Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • My Aunt Stella was a loving, gracious, funny lady. She was a great poker player and she and her sister, my mother Bella, loved to play cards. One of the things I remember about her is that she had great penmanship. I will miss her very much. May God grant her eternal peace. I love you Aunt Stella. - Posted by: Joan Walker (Niece) on: Jan 15, 2019

  • My Great Aunt Stella was truly one of a kind. I remember when we were living in Winnipeg, we would go to visit and would have a lovely dinner followed by a lively game of cards. My Great Aunt Stella and my Grandma loved to play cards and they never held anything back. I believe it was at that time that she taught my younger brother Robert, or it might have been my younger brother Andrew, the finer points of playing poker. What a great fun time that was. I will miss her dearly but am comforted by the thought that she is in heaven with her family. May God keep you forever in his arms. Love you always, your Great Niece Theresa. - Posted by: Theresa Archibald (Great Niece) on: Jan 14, 2019

  • My aunt Stella was the last of her siblings and was just the sweetest lady. I live in Victoria, BC and spoke to her daily for many years. Her sister Bella ( my mom) were very close and now they are together along with their family once more. She came to Victoria for her 90th birthday and was surrounded by family. Family members and I travelled to Winnipeg for her 100th birthday. What a wonderful day for her. It was a wonderful occasion. We will miss her so very much. I know God is taking good care of you for us. - Posted by: Mrs Barbara Viney (Favourite Aunt in the whole world) on: Jan 12, 2019
