Esther (Slavkin) Sperling

SPERLING: Esther (Slavkin) Sperling, age 85, of Mt. Lebanon, died on Sunday, July 22, 2018. Esther was the beloved wife and inseparable companion for 64 years of Mitchell Sperling, loved mother of Gerri Sperling (David Slesnick) and Larry Sperling (Lourdes Bufill); adored grandmother of Elana Slesnick; and treasured aunt of niece Deborah Slavkin Arnold and nephews David Slavkin, Alan Schrader, Glenn Schrader and Mark Schrader. She is also loved and survived by great-nieces and nephews, cousins and dear friends. Esther was preceded in death by her parents, Harry and Jennie Slavkin, brother Milton Slavkin and niece Diane Slavkin Benson. She was a past president of Temple Emanuel’s Sisterhood and co-chair of its gift shop. A teacher by training and by calling, Esther taught school for over 30 years, primarily with the Allegheny Intermediate Unit, taught GED classes for almost 15 years after her retirement from the AIU, and taught religious school at Temple Emanuel in Mt. Lebanon. She also taught her children, granddaughter, nieces and nephews invaluable life lessons that they cherish. Esther was the matriarch of a widespread but close knit extended family, who loved and revered her so much. Words cannot express how much she will be missed.
