    It was an honor and a joy to know Stella through the Rogerson Adult Day Health Center. She took pleasure recalling times spent singing, working at Jordan Marsh, a source of great pride and fulfillment, and of course her loving feelings for her husband, daughters, grandson and friends and extended family. I will miss this dear heart sorely.

    My condolences goes out to you, Anthony and the rest of your family. Your mother lit up the room when she enter the Community Center. She will be missed by every person especially me. My second mother that gave me some good advices about family, relationships, work and love. This is why we came up with the “No Complain Zone” for our Senior Club. Bingo was Stella’s game and everyone knows this. Thanks Stella for all the great memories we shared together.

    Stella I know that you are resting in peace right now. I am going to miss you terribly and you will never be far from my thoughts and always in my prayers. My only wish was that we could have met many years sooner than we did. You brightened my life at Rogerson Adult Health Center and when we got together and went out for lunch and shopping. I loved our little adventures and I love you. Rebecca and Anthony you both are in my thoughts and prayers. I know how much you each meant to Stella. My heart goes out to both of you. With love and affection
