Visionner la présentation hommage

The world sadly lost an incredible woman on January 10, 2021, when Mrs. Esther Betty Diskin passed away.

A natural born humanitarian, Esther never met a person that was not soon a friend. She was born June 13, 1938, in Detroit, Michigan to Levon and Vergin Yesayian. She had a wonderful way of looking at the world with a “child-like” innocence. She gave everyone the benefit of the doubt and her greatest asset was her ability to make you feel welcomed and loved. A master needle pointer from age 4, she created many beloved pieces shared with friends and family throughout the years. She is remembered for her love of Christmas, Mickey Mouse, anything patriotic, cartoons, her generosity, her ability to feed the masses, her ability to strike up a conversation with anyone and, her devotion to her family.

Esther was preceded in death by her father Levon Yesayian, her mother Vergin Yesayian, and her brother Leo Yesayian.

She is survived by her bashert of more than 61 years, Dr. Richard Diskin, as well as her children Steven Diskin and daughter-in-law Kathy, Lisa Diskin and partner Julio Garcia-Laffitte, Alan Diskin and daughter-in-law Na, Jodi Diskin Manzella and son-in-law Jeff. She adored her grandchildren, Eileen Diskin and partner Jeff Bradley, Alex Diskin and husband Matt DeLuca, Kim Diskin and finace Kyle Flores, Sydney Ann Schapel, Chloe Diskin, Mason Manzella, Madelyn Diskin, and great granddaughter Evelyn DeLuca.

Esther often said that, at the end of your life, if you can count true friends on one hand to consider yourself lucky. It should be noted that Esther’s true friends could be counted on the hands of more than a dozen people! She has left an indelible mark on the world and will not soon be forgotten. Services will be held on Friday, January 22, at 12:00pm, at King David Memorial Chapel.

Due to COVID restrictions, attendance is limited to family only.

We remember meeting Esther several decades ago at their home in Vegas. Her and Richard were hosting a barbecue and she was feeding the masses that came over. We were under the outdoor misters and she asked who can man the grill and I volunteered. She brought the meat and seasoning, but Richard's allergies to a certain spice were missed by me. Richard was a bit tingly, and Esther had us laughing over it.
We had a great time, including meeting a wonderful woman. She will be missed.

My thoughts have been with you each day since Esther’s passing. She and my late husband were the very best of friends. I was, and still am, welcomed as family. Dick and Esther even joined us on a cruise to the Caribbean in years past. We visited often and enjoyed our time with Esther immensely. Esther didn’t have a bad word for anyone with the possible exception of Harry Reid. Give him hell Esther when he joins you

Our first and sadly only memory of Ms. Esther is when she came to Virginia for Sydney’s graduation. We all went out to eat and immediately became friends. Esther was ready to share so many memories from her life and we loved listening to all of them. During their visit my husband, Mark took Esther and Richard to the Marine Corp. Museum in Quantico and they lost Esther. Mark claims that the first place he and Dr. Diskin looked was in a Corsair airplane hanging from the ceiling because that is where they expected her to be, but I think they found her sitting patiently on a bench waiting for the “two old fellas.” We feel so fortunate to have met and known for a short while, Esther and Richard.

Dear Lisa and Family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your loving mother, wife, and grandmother. I have heard about Esther and Richard for years, and was lucky enough to have the pleasure of meeting them on one of their early visits to Virginia. Lisa, you and I have spoken so often of our families over all the years that I have known you, that I feel like I know all of them! You were right there with me in thought and prayer as my own mother passed away in 2017 and I want you to know that I am with you and your family in the same way today. I will be thinking of you all on Friday.
Love,
Anne
