Esterina Francesca (Giorgio) Larsh, 69, of Palmyra, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, November 19, 2020 in the M.S. Hershey Medical Center.  She was born Wednesday, January 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.
