Last glimpse of spring, by Mel Hunt

Esther N. Wyckoff Moultrup, Scio


Esther N. Wyckoff Moultrup, 92, of Wolf Spring Road passed away peacefully at home on March 22, 2021, surrounded by her daughters. She was born July 29, 1928 in Scio, to Ernest and Agnes (Ost) Jackson.

 Esther was a lifelong resident of Scio, and worked as a waitress at the Modern Diner and The Village Coffee Shop, as well as a bartender at Charlie’s Restaurant and Bierman’s. She was a member of the Wellsville Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary, and a member of the Scio Volunteer Fire Department, Hose Company # 2.

On August 21st, 2005, she married Norman H. Moultrup in an intimate ceremony full of celebration for the love they shared for over 20 years. Norman and Esther loved listening to music and going on dates to dance the night away with their many country music friends. Norman predeceased Esther in June of 2006 but was carried very closely in her heart every day since.

Esther is survived by: her three daughters, Betty Jo (Rick) Moultrup of Allentown, Patricia (Robert) Stannard of Scio, and Virginia Elliott of Wellsville; a son, Jason (Ashley) Moultrup of Belfast; a son-in-law Bruce Guinnip of Scio; and daughter-in-law Karen Wyckoff of Geneva. She was a grandmother to fourteen; Tara, Sandy, Rickie, Michael, Laceanne, Daniel, David, Andrew, Crystal, Reggie, Christopher, Samantha, Carly, and Emma. Her grandchildren were always a source of pride for Esther, she loved baking for her grandchildren as well as challenging them to a game of Rummy. She was proudly great-grandmother to eighteen.

Esther is survived by her brother Ronald (Sue) Jackson of Delevan, sisters Linda Rix of Scio, and Sandra (Willis) Duell of Singlehouse, PA. She was Aunt Esther to 46. Esther is predeceased by her daughter Dorothy Guinnip; and son, Edward Wyckoff. She was also predeceased by: two brothers, Ernest Jackson and Robert Jackson; as well as five sisters, Cora Kinnicut, Ernestine Haynes, Beverly Brown, Audrey Jean Jackson, and Betty Marie Jackson.

There was never a time you weren’t welcome at Esther and Norman’s home and you could be sure it would be decorated for the season. We are comforted that she is at peace and has joined the sides of her family, especially Norman, Dotsie and Eddie. She will be forever loved and will now be carried closely in all of our hearts.
