Diana and Family ~ We are so very sorry for your loss. Stella was such a lovely, lovely lady and it was a joy to do her hair while she was in Maple Crest. I enjoyed her sayings like when there was still snow cleaning on one side of a roof. It was so interesting when apple season and apple butter making time was at hand. They'd cook it all down in a big pot or kettle under an open fire outside. I think it was cooked in a copper pot . And how they dried their fruit was really most interesting! She is resting and is healthy. Again we are so sorry for your loss. Know that you and all Stella's family will be in our prayers. Don and Gloria

I will always remember Stella as a very loved lady who loved her children and grandchildren a lot. I remember her cooking at the hospital. We all looked forward expecially to her catfish lunches. she made the best catfish dinner. Love and prayers to her family and friends.
