Stella was one of a kind! She was magnetic. Friends, family and strangers alike were drawn to her. Stella had a knack for one-liners, they would leave you laughing for days. She was the life of the party and always down for the next casino trip. Despite never possessing a drivers license, her life took her around the world and she was always on the go. While she will be greatly missed by those who knew her, she has left with us enough memories to last a lifetime.
She worked many years at the Smart Shop in Punxsutawney.
