My memories of dear Mrs Estelle are hearing my mother, Jean Riddle, tell about all their adventures in thrift business and flea marketing for many years. My mama did so love Mrs. Estelle.

Dear family, your mom was one of a kind. The phrase "Getter Done"! Her Motto. She was always fun to be around. We loved her stories. We loved her!
God Bless each of you, Calvin and Brenda

Estelle's Family, I have known Estelle and all the Pyatt family about as long as I've known anyone. I cherish all those years at Chapel Hill, growing up playing with Robert, Becky, and Lib. We had been fun times. I loved Estelle any time I saw her so was doing just great she said with a huge smile on her face. I always told her she never aged and had more energy than six people. Always a project going on, something to sell. She was a joy to be around and I will miss her . I know you have many great memories . God will comfort you in these sad days head, if you will only ask. All my love to each of you. Barbara Fender Everhart.
