Family-Placed Death Notice

ESTES, Mary MARY "TUT" ESTES Mary "Tut" Estes, 92, formerly of Vinings, died January 3. Born Mary Josephine Evans on November 29, 1920, Tut grew up in Hapeville as the sixth of seven children in a remarkably close-knit family. A natural beauty, she was twice crowned "Miss Hapeville", in 1937 and 1938. She worked for ten years as a secretary at Delta Air Lines, where she met her husband Jack Estes, a pilot. Tut and Jack enjoyed traveling, tennis, and running well into their 70s, and Tut also loved to take long, early morning walks in their Cochise neighborhood. A woman of kindness, beauty, laughter, faith, and strength, she will be missed by the many who loved her. Surviving relatives include her devoted husband of 60 years, Jack, her daughter Leigh and husband Jeff Schlichting, and their two daughters, Nicole and Emma. A memorial service will be held Saturday, January 12, at 2:00 PM, at Presbyterian Village (Lakeview Chapel), 2000 East-West Connector, Austell. Further details:
