Esther Carolyn (Frederick) Stuehm, 77, passed away August 4, 2022 peacefully in Poplar, MT.

Esther was born on September 15, 1944 in Wolf Point, MT to Hattie (Hinman) & Lewis Frederick.  She graduated from Poplar High School in 1964.  Esther continued her education with a year at Northwest Nazarene College and finished at a business school in Billings, MT where she met her husband, George Stuehm, while volunteering at the local mission.  Out of this union came their only child, Kenda Kay Stuehm.

Esther retired from the Poplar School District in 2020 after 25 years of service.  Esther loved being a paraprofessional to all the kids she helped.  She also worked at the After School Program helping tutor kids.  Before this, she worked as the main receptionist, and later the training secretary, at A&S Tribal Industries for over 20 years.

Esther enjoyed reading, leading/going to bible studies, singing, & potlucks.  She was an avid member of both the community & Dakota choirs.  She also was a Girl Scout leader for many years. Esther was the fill-in pastor for the local Nazarene Church when they needed it.  She liked to laugh and have fun, hence her nick name for many years as The One-Armed Bandit.  Most people know that she could do more with her one arm than a lot of people with two!  Esther will be greatly missed by all who knew her!
