Estelle was such a great woman of character. I lift up the family in prayer.
Estelle, you are the jewel in our lives…We love you.
I am so very sorry for your loss. I am praying for peace for your family during this difficult time.
I received notice of Estelle’s death. Please be assured of my love and prayers. And many thanks for all the good work both of you did while I was at St. Mary’s. I am truly blest.
Estelle’s legacy lives on in the many people she helped and the children to whom she stood godmother. May the gates of heaven open wide for her.
Dear Bill and family, I am sorry to hear of Estelle’s death. She was a very sweet lady. May sweet memories help to comfort you during this sad time. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Our heart breaks to have not been aware of the loss of your sweet Mother
and Bill’s sweet wife. I know he called her his “life”. Estelle was indeed a
caring and compassionate lady and will certainly be missed by the entire
community. May God Bless All of You as you endure the pain of her loss.
We feel privileged to have had the opportunity to call Estelle “Friend” for many
years. Our entire family sends their heartfelt condolences to all of your family.
Ed & Bea Uvacek, Debi, Cindy, Eddie and all of our family.
Bill and family – so sorry to hear about Estelle – a good, good person and as I remember, she accompanied you in all outings and had her projects with her to work on while listening to whatever. You will no doubt miss her presence with you so much, but she has reached the goal of each of us and we can be grateful for that and the blessings she shared during her time among us. I am in Bryan helping for a while at Santa Teresa and got word late about the funeral – I had a funeral here at Sta. Teresa at 1p.m. yesterday – but please know she was in prayer and all of your family yesterday. So sorry for your loss – Blessings to you.

The Scott Family,
So sorry to hear about Estelle. We always enjoyed seeing her in church when we were visiting my parents. Mary Anne, know I am thinking about your family and praying you find comfort in your memories.
Dear Scott Family,
We are saddened to hear of your loss and wish to express our sincere sympathy
and condolences. We appreciate and honor the many years of service to this
community by both of you. We always valued your friendship and will cherish
our memories of Estelle.
Bill and family, I was so sorry to hear about Estelle. She was a great person and I enjoyed working with her for almost 14 years. I didn’t hear from her very much or see her many times since we went to different jobs but I thought about her often and didn’t think about her being sick because she was a hard worker and I never saw her still very much.
May God Bless you, Bill and the rest of the family and give you the strength to go forward in your life until you see her again.
Jerry and Rue
