It was so sad to hear the news of Stella's passing. It was always such a pleasure to see her each summer when we arrived at the cottage. I loved it when she introduced me to others as 'Paul Moffatt's cousin'. She will greatly missed. Sincerely, Liz

We were so saddened to learn of Stella's death. In Church the Sunday before our leaving for Arizona, we hugged her tightly and ask her to take good care of herself over the winter as we looked so forward to seeing her upon our return in the spring. She was the true definition of a "lady" and we were so proud to have been a part of her life. God now holds her in His loving arms.
Our condolences and sympathy are extended to her family....she was so loved by all who knew her.
