Estelita was born January 14, 1985, in Fort Worth to Yolanda Gonzalez. She started her education at 3 years old attending Kimball Art Museum School. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from North Side High School in 2002 and was a member of the National Honor Society, completing her requirements in 3 years. Estelita also graduated from the St. Patrick Religious Formation Classes.
She was the heart and soul of the family with her endless devotion to our Lord and Savior and to us all and then some. Those close to her knew that she was their advocate, prayer warrior, counselor, defender, banker, loan collector, problem solver and supporter. She was always there to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Estelita loved reading and learning new things. She had a great talent for dancing, singing, cooking, care-giving, joke telling, technology and a million other things. One of her goals in life was to make her Nana smile and laugh every day. The memory of her fantastic meals and special recipe desserts for birthdays will always bring us joy. We will all miss her infectious laugh, unconditional love, compassion, understanding, and healing ways. She will be with us forever.
Estelita was preceded in death by her Grandfather, Leopoldo (Polo) Gonzalez Jr.; Uncle, Leopoldo (Leo) Gonzalez III and Aunt Maria Virginia (Mandy) Gonzalez.
