Local La Habra Historian & Author Ester Cramer passes away today. Her most distinctive books: La Habra, the pass through the hills: the formative years of a Southern California community from 1769, and Brea: The City of Oil, Oranges, and Opportunity. Esther was a wonderful person, ready to share her community knowledge at a moment’s notice. Stan Cramer her husband of 63 years, who was involved in a number of local historical organizations, passed on recently. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Cramer family. They will be missed by many.
