Esther’s death occurred just few weeks before her 97th birthday.

She made occasional appearances on the Kardashian family reality shows and publicly supported Caitlyn in 2015 when she transitioned.

During her appearance on ‘I am Cait,’ Esther said, “My first feeling was, ‘I lost my son.’ Then I thought, ‘You know what? I’m gaining a daughter!’”

She continued with her unwavering support in an interview with the New York Daily News, talking about using the correct pronouns with Caitlyn’s transitioning.

“Think about it. It’s a difficult thing when it’s habit. But I will accomplish this,” Esther said. “I love him dearly. It doesn’t matter whether he dresses like a male or a female. Whatever he needs to make him happy that’s all I care about.”

Esther is survived by her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
