Esther GASTWIRTH Obituary

Esther was born in Vilna, Poland, and passed away on November 30, 2013, just before her 90th birthday and three months after the loss of her loving husband, Morris. Esther survived the Holocaust and in her retirement co-founded and actively worked with the Holocaust Survivors of the Palm Beaches. She published her autobiographical poetry with transcriptions of other survivors' stories (Determination, Courage, Destiny), and in her later years wrote fictional short stories. Esther is survived by her children Howard (Candy) and Francine Shay (Alan), grandchildren Adam (Barbara) and Jason (Jane) and great-grandchildren Matthew, Emily, Micah and Jonah. She was loved by all, and will be sorely missed by family, friends, and colleagues.
