Estelle, also known as “Pat” to friends and family, was a fixture in the Larchmont business community for over 20 years, where she took over L. Boutique, a bespoke women’s apparel shop, from her father, Louis, upon his death in 1973.
Born Estelle Littman to Louis and Bessie Littman, Estelle grew up in the Pelham Parkway section of the Bronx, NY with her three brothers, Irving, Gilbert and Julie (all deceased). Estelle was an honors graduate of Christopher Columbus High School and attended New York University. She later worked for the Equitable Life Insurance Company and subsequently joined her father in business, modeling his apparel designs in major magazines and publications. She married Horace Malinger (later annulled) and Albert Hara in 1963 (died 1974) and remained in Pelham Parkway. Hara gave birth to her only child, Mitchell, who survives her. The funeral service will be on Friday, September 18, 2015 at 1:00 pm, at Riverside Memorial Chapel, 76 St. and Amsterdam Ave, Manhattan.
