Annie Muriel Estes, age 92, passed away on December 15, 2018. She was preceded in death by her husband of 51 years, James William Estes. Muriel was born and grew up in Colquitt, Georgia. Her husband was in the US Army and she traveled overseas to Japan and France. As a dedicated military wife, she had many responsibilities, many times had to travel alone with her three children. Muriel was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and her family was her life. She lived in Williamsburg for over sixty years, she was Charter Member of Grace Baptist Church, member of the Red Hats. Her passion was gardening in her many flower beds and she could grow anything. One of her many accomplishment was her time as a Colonial Williamsburg costumed interpreter at the Millinery Shop.

She was predeceased by her husband, James W. “Bill” Estes, her son, James “Jimmy” W. Estes and her brother, Clarence “Buddy” Carpenter. She is survived by her daughters, Chicquita McCarthy, Delores “Dorie” Estes, sister, Melissa Conway, daughter-in-law, Charlotte Estes Richardson and grandchildren, Cathy Callis, Scott Callis, Cherie Apperson, MaryJane Allen, Billy Estes, Chuck Phillips, “K.
