ODESSA - Paralee "Estelle" (Austin) Crump, 86 years of age, passed away in her home in Tyler, Texas and went to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on the morning of July 15, 2021.
Mrs. Crump was born May 14, 1935, to Clifton L. Austin and Eve (Eva) Bittle. On January 15, 1951, Estelle married Arvel Ray Crump and had one son, Billy R. Crump. After Billy was involved in a motorcycle accident, Estelle committed her life to care for him. For 50-years, she dedicated herself to Billy and provided meticulous care for her son. Even though Mrs. Crump birthed only one child, she raised many more that still call her maw.
Mrs. Crump is survived by her nieces, nephews and many friends and family that loved her dearly and who will miss her very much.
Estelle often talked of friends and family who helped and prayed for them over the years including Pastor Clydel & Freda Chapman. Many friends and family assisted Mrs. Crump on a weekly and even daily basis over the years, and she wished to express her appreciation for their help.
Visitation will be held on Thursday, July 22, 2021, from 2:00 PM until 9:00 PM at Acres West Funeral Chapel. Services are set for 10:00 AM Friday morning, July 23, 2021, at Northside Baptist Church of Odessa with Brother Clydel Chapman officiating. Interment will follow at Los Angeles Gardens section of Ector County Cemetery in Odessa, Texas where she will be laid to rest beside her son, her husband, and her little sister.
