ROCKLAND – M. Frances Escorsio, 91, died peacefully, Thursday, January 31, 2019, at the Knox Center for Long Term Care.

Born in Camden, January 13, 1928, she was the daughter of Milton L. and Marjorie King Prescott. She attended Camden schools and was a 1946 graduate of Camden High School.

On October 8, 1948, she married John H. Escorsio in Camden. The couple made their home on Lawrence Street in Rockland, where they lived all their married lives and Frances lived until entering the Knox Center. Few people could make the claim Frances did, “I have lived in only two houses; my Union Street home in Camden and our Lawrence Street home in Rockland.”

Frances always made certain that her door was open for family and friends. Family was most important to Frances and she enjoyed being included in all their lives.

For more than 24 years she worked as a Dietary Supervisor at Knox General Hospital and Pen Bay Medical Center, retiring in 1990.

She enjoyed many bus tour trips with her good friends Jane Dowling and Marie Hall. Another highlight was taking a Disney Cruise with her daughter and family, when they also visited Disney World.

Other than her parents, Frances was pre-deceased by her husband John in 1988; her son-in-law whom she considered as a second son, David Jackson in 2004; a brother, George E. Prescott and a sister, Barbara M. Prescott. She is survived by her son, Gary F. Escorsio and his wife Deborah J. of Union; her daughter, Cathy M. Jackson of Rockland; four grandchildren, Ryan R. Jackson and his companion Christina Holland of Rockland, Jennifer M. Jackson and her husband Al Arsenault of Westbrook, Christopher E. Escorsio of Sefner, FL, Matthew T. Escorsio and his husband Richard of Sabattus; as well as a niece, Barbara A. Prescott of Leesburg, FL, and a nephew Paul Prescott and his wife Jolanta of Camden.

Friends and relatives are invited to visit from 5:00 to 7:00pm, Tuesday, February 12, 2019, at Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland, where a Funeral Service will be held at 11:00am, Wednesday, February 13, 2019. Pastor John B. Usher will officiate. A reception will follow the service at the funeral home’s 104 Limerock center.

While flowers are welcome, those who wish may make memorial donations to the Alzheimer’s Assn., Maine Chapter, 383 U.S. Rt. One, Suite 2C, Scarborough, ME 04074, or Maine Kidney Foundation, P.O. Box 1134, Portland, ME 04104.
