BY CAROL HIGGINS Her matting address is Superior, but Mrs. Esther Lynch, a lively 72 years, says, "I just come home here to sleep." She retired from employment as clerk at the Superior post office as of Jan. 5, but that only left her more time to spend on her four other jobs. When a friend asked her what she would do with her time, she snorted, "What will 1 do? 1 need a helper." In addition to working at the post office the past l9 l j years, she served as town treasurer, for a time kept books for the church, and in the. past few years has been a salesman for three different companies. Keeping the town books doesn't "take to© much time, but quite a bit at the end of the year," she say*. She had Ions hour* « the post office through Christ- mis, then town books were to be closed by the end of the year. Some years ago, she began haloing an annual open house at her home in the fall, with refreshments for all comers and display of the items which she sells. These include kitchen spices, cleaning products, greeting cards and numerous gift items. Her doctor wants her that she is "full of arthritis." "Every week I think, 'Next week won't be so busy,' " she continues. "But it keeps me out of mischief. 1 have always went this way. I wouldn't be happy to sit here. "I grew up all around this community," she says, "Spirit Lake, Milford— born down near Spencer." After high school, "I was going to go on and go to Coe. Then I got a chance to go into the telephone office and was making more money titan the girls that went through college." In time she was offered a supervisor' s job but turned that down in favor of marriage. Esther and her husband, Art, had one son, Jack, who is serving in the armed forces in Germany. Her daughter-in-law and grandchildren are in Iowa whom she visits often. Her husband died about 13 years ago. She had considerable doubt about it when she first began selling door-to-door. "I never sold before in my life, never had any intention of selling anything. "But I law made some wonderful friends with this. 1 like people," she continues. "Tim's what 1 like about it- I lave a vacation every day when I go out." At the first two-day open house which site held, "I wondered if anyone would come, but at 9 a.m., five cars pulled up. — had 65 people in two days." Since then friends have come in to help with furnishing and serving refreshments. Her sister, who also likes to come and help, says, "You know, your house is just like Grand Central Station." And Esther says, "1 like it that way." Lutheran Circles Make Plans Service projects were planned at meeting* of Immanuel Lutheran Circles held Tuesday and Wfofaesday.
