So sorry to hear of your loss. Estelle was such a precious woman. One filled with love for everyone she would meet. I loved back in the day visiting with her, never a dull moment. I know she will be missed by many, because she has touched so many lives throughout the years. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. God be with you during this time, and fill your hearts with many wonderful memories.

I had the privilege of meeting and knowing Estelle when she and my sister, Bertha Ferguson, were roommates at Columbus Transitional Care. However, I had known some of her family previously but was totally unaware of the connection. My husband, Jim, and I used to socialize with Carl and Carol and I had also been acquainted with Tracey. The more I knew Estelle, the more I liked her and enjoyed her company. We were very good friends after a short friendship. She was a lovely and wonderful woman. I'm so glad I got to know her and learn of her family members. Please know that I will miss her and am so very sorry to know that she has passed. Bertha and I and my other sister, Mary were also very fond of her. She was easy to love. Thank you for sharing her with us. Sincerely, Charlotte Battin

I was a caregiver of minnie when she first came to CTC. She was always a hoot and we shared many laughs. Always had a smile on her face. I later got another job but never forgot about her. She was a true gem and will definitely be missed. Rest easy dear friend xoxoxo
