water Circle, Building "C", Apartment 205, Boca Raton, Palm Beach County, Florida.12,13 Esther was the only one of the children of Carl and Johanne to go to college.
She never married, although she did have several beaus in her youth, and there was the possibility of marriage. She is often remembered with her dog, a French Poodle, named Pom Pom, who was her companion for years, until his untimely death.
She lived in a modest one-storey house in Ventnor, next to her brother Carl, and his wife Jennie. She drew the plans for her home herself, and therefore it was built to her specifications. She had a collection of plates, with many being hung on her walls. There were many from Denmark, which she collected on her trips there, or which was sent to her by her cousins in Denmark. Both she and Carl maintained contact with their relatives in Denmark, and took pride in their heritage. She supplied the personal information that is found on her mother's death certificate; at that time she did not know the names of her maternal grandparents.
She finally moved to Florida, to a retirement village, at which time she disposed of most of her plate collection, dividing it among her nieces and nephews. She never moved into the place she bought in Florida; she ordered several modifications to be made, and they were being made when she died. She named her brother Carl as the executor of her estate.
She died on 24 May 1986 at Apartment 205, 23371 Blue Water Circle, Boca Raton, Palm Beach County, Florida, at age 82 years, 7 months and 27 days.14,15,13 Her obituary appeared in The Press, Pleasantville, Atlantic County, New Jersey, on 26 May 1986. It read:
