Esther Katz

March 9, 1949 — May 29, 2024

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Esther Katz, who peacefully departed this world at the age of 75. Esther's vibrant spirit and unwavering kindness left an indelible mark on everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her.

Esther is survived by her loving family: her son Aaron Hewitson and his wife Brianne, and her cherished grandchildren Ian and Charlie. She also leaves behind her beloved brothers and sister, Marty, Leon, Marlene, and Harry, and her long-time friend and companion, Mark Taylor.

Esther dedicated nearly 50 years of her life to her passion for hairdressing, bringing joy and beauty to her clients in both Los Angeles and Palm Desert. Her skilled hands and warm heart were a source of comfort and confidence to many. Beyond her professional achievements, Esther loved to tell jokes and even performed standup comedy throughout her life. She was known for her hilarious sense of humor and the ability to bring a smile to the faces of friends, family, or strangers. Her genuine warmth and compassion touched countless lives.

Her family and friends will forever cherish the memories of her laughter, love, and the light she brought into their lives. Though she may no longer be with us, Esther's legacy of kindness and joy will live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.

A celebration of Esther's life will be held on Tuesday June 4th @ 12 Noon at Forest Lawn Chapel in Cathedral City. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made to The Butterfly Project in honor of Esther's generous and loving spirit.

Rest in peace, Esther Katz. Your memory will always be a blessing to us all.
