Aunt Stella was always so caring and sweet. Over the years she was very open and always interested in what was going on with our family. She was really a gem. I too remember staying out at the farm as a youngster and was treated like a royal guest. I remember riding on the tractor with Uncle Wayne, and watching uncle & grandpa chop wood. And waking to cattle by my bedroom window. Sweet memories. Sending my love to Donna and Pam and the entire family. Mark

To the family of Stella,
I was a member of St Paul's for years and remember your parents, maybe you as small girls. Your aunt Maxine married my Dad's brother Harold Holkan so my Mother and your Mother would visit of family and also helped on some of the same committees at church. My Mother passed 3 years ago living at Windsor Manor also. Prayers and Blessing to all of you. Nancy Eppard Pilcher

I am sorry to hear of your loss. Stella was such a nice lady and enjoyed our conversations very much. She was always supportive. At the Luau at Windsor last fall we had a good time listening to the music. I remember one summer I stayed overnight with them on the farm west of the folks place. Stella fixed bacon, tomato, and egg sandwiches. It was so good. We never put a tomato on a bacon and egg sandwich before. I think of her whenever I have any kind of BLT. Lots of fond memories of our families together having picnics, 4th of July celebrations, trips to Pine Lake, Beads Lake and just messing around at each others places. Glad I got to connect with both of you since those days. RIP Wayne and Stella
