Esterina Francesca (Giorgio) Larsh, 69, of Palmyra, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020, in the M.S. Hershey Medical Center. She was born on Wednesday, Jan. 31, 1951, in Messina, Sicily, to the late Frank P. and Tindara (Princiotto) Giorgio. She is survived by her loving husband of 45 years, Dr. W. Gregory Larsh.
She graduated from Reading High School in 1969 and spent most of her professional life in companion care. She enjoyed reading and sharing her literary journeys with friends and strangers both near and far. She was amazing at being “present” as an encourager and comforter. She loved being a mother and grandmother and was the bond that held the family together. Most of all, she lived her life according to the teachings of Jesus Christ. Her selfless love and compassion for all will be missed by all who knew her.
She is survived by three daughters, Jennifer A. Larsh, and significant other, Christopher Posch, of Reading, Jessica E. Black, of Harrisburg, and Brittany J. Jacoby, of Palmyra; two granddaughters, Vivian Grace Jacoby and Juliet Francesca Posch; three brothers, Michael Giorgio, and wife, Arlen, of Lebanon, Tindaro Giorgio, and wife, Linda, of Reading, and Carl Giorgio, and wife, Cheryl, of Bethel; a sister, Maria Henderson, and husband, Gene, of Reading; a sister-in-law, Shelley Giorgio, of Rehrersburg; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by a brother, Joseph Giorgio.
