Esther Karasic Shiva Contribution




Esther Karasic, 94, died on October 11, 2021 from complications of a fall on October 7, 2021.

Esther, born on December 20, 1926, in Long Branch, NJ, was the youngest daughter of Mollie Sternbach
Binder, a homemaker, and Alex Binder, a butcher, both of whom were immigrants from Eastern Europe.

She graduated in 1944 from Long Branch High School and was not able to attend college as she had
hoped, because of the death of her father that same year necessitated her working to help support her

Esther worked from 1963 until the early 1990’s as a budget analyst and benefits coordinator for the
Ocean Township Board of Education in New Jersey.

She was a past president of the Ocean Township PTA and starred in local theater productions.

She relocated to the Baltimore area in 1997 to be closer to her family. She resided in Kauai, HI from
2004 to 2006 to care for her younger son, Keith, during his final illness. She moved to Oak Crest Senior
Living in 2008.

Esther miraculously survived a near fatal car accident in 2014 at age 88, despite being a passenger in a
car that was hit on her side at 50 mph. After emerging from a coma in the hospital some weeks later,
she was able to communicate for the first time by shakily writing, “Who picked this place?”

Her rapier wit, ever-present sense of humor, consummate baking skills, and dedication to, and love of,
her family and friends will be greatly missed.

Esther is survived by her loving son, Judge Ronald A. Karasic and his wife, Donna.

She was pre-deceased by her parents, and siblings, Idelle Edelstein, Clare Gruber and Ralph Binder, and
her son, Keith J. Karasic.

Her marriage to Maurice “Chop” Karasic ended in divorce.

A celebration of Esther’s life will be held at a later time on her beloved Jersey Shore.

A donation in Esther’s memory can be made to Gilchrist Hospice Center Towson, 11311 McCormick Road, Hunt Valley, MD 21031.
