August 8, 1931 – January 18, 2017
It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our beloved Mom, Nan and friend to so many. Estelle passed away very suddenly yet peacefully at St. Patrick’s Home, where she always wanted to spend her final days. Many thanks to the staff at St. Pat’s for being such wonderful caregivers and companions. Youngest of four siblings, Estelle was born in Ottawa on August 8, 1931. Predeceased by her parents, Stella and Patrick Foley; sisters Rita and Phyllis; and brother, Willard. Survived by her brother, Desmond Foley. World’s best mom to Colleen (John) Marconi, Danny (Maria Perez), Sheila (Michael) Castledine and John (Brook) Tierney. Adored Nan to Heather, Victoria, Katelyn, Madelyn and Jennifer. Known to many as Toots, she will be missed dearly by her ever-expanding fan club. Her strong Catholic faith, optimism and general outlook on life is keeping us comforted during this incredibly difficult time. For those wishing to make a donation in her memory, please consider St. Patrick’s Home of Ottawa. Until we meet again… Friends and family wishing to pay respects are invited to join us at Tubman Funeral Home (3440 Richmond Road- Near Bayshore) on Sunday, January 22 from 2:00-5:00 p.m. A funeral mass will be held at Our Lady of Fatima Parish (153 Woodroffe Avenue) on Monday, January 23 at 11:00 a.m.
