Notes: Our family matriarch has earned her wings. Growing up in Brooklyn afforded her a wild vocabulary as many witnessed. Low and behold she married a truck driver. They moved to the Island and raised 3 children. Jerry, Joy, and Mindy. Mom worked hard her entire life. She helped run her husband’s trucking company (she was the woman behind the man) yet always had time for family, mahjong, canaster, bingo, poker, and craps. She defied all odds and enjoyed 92 years of ups and downs – Including the drivers license facilitator jumping out of the car, told her she passed, avoiding another encounter. She helped lead a Cub Scout, Girl Scout, and 4 H group enriching many children’s lives. Estelle leaves behind a son Jerry Saltzman, daughter Joy Saltzman-Murphy (Jim Murphy), 3 grandchildren Lenny Murphy, Erika Saltzman, and James Murphy Jr., one greatgrand child Macyn Iritano; sister-in-law Fern Nuccio and children; Niece Sheila Brayman Borgese, nephews Robert Brayman and wife Lisa , Howie Brayman and wife Glenda ,Zve Brayman and wife Shosh, along with many great nieces and nephews. Additionally many dedicated friends. She was preceded in death by her mom Bella Brayman dad Max Brayman 2 brothers Seymour and Jack Brayman, sister Lena Edelstein. Her devoted husband Leonard Saltzman and precious daughter Mindy Olynyk.
