She was such a sweet and lovely lady. The energy that she had was unbelievable! Always with a kind word and smiles. It was an honour to have known her. Will miss you!!! Line - Posted by: Line Courcelles (Friend from the block ) on: Sep 18, 2021
Having found Stella whilst doing my family tree I took great pleasure in calling her on a Sunday evening and listening to her memories. My mother and Stella were full cousins. She loved talking about the North East of England where she still has family. Even at 96 her memory was amazing, I will miss these moments, I only wish I could have met this amazing women, but hope to meet her family when I visit Canada in the future. Margaret, her cousin in England remembers her with such fondness. Our thoughts are with Pat, Jane, Bill and the rest of her family. - Posted by: Diane Ralph (Cousin (once removed)) on: Sep 18, 2021
