Iris Lopez

Stamford Advocate - - Obituaries/news -

On Tues­day, Novem­ber 27, 2018 the life of Olga “Iris” Lopez was trag­i­cally cut short at the age of 36. Iris was born on June 25, 1982 to Marino and Norma Estrella of Mil­ford, CT, for­merly of Stam­ford, CT. She was the third of their four chil­dren. Iris was al­ways a vi­brant soul. She was truly loved by all who knew her be­cause of her gen­tle, car­ing na­ture and her witty charm. She wore her beau­ti­ful smile daily, no mat­ter her cir­cum­stances, and she loved to sing and dance. She didn’t share her voice with many peo­ple, but those who heard it will tell you that it was some­thing spe­cial, just like her mother’s. But her great­est joy came from her chil­dren. Iris had 4 chil­dren of her own and a step­daugh­ter, but to her, there was no dis­tinc­tion; they were all the source of her light and she loved them with her whole heart and soul. Though her life ended well be­fore it’s time, we can find com­fort in her very name. I re­cently learned that the iris flower can be a sym­bol of faith, hope, courage, wis­dom and ad­mi­ra­tion. Our sis­ter Iris will be greatly missed. We hope to learn from her ex­pe­ri­ences, to find strength as we face the pain of her un­timely demise and will for­ever ad­mire the pure­ness of her heart. Iris is pre­de­ceased by her fa­ther, Marino “Pepe” Estrella. She is sur­vived by her chil­dren Richie Ojeda, Cory Lopez, Hec­tor Lopez, Iris Lopez, and Ka­day­jah Lopez, her mother Norma Estrella, her brother Lin­coln Estrella and sis­ters Irene Ser­rano and Rosie Estrella, as well as her grand­moth­ers, aunts, un­cles, nieces and neph­ews and count­less cousins. Ser­vices will be held on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 8, 2018, be­tween 1:00-5:00 p.m. at Bosak Fu­neral Home, 453 Ship­pan Av­enue, Stam­ford, CT 06902.
