Memories Timeline


  1. I have known Stella for a long time. I remember how much she liked the coffee when we (as volunteers) brought the coffee up to her floor. Cindy, Stella was much appreciated for her many years of service as a nurse!!!! May God bless and comfort you and your family in the days ahead.

  2. We are deeply sorry about the loss of your mother/grandmother. As you grieve, know that we are remembering and honoring her in prayer.

  3. Cindy, Molly and I are keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. Ms. Stella was a pillar for so many and will be missed. About a year ago, my Mom and your Mom got to visit with each other in Dr. Griffith’s waiting room. It was a beautiful gift to watch theses two friends grasp hands and light up when they saw each other. A connection that went way back and ran deep from their youth. I imagine them now able to catch up completely with no time constraints, health issues or worries of any kind…an everlasting joy! May your many memories of your Mom comfort and sustain you.❤️🙏
    Shelly and Molly Roe

  4. Oh, I am so sorry that I was unable to attend the services due to the weather. I loved your mom very much. She and my mom were first cousins as you know I am amazed that through the video she and mom favored each others so much she has gone on to glory And we will all be joining her soon. But I know how much you will miss her. Love to all.

  5. Mrs. Cindy and Fmly, I'm sorry for the loss of your mom, grandmother, & great- grandmother. When I worked at JALH & see Mrs. Stella, we'd always catch up on family and chitchat. I'll miss her being my neighbor.

  6. Sweet Stella… a life that made a difference to patients, visitors, co-workers, family and friends. She “broke in” then help teach too many nurses to count!
