Estelle Lee Ruleman Obituary

In Loving Memory of Estelle Lee Ruleman

Estelle Lee Ruleman, age 86, passed away peacefully on February 16, 2024, surrounded by her loving family. She was born December 21, 1937 to Dorothy N. Poe (Bauer) and Edgar Allen Poe in Laurel, Maryland.  She was a beloved Mother, Sister, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Great-Great-Grandmother, and cherished friend.

Estelle's early years were dedicated to family, where she lovingly embraced the roles of motherhood and homemaker. In her professional journey, she worked as a receptionist at the Fort Myers Press, made lifelong friends as a bartender at various locations, was a secretary at A&M Glass in Southern Maryland, and a clerk at Walmart. Her genuine kindness endeared her to many, and she gracefully concluded her career in the cash office for Walmart in Vero Beach, FL.

Beyond work, Estelle found joy in attending family functions, gardening, and watching her favorite western TV shows. Outdoors, she delighted in boating on the lake, fishing and catching crabs in the Chesapeake Bay, and always enjoyed being outdoors paying special attention to her many plants that surrounded her home.  A fervent sports enthusiast, she passionately cheered for her favorite football teams, the Washington Redskins and Georgia Bulldogs. Her love for friendly competition extended to playing pool with family and friends.

Estelle is survived by her brothers, Floyd Poe of Athens, GA, and Lynn Poe (Paulette) of Lake Worth, FL, along with her sister, Nancy Grace (Tom) of Athens, GA. She is preceded in death by her parents, her sister Marie McAllister, her brother Dennis Poe, and her son-in-law Jim Graham.

Estelle leaves behind a legacy embraced by her loving daughters: Patti Albertsen (Roy) of Lincolnton, GA, Donna Graham of Orange Park, FL, Sandy Guy-Good (Haze) of Vero Beach, FL, Wendy Ruleman (Darren Buckler) of Mechanicsville, MD, Jodi Davidson of Vero Beach, FL, and loving son Brian Ruleman (Denise Dixon) of Vero Beach, FL. She is survived by her 23 grandchildren, 40 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren, each a testament to the love she shared with them. Estelle also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, and extended family members.

Estelle celebrated a life beautifully lived, filled with love, laughter, and cherished moments. May her memory be a source of comfort and inspiration for all who were touched by her grace. Estelle will be deeply missed and forever remembered in our hearts.
