Obituary

On the morning of Saturday, June 11, 2022, Virginia Ann Estes of Madrid, IA died at the age of 74 in a tragic house fire.

Virginia was born to Armand and Judith Milani in 1948. She spent her childhood and most of her life in Madrid. After she graduated high school, she moved to Des Moines and became a hairdresser. One night on her way home, she met the love of her life and the father of her children, Gerald Morrison. They married and moved back to Madrid to raise their children. Virginia was always very family oriented. She welcomed everyone with open arms and a heart full of love and compassion. She had 3 biological children and many others that chose to call her Mom. Gerald passed away in 2002. Virginia remarried James Estes, Jr. on May 10, 2010 with whom she lived for the rest of her life.

Virginia found immense joy in taking care of others. She loved tending bar at the VFW which she did for many years. She loved spending time with her family, playing poker, fishing with Bobby C., cutting a rug (even if it was the rug directly under her chair), porch sitting while having endless conversations with her best friend Dan-O, noodle making, coffee swapping, getting her nails done, and most of all, she loved her family. She loved us with everything she had. Unconditionally. And we love her.

Virginia was preceded in death by Armand Milani (father), Judith Milani (mother), Enrico Milani (brother) Gerald Morrison (1st husband) Catherine Milani (aunt) Silvio Milani (uncle) and Claudette Wagner (cousin).

She is survived by her husband James Estes, her children, Vanessa Sprengelmeyer (Todd), Valicity Charo (Cale), Chon Morrison (Shannon), her grandchildren and great grandchildren Jenna, Kasi, Codi, Devon, Rebecca, Chance, Jessica, Sierra, Johnathan, Bearren, Opal, Rocky, Veronica, Mikinah, Braxtin, and Rowan, and extended family Sharina Brangers, Victoria Caldwell, Randy Wilson, Tanya, Hunter, Sarah, Whitney, Zachary, Kayla and Norah.

Virginia, we know you’re feelin’ finer than frog hair now. You may be gone, but you will never be forgotten. Your memory will reside in our hearts forever and always.

Virginia’s family will greet friends from 11:00am to 12:00pm, Tuesday, June 21, 2022 at Sundberg-Kirkpatrick Chapel, 202 S. Market Street, Madrid, Iowa. Her funeral service will begin at noon following the visitation. There will be a procession to Mount Hope Cemetery for interment then a reception at VFW Post #5060 in Madrid.
