Estela G. Bustamante, 80, passed away peacefully Monday, Feb. 7, 2011, in Alamogordo, where she has been living since retiring from J.J. Newberry's in Los Angeles. Before retiring, Estela lived and raised her beloved family in Hollywood, Calif., where she learned the cosmetic trade and became enamored of many of the local movie stars of the era, confessing to her most intimate of friends that she loved Gregory Peck, as an actor and humanitarian.
Estela, in her younger days, enjoyed dancing and gardening and was always a friend to all in need of a warm heart and a sympathetic ear. She was quick to comfort and always ready with womanly advice and moral support.
Estela is survived by her brothers Jorge and Javier Gavira; sisters Luz Gavira Vd. De Rizo, and Emma Ruiz and her husband, Salvador, of Mexico City, and their families; brother Oscar Bustamante and wife, Barbara; her loving children Roci Candelaria and husband, Alex, of Alamogordo; son Ruben Bustamante, of Los Angeles; grandchildren Shemain Avina and her husband, Jorge, of Alamogordo, Jerry Valdes and wife, Hiedi, from San Diego, Calif., and Conrad Asher and Denae Michelle Bustamante, from Burbank, Calif.; great-grandchildren Jorge, Abram, Martin and Jazmin Avina; Reina and Eva Valdes; and numerous affectionate nephews and nieces in Mexico, California and Washington.
The rosary will be recited at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 11, 2011, at St. Francis de Paula Catholic Church in Tularosa by Mr. and Mrs. Chavez. Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 12, 2011, at St. Francis de Paula Catholic Church with Father Max Hottle, O.F.M., as celebrant.
