  1. Dear Stella:

    What can I say except that you left a lasting mark on all of our lives, very much positive, in my humble opinion. I always saw you with a smile on your face and you always had a wonderful way of laughing at even the corniest of my jokes when others could only groan….and, in retrospect, I certainly could not blame them for that!

    May you be remembered by all of us as that beautiful matriarch who brought so many wonderful people into the world (a small city of people, by most estimates), directly and indirectly. You loved life, your family, and people in general….

    You will always be with us, remembered through our memories and photos taken throughout your life. May you rest in peace and know that your family and friends shall always respect and love you til we meet again.

  2. So sorry to hear of Stella’s passing.
    We will always remember her beautiful smile. She will be missed.
    Love and thoughts to all of you.

  3. To my cousins. The last of our parents is now gone, sorry about your loss. The memory I have of your Mom is one as an adult. I was so inspiried by her love of travel and all the exciting places she visited, including her trip to Israel. Like her, I have that itch.
    Love, Meg
