Culver City Observer -

Services Held For Estel Reed


April 16, 2015

Estel Reed, a 68 year resident of Culver City, died April 4 at the age of 94.

Estel raised three children and was a quintessential mid-century homemaker for her family, including husband Westel "Wes" Reed who passed away in 2000.

Estel was born in 1921 on a farm in northwest Missouri and grew up during the Great Depression with her twin sister and two brothers. After graduating a local high school, she journeyed to California before WWII along with her high school sweetheart and was married prior to her husband joining the Navy.

After the war the couple returned and settled in Culver City and purchased their one-and-only house in 1957 in the Sunkist Park tract.

Estel's son Wes Junior worked at the Rollerdrome skating rink, and daughters Robin and Cheryl were active in Girl Scouts and Job's Daughters Bethel #2. She supported their interests and saw all three children graduated from Culver City High.

Estel is the last of her four siblings. She is survived by her son Wes Reed Jr, and daughters Robin Reed and Cheryl Reed. She also leaves her grandchildren Brian Reed and DeAnn Aguilar; and great-grandchildren Kyle Reed, James Aguilar and Alex Aguilar.

Graveside service was held on April 9 preceding interment at Valley Oaks Memorial Park, Thousand Oaks.
