Maxine “Toni” Estep, age 90, passed away Friday, January 11, 2019 at Primrose Retirement Community in Mansfield surrounded by her family.
Toni was born November 29, 1928 to parents Harry & Martha (Poole) Weaver in Mansfield and graduated from Union High School.
On April 30, 1950, she married William R. Estep and they shared 41 wonderful years of marriage until he passed away in 1991. They are now together again. Toni and Bill owned and operated Suburban Trailer Center for over 30 years.
A lifelong member of Park Avenue Baptist Church (now Mosaic), Toni volunteered with their clothing ministry and monthly community meals. She found great joy in flowers and kept a lovely summer flower garden each year. She was an excellent baker and made all sorts of delicious pies and cookies to bless others by giving them away.
Above all else, Toni dearly LOVED her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids with all her heart. She will be remembered for her sharp mind, loving & giving heart, and will be dearly missed by family and friends.
She is survived by children Jean (Jim) Reed of Lexington, Kris Bechtel of Mansfield, and Bill (Karen) Estep of Mansfield; grandchildren Tim Reed (Regina Sabo), Levi Papst, Kimberly (Joe) Strassell, Jessica (Justin) Thomas, Will Estep (Danielle Pennington) and Mike Bechtel; great-grandchildren Olivia Strassell, Ella Strassell, Alaina Strassell, Taylor Papst, Hunter Papst, Landon Papst, Ally Bechtel, Ashleigh Bechtel, and one on the way; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to her loving husband William Estep, she was preceded in death son-in-law Jeff Bechtel, sister Mary Elizabeth Wilson, brother Robert Weaver, and infant brother David Weaver.
The Estep family wishes to thank the nurses and staff at Primrose and Kindred Hospice for the excellent and loving care given to their mom.
