Amanda Estes Launius took her last steps on earth after a long sickness from liver disease. She relocated to Heaven Sunday morning, August 30, 2020. Her husband, Billy Launius, will be lost without her by his side.
Amanda was kind-hearted, good-natured and taught us all valuable life lessons. She was a master cook in the kitchen; she loved good parties and was compassionate and a life-long care giver.
Amanda Estes was born on November 2, 1959. The youngest of seven children, only two sisters remain: Cheryl Estes (Cherry) Batson and Donna Estes James. Amanda also leaves behind nieces and nephews who adored her; countless rescued cats, dogs, and other critters; and her world-famous King Ranch Chicken and Macaroni & Cheese recipes.
Despite the hard times, she lived life joyfully. She loved her family and friends thoroughly. She leaves a lifetime of love, laughs, and memories.
A Memorial Service will be scheduled at a later date.
Arrangements entrusted to A Natural State Funeral Service, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas. 501-982-3400
