Looking for someone else and ran across your moms notice. I’m from Baden and went to Ebenezer with you kids and played with you many years. So sorry to hear, but you had many wonderful years with your mom. You were so fortunate to have such a wonderful mom. I’m sure she will be missed, we lost our mom 3 hrs ago. I keep in touch with Billy Lesch on fb and will let him know.

To my cousins: Ron, Lois, and Tim, I am so sorry about the loss of Aunt Stella. She was always so great, sweet and funny and caring. She was always my favorite aunt, and we always loved visiting her when we were in town. Mom considered her her best friend. Love to you all, knowing that she is at peace at last. Cheryl and Rand

Aunt Stella was a very special person to so many of us. I always looked forward to seeing her and talking with her on the phone. (I especially enjoyed hearing her thoughts on the latest political events.) She will be sorely missed.
