Mrs. G. Estelle Tench, 87 of Buckeye, Arizona passed away surrounded by her family on June 15, 2022. She was born October 15, 1934 in Oklahoma to John Butler Wier and Eva Mabel Williams.

Estelle grew up in Southern Arizona and was a resident of the state for 73 years. While working full time and raising two children, she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from Arizona State University. She worked for many years as a tax accountant for the Arizona Public Service Company. After her “retirement,” she and her husband owned and operated the Pine Meadows Country Club in Overgaard, Arizona. Along with filling “head chef” duties, she also kept the country club’s financials in strict order. After selling the country club, Estelle lived in Wickenburg, Arizona where she volunteered at the Habitat for Humanity and did accounting work for a local businessman. When she wasn’t working with numbers, she was an avid reader with many, many books to her credit.

The most important part of Estelle’s life was the time spent loving her family – her children, grandchildren and especially her great-grandchildren were the love of “Gigi’s” life.

Estelle is survived by her husband James Tench, daughter Wendy (Gregory) Brown, and son Jeffrey Tench. She is also survived by two grandchildren: Mackenzie (Mark) McLaughlin and Logan (Kelli) Brown, and four great-grandchildren: Tyson McLaughlin, Vonn Brown, Knox Brown, and Taylor McLaughlin. She was preceded in death by her parents Eva and John Wier.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Gateway for Cancer Research.

  1. God bless you Aunt Estelle. You will be greatly missed. You touched many lives, and are loved by many. You and Uncle Jim welcomed my husband Ron with opened arms for a wonderful visit at your beautiful Wickenburg home. equally, when my oldest brother, Lonnie and I visited you and uncle Jim in Wickenburg, always the gracious host. Your brother, Donald had been our step father, married to Eva, years ago. My brother Stan, was reminiscing about our visit with you guys at the Pine country club when we were kids. God has received a kind, giving, beautiful angel by his side. We celebrate you Aunt Estelle. You will be greatly missed.

  2. Saddened me to here about ET. What a amazing lady. Made some great contributions. A legacy to be proud of. Role model for all. She gave confidence a long time ago which started a great career for me. Miss you ET.
