Angels Bio:

Grace Terese Eslick, 16, of West Pittston, lost her battle to the disease of addiction on Sunday, Oct. 29, 2017.

Born Aug. 13, 2001, in Voorhees, N.J., Grace was the daughter of James and Desiree Ahlum Eslick. She attended Wyoming Area High School.

Grace was a beautiful, caring, intelligent young girl. She loved make-up, music, fashion, and animals. Her friends and family meant everything to her.

She was preceded in death by her brother, Joseph Eslick.

In addition to her parents, James and Desiree Eslick, Grace is survived by her brothers, James Eslick and Shane Eslick; her maternal grandmother, Bernadette Gately, and grandfather, J.D. Taylor, King of Prussia; her paternal grandmother, Ann Haughney, Wilkes-Barre; her maternal grandfather, Robert Ahlum, Mason, Ohio; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Our nation is in the grips of an epidemic that is claiming our children. Beautiful Grace, who had so much potential, is now an angel who, we believe, will look over all those struggling with addiction.
