It is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of your mother. Stella taught me so much about my job as a young new teacher assistant at Robertson school. She took me under her wing and with great patience taught me not only skills of the job but general life skills. She will always hold a special place in my heart, she was an amazing woman with a kind heart! - Posted by: Cheryl Yarish (Co-worker) on: Jul 30, 2022
