Esther MAGLIARI Obituary
July 20, 1929 - May 5, 2016 Esther Marie Magliari, 86, passed away May 5, 2016, in Lancaster, Calif., after a long illness. She was a loving and devoted daughter, sister and aunt who will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She was an inspiration to all. Esther was born July 20, 1929, in Los Angeles and lived in the city for much of her life. She was the oldest child and only daughter of Fortunato (Fred) Magliari, a factory worker, and Jennie Tecca Magliari, a homemaker. She attended George Washington High School in Los Angeles. After graduation she joined the Automobile Club of Southern Calif. at its Figueroa Blvd. headquarters. She loved the Club and served it loyally for 45 years, spending much of her career as an insurance underwriter. She retired in 1995. In 1972, Esther moved to Westminster, Calif., where she made her home for the next 43 years. Looking after her extended family was her greatest pleasure, and she loved preparing big holiday meals and Sunday dinners for a crowd. She was always ready to lend an ear, tell a funny story or share a sandwich and cookies with her loved ones. Esther is survived by her brother and sister-in-law Anthony and Dori Magliari of Ridgecrest, Calif; brother John Magliari of Costa Mesa, Calif.; nephews Scott (Jackie), Michael (Karen), David (Jan), Gregg (Cindy), Dan (Gloria) and Dana Magliari; nieces Susan Warfel and Diana Magliari; 16 great nieces and nephews; 3 great great nieces and a great great nephew. Visitation will be held Wednesday, May 18, 2016, from 3 to 8 p.m., with Rosary service from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., at Holy Cross Mortuary, 5835 West Slauson Avenue, Culver City, CA.
