Dave, Sue, Jordan, BenjaminAunt Stella was a beautiful person inside and out. We will miss our lunches with her, where we would reminisce about family history, stories of her and my dad growing up and life in general. You will be dearly missed.
Marsha AllenDiane, I am so sorry for your loss of your Mother. Although I didn't know her well, I knew your grandmother from my salon. Your grandmother spoke fondly of Stella, and also of you. You will miss your mom, but she will always be in your heart. My thoughts are with you .
George AnasDiane and family: it was a pleasure to know Stella who was very outgoing and full of energy. We first met when Gord was with the Molson crew in London. May her memory be eternal.
Lynda and Clare FolkemaDiane and Family, Our heartfelt sympathy in the loss of your Mom. Stella was our next door neighbour for over 25 years, until her latest adventure in her apartment. Most importantly, Stella was also a very dear friend to myself and my husband. Stella and I had a special bond that life circumstances cannot change. We understood each other, she was like a friend, mother, sister and counsellor to me over the years and I treasure our time together. We enjoyed pizza nights together, went to Stratford to watch the release of the swans, and shared life’s highs and lows with each other. Our last time together was for lunch in her dining room just before we all retreated into isolation with covid. I pray that it will bring you some comfort to know that we will be missing our dear Stella and will always hold our memories of her in our hearts.
