Entered into Eternal Rest

Esther Hillary Stofocik
Esther H. Stofocik, 89, passed away peacefully on Monday afternoon.
She was born in Tamaqua, PA on January 14th, 1929. Her father Charles Eames worked at Eames’ Bakery in Tamaqua as did her mother Esther (Hoffman) Eames.
During her youth, she worked as a waitress at the Taylor’s Diner. She always served food with a smile and truly enjoyed having conversations with all who came to the Diner. That smile continued with her as Secretary at the Tamaqua area Salvation Army at which she served 30 dedicated years.
Although an extremely hard worker, who was always available to get the job done, she enjoyed her may hobbies while always making time to visit her family and see friends. Though her life was spent mostly in Tamaqua, she retired in Virginia to be closer to family.
Esther was preceded in death by her husband Joseph Stofocik, Sr., her brother Michael, and her sisters Anna, Mary and Rita.
Esther will be greatly missed but not forgotten. She is survived by her sons Joseph A. Stofocik, Jr. and Michael Stofocik and her grandchildren, Rachel, Nick, Kathleen and Kevin. She will also be missed by her 6 great granddaughters whom she had the pleasure of seeing and caring for during her later years.
The Funeral Service will be arranged and announced at a later date.
