Esther Diaz Poor

Posted On July 17th, 2015 -

$nameESTHER DIAZ POOR Esther , age 68, passed away peacefully June 20 at St. Francis Hospice in Nuuanu. She was born May 19, 1947 in Corona, California to Jesse Diaz and Sara Hernandez. She grew up in Riverside, California and attended La Granada Elementary School. Later she attended Norte Vista High school where she was a pompom girl. She played clarinet in the band. She was a graduate of the Riverside beauty academy. After beauty school, she got her license and was a beautician in Riverside. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and aunty. She loved singing and playing ukulele. Her passion was spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ and she was very active in the Word of Life church-Mililani campus. She composed about 25 praise and worship songs which were Bible-based. Her song "Plant the Vision" was a favorite. "Plant the vision Plant the vision The vision of Word of Life On the tablets of my heart On the tablets of my heart " Esther's smile would light up a room, and she had a fun-loving spirit. She enjoyed many sports as a young woman including surfing, windsurfing, volleyball, and paddling canoe. Around 1972 she started jogging on the North Shore, and eventually did 5 Marathon runs. She was very bold in her mission of spreading Christianity. For years she was active in the New Life Church in Haleiwa with Pastor Ron Valenciana. Then for years she attended Kahuku Methodist Church with Pastor Roy Sasaki until he retired. (It was Deli Sasaki that got her active in the music ministry). After that she went to Haleiwa Evangelical Mission with Pastor Edward Fujinaga. She sang from the heart and her solo performance of "Villa Delarosa" was particularly inspiring. In later years, she was active at Word of Life-Honolulu. Then when the Mililani campus opened which was much closer to home, she got more active under Pastors Scott and Darlene Tsuha. Her specialty was the 3-5 year olds in Sunday school. She was like a magnet to the kids. She would play ukulele and sing, or entertain them with hand puppets. She would get down on the floor and play games with them. But always she had a Christian message to teach. For example, when she sang the song, "The Real Meaning of Christmas". Another of her favorites was "Honor Your Father and Your Mother". Esther was an excellent cook of Mexican cuisine. She made her own tortillas by hand! Sometimes she would make flour tortillas with butter, or make quesadillas. She liked bean burritos on a whole wheat tortilla. Corn tortillas would become tacos. Her specialty was home-made chicken enchiladas. For breakfast she would make chili relleno, with Tabasco hot sauce. When she went out to eat her first choice was a bowl of menudo. And she loved to make her own hot sauce with chili peppers. Esther will be remembered for the positive effects she had on the people around her. She taught the right lessons with a spirit of love. She will be missed. She will not be forgotten, because she made a positive difference to those that knew her. She is survived by husband, Steve, daughters, Laura of Ohio, and Carmen of California. Her siblings include David Diaz, Sarah Kahn, and Marilyn Albert. Four grandchildren. At a later date, her ashes will be spread in the ocean. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the American Cancer Society.
