Estella Victoria Frenchman (83), was born on January 12, 1937 in Oklahoma City Oklahoma to Valentino and Frances Enríquez. She was one of 14 children. Six brothers, Valentino (Chito), Alexander (Bo), Antonio (Tony), Leo, Robert and Steve (Danny). Seven sisters, Josephine (Pina), Rosie, Mary, Kathaline (Cathy), Margaret (Maggy), Julia and Sarah.

Although Stella did not complete high school (she had to quit high school to help her mom and sister “Pina” take care of her younger brothers and sisters) Although she grew up in poverty she did learn how to be her own boss. Estella was a woman ahead of her time, an entrepreneur, who ran her own club throughout the mid 70s until the early 90s and had her own restaurant as well, for a brief time. Estella was married several times and had seven children & later adopted a grandson, Thomas (Tommy), Consuelo (Chelo), Carol, Eugenia (Gina), Jose (Lolo), Grace, Margaret (Molly) and Gerardo (Guero).

Estella was preceded in death by her parents (Valentino and Frances) four brothers {(Alexander (Bo), Leo, Antonio (Tony) and Robert)}, four sisters {(Josephine (Pina), Kathaline (Cathy), Julia and Sarah)}, as well as, two sons {(Thomas (Tommy) and Jose (Lolo)}. Estella was survived by two brothers {Valentino (Chito) and Steve (Danny)} three sisters {Rosie, Mary and Margaret (Maggy)}, her five daughters {Consuelo (Chelo), Carol, Eugenia (Gina), Grace and Margaret (Molly)} one son, Gerardo (Guero) as well as, a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, her grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren

Estella had the good fortune of having a better life in her adult years, she enjoyed having her own business she could vacation whenever she wanted and knew how to throw some parties. She would invite Mariachis to play at some of her cookouts and have people in costume for holidays, because she wanted the kids to have a good time. She also liked going to the casinos, thrift stores and couldn’t pass up a yard sale, even if she was to give someone a ride to work, you would be late.

Estella will live on through the memories we have and we will share with her great grandchildren about her, how she would wake everyone up on the weekends with her music blasting in the kitchen whistling, humming or singing along, making her homemade tortillas. She will be missed by family, loved ones and the many friends she had made throughout her life. Estella will always be in our hearts, may she rest In peace.

Mamasita
We are blessed to have learned many valuable lessons from our Mamasita
Estelina Victoria Ibarra Frenchman. She was an accomplished self made business woman. Our Mom taught us to Live Life to the Fullest and not to let any obstacles to get in the way of our success in life.

Mamasita had a creative business style that allowed her to raise her children on her own. She taught us to be Strong.

I remember as a child there was this man on the streets always carrying this heavy signs that spoke of Jesus, Heaven and even Hell. Mom always called him the Jesus man and without fail wherever we saw him she would always give him money.
She taught us Charity at an early age.

Mamasita had the best sense of humor and she taught us to Laugh.

Mom's love for her mother taught us how to Love her, our mother.

Mother had many friends, she taught us to Cherish our friendships.
Mom had a love for music and she loved to sign.
She taught us to the love of music and our Mexican Heritage

We know you are in a better place and in no more pain, you are reunited with our dear family members that went before you. We know this because you taught us Faith.

We are so thankful to God to have been able to call you our Mamasita, sometimes Mother, Mom or Mudder.
We love you and always, you will be forever in our hearts

Te queremos mucho mamasita ahora y para siempre

Your loving daughters
