Stella and Jim married in Detroit in 1973, moved to Alabama, and in 1993 moved here to Danville where she immersed herself in the beauty and culture of her new surroundings. Stella was a devout Catholic and became a member of Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church where she volunteered in many ways. She also had a special devotion to Padre Pio. Stella had a great love for life and enjoyed many hobbies – tennis, line dancing, bridge, gardening, flower arranging, and watching KU basketball. She had a special love for children and animals, always seeming to know just what they needed! She was a friend to all and always quick to ask others how they were doing….she will be greatly missed.
