The Churching Sister in Law – LaWanda Page
LaWanda Page is best known for her role as Aunt Esther. We can never get enough of her quick witted tongue. Aunt Esther was the Bible toting, Church going, sister in law of Fred Sanford.
Fred and Esther constantly had words. Everytime we hear the phrase, “Fish eyed Fool”, we think of Aunt Esther! A little something you might not know is that Page and Redd Foxx were very close friends as teenagers.
They both attended school and grew up together in St. Louis. Hence, where the character Fred Sanford is from. Redd Foxx recommended Page for the Esther role and the rest is history. Aunt Esther is definitely one of the best characters of all time!
