She was born in Rosenburg, Manitoba on February 20, 1923. At an early age she decided to move to Winnipeg where she found employment at Eaton's. Always creative and talented in culinary skills, Stella worked in the store's cake decorating department. She loved nature and the outdoors and in retirement enjoyed time spent at their trailer where she tended to her vegetable and flower gardens, fed the birds and especially enjoyed blueberry picking. Trips back to the family homestead in the summertime were always enjoyable and meant a lot to her. A pillar of strength and inspiration to all, Stella will be remembered for her wit and sense of humour and gentle caring nature. She will be dearly missed. The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of Fred Douglas Lodge for the compassionate care, the respect and dignity they provided to Stella during her brief stay.
