Eileen Jester Obituary

     Eileen Mayan Jester, 69, of West Lampeter Township, PA, passed away late Thursday evening, March 2, 2023, at Hospice & Community Care in Mount Joy.  Born in Danville, PA , she was the daughter of the late Paul Mayan and Frances Mayan (Reilly) Cesarano. 

     After graduating from Caesar Rodney High School in Camden, DE, Eileen went on to obtain a bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware.  She was married in 1982 and was employed as a secretary prior to dedicating her time to raising her two sons, her absolute pride and joy, in Lancaster, PA. Later in life she returned to professional work as a paraprofessional educator at Fritz Elementary School. She loved children and teaching and very much enjoyed being in the classroom. Known to her family as a fantastic cook, Eileen also greatly enjoyed nature, especially hikes at Mount Rainer in Washington, and visits to Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania.

     Left to cherish her memory; her son, Paul W. Jester and his wife Jaclyn; grandson, Cole Jester and Cole’s mother Katey Kincaid; her former husband, Michael Jester; and her sisters, Carol Berdinka and her husband Mitch; Patricia Schwalm and her husband John; and Mary Ann Manley and her husband Jack.  She is predeceased by her son, Adam Jester.
