Estela D. Ojeda, age 97, of Brownsville, Texas passed away on Wednesday, February 17, 2021. Estela was born September 9, 1923.

A shy, quiet, God-loving woman. She loved gardening, crocheting, going to the casino, and playing bingo. She was a terrific cook and loved making tortillas- especially when she knew the grandkids were coming. The tortillas would fly off that comal, and you could see the pride and joy on her face. One day she remarked, " I've had a hard life! " So, we reminded her of those big picnics we had; and the Christmases at her house, where you could only see half the tree because of the gifts; the happy chaos of the kids; and what about the sledding trip? Sure, you tore your coat, but made it all the way down! And all the weddings, remember them? Then she smiled and said, " I really did have a good life, didn't I?"

Estela is survived by her husband Jesus Ojeda; daughter Olga Ojeda Reney; daughter Oralia Ojeda Newman; son Jesus Ojeda Jr; and daughter Maria Alicia Ojeda.

Also survived by 15 Grandchildren, 24 Great-Grandchildren, 23 Great-great Grandchildren She is preceded in death by her son Hector Jose Ojeda and daughter Maria Elena Ojeda Duplantis.
