Mom was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. She came to Canada in 1946 as a war bride where she and Dad raised their family in Winnipeg. Mom was employed by the Hudson's Bay Company, retiring in 1988. During their retirement, Mom and Dad enjoyed many wonderful years travelling to Europe, Texas, and Hawaii.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Victoria General Hospital and Misericordia Health Centre for their compassionate care.
Cremation has taken place and at Stella's request a private graveside service will be held at a later date.

  • 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
