Esther Jurott

We received word from Lester Jurott, son of Graham and Esther Jurott to advise that Esther passed away Monday 6 August 2018 at her nursing home. 

Lester said Esther “passed peacefully in her aged care facility. She had advanced Dementia and I think her soul can now join Dad's.  Mum was in excellent care by the Staff at Janolma centre, and I thank them for their work.”

It was only in October 2017 last year that Graham passed away. Both Graham and Esther were Life Members of the club and will be missed.  Esther joined the club soon after it started and they were married in 1954.

Here is a photo of Graham and Esther in happier times heading off on their honeymoon in 1954.  A classic shot reflecting their love of photographer, bikes and the great outdoors.  The bike is a Jawa 350 twin 2 stroke made in Czechoslovakia. Lester advises that they rode that bike to Melbourne and back, at a time when motorcycle apparel wasn't what it is today and the highway definitely wasn't what it is today!

Our condolences go to Lester Jurott, his partner Janelle Tebbutt, the extended Jurott family and friends.  The funeral will be held on Friday 17th August at Mt Thompson Crematorium (East Chapel) at 10:30AM and following the funeral at Holland Park Hotel.
