Roxbury, MA

Our dearest Mom, Edith Esterene, passed away too soon, leaving behind a legacy of love and kindness that touched so many lives. Born on April 30, 1953, in Panama Central America, she was the beloved daughter of Peter Esterene from South Carolina and Inocencia Henry-Vernon from Bocas Del Toro Panama. Mom was the heart of so many families and friends. She was a beacon of love and strength. She leaves behind three of four children who adored her: Indira Biggs-Alvarez, Franklin Biggs (deceased), Huey Cooper, and Giovanni Cooper, along with their spouses Abraham Alvarez and Osa Hill-El. She was a cherished grandmother to Gloria Alvarez, I. Indy Alvarez, and Abraham Alvarez Jr. She also leaves behind her last surviving sister, Amanda Vernon, and a multitude of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends, all of whom were touched by her warmth and compassion. Throughout her life, Mom wore many hats with grace and dedication. She worked tirelessly in the banking industry as a branch supervisor, and later in the medical sector, both in the lab and the ER. But it was her role as a case manager at the Mass Association for the Blind and the Visually Impaired that truly exemplified her spirit of service. There, she advocated passionately for those with sight challenges, ensuring they had access to the resources they needed to thrive. Mom's compassion knew no bounds. As the mother of a son with autism, she became a fierce advocate for individuals with autism, dedicating herself to raising awareness and understanding in her community. Beyond her professional and advocacy work, Mom had a passion for nurturing life in all its forms. She cultivated lush gardens that transformed her home into a vibrant oasis, and her love for crystals filled her living space with beauty and energy. Every Saturday, when we were younger, she enlisted our help in caring for her beloved plants and crystals, teaching us the importance of responsibility and appreciation for the natural world. Though we mourn her passing, we take solace in knowing that Mom is now at peace, free from pain and worry, in a better place. Her love will continue to guide us, her memory will always be cherished, and her legacy of kindness will live on in the lives she touched. Rest in peace, dearest Mom. You will forever remain in our hearts. With all our love, Your Children To to the family or in memory of Edith C. Esterene, please
