Estella Yvette HallmarkEstella Yvette Hallmark

Estella Yvette Hallmark, 52, of Franklin, N.C., went to visit Heaven on Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014.

Her favorite thing is spending time with her precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and her favorite place is her prayer closet, where He shows her great and mighty things which she knew not (Jeremiah 33:3). She loves spending time with her family and friends, sharing testimonies of all the great things God has done. She also enjoys hiking, horseback riding, going out to eat, and doing crafts with her daughters. No matter what’s going on in her life, good or bad, she trusts God to work it out for her good and to His glory, for He has promised that, “The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of Hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of Hosts.” (Haggai 2:9).

Born in Dallas, Texas, she is the daughter of Vernon and Billie Cowart.
