Stella was a woman of great faith, who loved her family (especially the grandkids and great grandkids who kept her eternally young). Gardening was a great passion (she loved to watch plants grow), as was embroidery, quilting, watching birds in the yard, reading, and taking long car rides through the countryside. Stella was also a wonderful cook, who never needed to follow a recipe to make something delicious, bread was her specialty.

She is preceded in death by her parents, husband Fritz in 2013, daughter, Sharon and granddaughter, Amber, siblings, Sylvester, Urban, Donnie, Jean Cater, Doreen Festerman, and Alquin.
Private family Entombment will be at St. Mary’s Help of Christian Cemetery in St. Augusta. A memorial Mass will be at a future date to be announced at St. Mary’s Help of Christian’s Church after restrictions have been removed. Arrangements are being entrusted to the Williams Dingmann Family Funeral Home in St. Cloud.
The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to St. Croix Hospice for their exceptional and compassionate care and to Fr. Mathew Crane for his caring visits.
