  Eva “Evie” Morales Estrada, age 81, was the daughter of the late Rafaela Morales and Manuel Le Grande; and the adopted daughter of Francisco and Isabel Estrada.  She went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in the early morning of Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2021, at her home in Florence, AZ.

   Evie was born on Jan. 16, 1940, in Hayden, AZ. She resided in Hayden, Phoenix, Dudleyville, San Tan Valley and lastly, in Florence, AZ. She was a granddaughter of Josefa Morales, niece of Jose and Rita Morales, cousin to Joe “Kookie” (Jennie) Morales and a sister to Rafael and Jose Aros, all of whom preceded her in death.

   Evie was blessed with the gifts of caring for and loving her family and all of the children around her on Cachorras Street. She loved her pets, loved sewing, embroidery, doing crafts, “making pretty things”, watching old movies and telling jokes.  She was witty, selfless, always giving and sharing what she could.  Evie always put Christ first and lived a moral life. She will be forever missed.

  Evie is survived by her cousins, Felix (Olivia) Morales, Carol (Jerry) Burnam, Rosalie Morales and Robert Morales; and goddaughters, Traci Burnam Borquez, Victoria Morales, Terri Bravo and Arlette Contreras. The many children she helped raise and who remained close to her include Barbara Morales Peraza, Joey Morales, Felix Morales, Michael Morales, Traci Burnam Borquez, Martina Burnam, Amanda Morales Calderon, Michelle Morales Chung, Martin Aguirre and Marisela Aguirre Espinoza; her grandchildren Eva, Julianna, Martina and Ariella Borquez, Aracely and Amaiyah Aguirre, and Michael and Gemma Espinoza. Evie was blessed with many nieces, nephews, family and friends.
