Estela Bridges Obituary

Estela Bridges passed peacefully into heaven on January 12, 2024, at the age of 85. She spent her final days in the company of her family. 

Estela was born on September 16, 1938 in China, Mexico to Glodomiro and Maria Gonzalez. She immigrated and became a U.S. Citizen as a child and grew up in Harlingen, Texas with her eleven siblings. She married Lionel Bridges and they eventually settled in Carlsbad, California in 1971. Estela began college in the late 1970s and went on to become a passionate bilingual educator who ignited a love of learning in her students. 

She was a naturally gifted golfer, a football and baseball fan, a movie-lover, and a wonderful storyteller. She was a loving mother, sister, grandma, great-grandma,  great-great-grandma and friend to anyone she met. She was intelligent, resilient, and funny. She brought joy to everyone who knew her. 

Her family is thankful for all of the babysitting, the funny stories, and the loving “sana colita de rana’s”
