Esta Lea O'Brien passed from her earthly bondage to her heavenly home on July 24, 2020, at age 87. She dearly loved her family and friends. She was comforted at the end by Joseph and Christa O'Brien, her son and his wife. She is preceded in death by her parents Timothy and Nora Stringer, her husband James O'Brien and beloved daughter Lisa Marie O'Brien-Hernandez.

In addition to being a dedicated and loving mother and wife, Lea was a daughter, sister, aunt, widow, valued employee, middle-aged woman, mother-in-law, retiree, grandmother, friend, gardener, thrift store devotee.
