Estella Jaimes Puebla, a beloved wife, mother, sister, and grandmother, passed away on November 26, 2023, in Seguin, Texas. She was born on January 13, 1953, in Tejupilco in the state of Mexico. Estella's life was one filled with love, compassion, and cherished moments shared with those she held dear.
Estella is preceded in death by her parents, Raul Jaimes and Carmen Jaimes Puebla, as well as her sister Esmeralda Jaimes.
She is survived by her devoted husband of 52 years, Zacarias Jaimes Navarro. Their marriage was a true testament to love and commitment that served as an inspiration to all who knew them. Estella's impact on her family extended beyond her husband as she leaves behind three loving sons, Cesar Jaimes (Geneva Guerra), Beto Jaimes (Rachel Brown), and Jesus Jaimes.
Estella's grandchildren were the light of her life, and she treasured every moment spent with them. She is survived by Benjamin Jaimes, Seth May, Anthony Guerra, Chris Guerra, Kimberly Guerra, Draven Brown, and Drake Brown. Her legacy of love and devotion will forever be carried forward through the lives of these cherished grandchildren.
Estella moved to Bandera, Texas at the age of 19 and after the birth of her eldest son moved to Seguin. She worked and raised two more boys in Seguin and she retired from Tyson foods after 15 years of employment. Her love of life was revealed after surviving 2 bouts of breast cancer. Her laugh was infectious. Everyone who met her was always made to feel at home and loved. She was a matriarchal figure to so many. "Momma/Welita" will be remembered for bringing joy, happiness and kind words of wisdom. Her absence has left a void that can never be filled in the hearts of those who loved her dearly. However, her memory will live on in the countless lives she touched with her kindness, compassion, and unwavering spirit. She will forever be remembered for her selflessness, warmth, and the love she showered upon all those fortunate enough to have known her.
