Sonya Lynn Estes- Age 58, entered into the arms of Jesus on March 30, 2020. She is preceded in death by her father, Joe C. Estes, Sr.; grandparents, John “Doc” Hill and Mildred Hill; Tommy Tucker and Zora Tucker; and Clayton E. Estes and Juanita Estes.
She is survived by her mother, Joan Hill Estes; her brother, Joseph C. Estes, Jr.; and several aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family.
Sonya was an active and faithful member of Charlotte Road Baptist Church. She loved assisting with the Children’s Sunday School Classes throughout the years. Friday nights, she could be found bowling with her father and the church bowling league. She graduated from Baily School (Special Education) at the age of 21, in 1982. Sonya worked as a volunteer at Metro General Hospital where her mother worked for over 50 years. She even had her own street named after her off of Old Hickory Blvd in Bellevue. She was loved by so many, including several of her father’s previous church congregation members. Sonya will be remembered also for singing “He Touched Me” as a blessing to so many.
Out of an abundance of caution, a private family graveside service will be held at Harpeth Hills Memory Gardens with Pastor Joe Frejosky officiating. The family is planning a public Celebration of Sonya’s life for the near future. Please visit www.westharpethFH.com for updates.
