What a lovely video Chris. So sorry I was not there. My sister and I sent flowers separately. I want to say Stella was so giving and sweet. I can’t believe how much energy she had at 97. When I met her, I asked her what her secret was and she said whenever she felt tired she would tell her self that she was not tired and went on. She definitely will be missed 😍🙏

After a long moving day to 119 Central Ave, amidst boxes and chaos, our doorbell rang. It was Stella, our next door neighbor, with a tray, complete with silverware and napkins, of Greek food to welcome us to the neighborhood. What a delight to have this greeting and a meal! I discovered this was not isolated for Stella. It's the way she operated. She touched many hearts in her very long life! Many condolences to her family. ~ Charlotte Beck Faulk

Miss Stella will be deeply missed! She was truly one of the most genuine people I have ever met. Always smiling , always showing her Christian beliefs and always had a great story to tell! Stellas personality was one I will always cherish & remember & she was very caring and loving to anyone that crossed her path. I can say I am very honored to have known her. Her presence will be missed but her spirit will forever be present. Our community has lost a very special lady. May her memory be eternal. Sending my prayers and condolences to the family in this time of need. Keeping you all in my prayers.

You were such a blessing and joy to be near! Your zest and joy for life were unmatched and you radiated love to those around you. We know your presence will be sorely missed here on Earth but also know… you will be dancing and be the life of the party on this next journey you are on. Condolences, love and prayers to all who will miss you here.

Stella was everyone’s favorite friend and mentor! I loved Bible study with Stella because she would share life stories and excellent marriage advice from her life with George!

Miss Stella was the most genuine person I ever met. Her heart was so firmly planted in her faith and she always showed her Christian beliefs through her life choices. Stella was funny, caring, humble, and had a sense of devotion like no other. I’m proud to have known her and to call her friend. The world has lost a truly special lady. May her memory be eternal. 🙏
