Obituary of Enedelia "Nellie" M. Estrada
Enedelia “Nellie” M. Estrada,78, died peacefully on October 21, 2019 surrounded by her loving family and in the comfort of her own home in Boise, Idaho. She was born in Allende Coahuila Mexico on November 17, 1940 and migrated to Eagle Pass, Texas as a teenager with her parents and siblings.
Nellie lived in Chicago before settling in Nyssa, Oregon with her children. It was there that she and her children put their roots down and formed lifelong friendships and memories with many who mourn her passing. After all of her children married and left home, she decided to follow and live with her daughter in Boise, Idaho.
Nellie was a loving mother and grandmother who enjoyed spending time with her loved ones. She had a green thumb and loved taking care of her plants and rose bushes, and spent countless hours crocheting. Those that knew Nellie will remember her working on word puzzles, playing candy crush on the tablet, and listening to music.
Nellie is survived by her 4 children Raul Chavez, Gabriel Estrada Jr., Jesus Estrada, and Martha Lopez, 16 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, her 3 sisters; Alicia Candelas, Elsa Moreno, Lidia Moreno, and countless nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her father Gabriel Moreno Valdez, mother Cecilia Nino Lira, brothers Luis Nino Moreno and Efrain Nino Moreno, sister Elodia Moreno Ramirez, and nephew Efrain Moreno Jr.
