 Esther was born on August 14 th , 1944 in Puerto Rico to Maria Rivera and

James Tarquinio. She was a wonderful wife and mother who was always

there when we needed her. Her kind soul was one of her characteristics

that stood out the most. She was always willing to help someone in their

time of need whether it be with a listening ear, gentle words of support and

encouragement, or a simple but much needed hug. Her hugs were magical,

and her kisses could make any boo-boo feel better. She devoted the

entirety of her life to her husband Jose and children Jeffrey, Josie, Jerry,

and Jenny. Esther decided to start a career as a medical secretary after her

last child Jenny was old enough to start school. She was now a working

mother who juggled a career, motherhood, and being a wife. She faced and

overcame life’s adversities with grace and style. Upon retirement, Esther

and Jose moved to Pennsylvania. She enjoyed her time there caring for her

husband and her beloved dogs. Sadly, however she lost her husband of 53

years when he passed away on August 1 st , 2015. Shortly after, she was

diagnosed with Dementia where she lived out the rest of her days being

cared for at the Valley View Nursing Home. She was preceded in death by

her husband Jose, her son Jeffrey, and both her parents Maria and James.

She is survived by her children Josie, Jerry, and Jenny, her two sisters

JoAnn, and Lori, her brother Manny, her nieces, and nephews, her

grandchildren, great grandchildren, and many lifelong friends. Family and

friends are invited to say a final goodbye to Esther on Wednesday
