Esther Rohrs

Esther Rohrs, 67, of Arundel, died peacefully surrounded by family after a brief struggle with pancreatic cancer. Born and raised in Endwell, New York, she was a pioneering woman in the field of finance and worked for many years at IBM.

She was known and loved for her many genuine friendships and infectious laugh. She will be dearly missed by her loving husband, Theo, two children Gretchen and Jeffrey, three grandchildren Holden, Audrey, and David, and her brother Donald and his family, along with many cousins.

Funeral services will be held at Bibber Memorial Chapel, 67 Summer St., Kennebunk, Friday Nov. 22, 2019 at 2 p.m.
