Just learned of Estelle’s passing. She was a great lady with lots of energy and smiles for everyone. She was my mother’s friend. Last time I saw her was in Sunday School when I went with Mama(Isabell Bates). My prayers are with you🙏

I am so sorry for your loss. Estelle will always be remembered as a great teacher and friend. She made me feel so welcome to Berea Elementary when I first started teaching!

Dale and Family. I came to Greenville in 1982 and attended Bible School there on North Parker. I would love to walk up and down the road between the school and your mother's home. Your mother always had such a lovely, big smile and greeting for us "walkers". I married and stayed here and Mrs. Looper continued to be a joyful neighbor, interested in others. John has appreciated being her neighbor these past ten years...kinda like his own Grandmother. May you know the comfort of the Lord Jesus.

Dale, Lynn and Family, We will surely miss "Cuz" Estelle. Her "Southerlin Smile" brought joy wherever she was. Cousin Edna and Estelle were always so much fun to talk to, and when my mother was there, they shared so many teen memories. Estelle was a gracious, kind, intelligent, Christian Southern lady. We will all miss her, but are better off, to have known Estelle Southerlin Looper. Larry and Silvia
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I am saddened to hear of the passing of Estelle. When I lived in Traveler's Rest, we would share a golf cart together. We played with Charlie and Earline Robert's. She was a joy to be with and know. Estelle loved God, her family and friends. She will be missed. I was honored to be her friend. My prayers are with her family in this difficult time.

Cynthia B. Hyatt left a message on April 2, 2022:
Estelle has been a dear teacher friend and one whom I have admired for her energy and for being one of the best teachers I have ever known. Her students were extremely blessed to have had her guidance, as well as be the recipients of her knowledge. I will miss our telephone conversations and the times we have shared for lunch or dinner. She always had the most wonderful smile, even when she was not feeling well. She will always remain in my fondest memories from the old Berea Elementary School.
