Esther Ursu, 92

Mrs. Esther L. Ursu, 92, of Ellwood City passed away at the Evergreen Nursing Center on Sunday, November 10, 2013 at 11:25 pm.

One very cold January day I walked through a door onto a planet of blue and greens and enjoyed the greater part of my 90 some years exploring its beauty and majestic areas where I could.  I found it a very exciting experience.
I have met many of its inhabitants of various ethnic groups and races. From some I learned the warmth of smiles and even laughter. From some I learned the painful meaning of tears. But then, perhaps, the tears were only the expression of my repentence. A most meaningful lesson!

I now enter another door into a different existence and as I say farewell to those I know and love, I cannot help wonder if someday, somehow or somewhere, we may meet again under a different sun on the path of living time. Perhaps! Only the Great Creator knows!!

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Samuel Teolis Funeral Home Inc., Ellwood City, Pa.
