Helen and family, I really enjoyed working with Stella at Ivy Tech. She was a kind and caring lady who was willing to assist students, staff and faculty in any way she could. She is at peace now. Prayers as you mourn your loss. Mary Hess

Stella was a joy and a faith filled blessing. I first met her while serving on a Kairos outside team. While talking, she realized she knew one of my daughters (Ashley) and was kind to share how the two of them shared faith building experiences. She was a faith role model for me and all who really knew her. She is rejoicing in heaven now and will be there to welcome us home someday. I loved Stella and I will miss her.

Dear Helen and Other Family Members of Stella,

What a pleasure it was to work with Stella for many years at Ivy Tech. Although we were in different departments and buildings, it was delightful to run into Stella when she would be picking up the mail and doing countless other necessary duties, which she accomplished without hesitation or complaint. She always had a smile, a greeting, and a caring comment.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathies at this time as you mourn the loss of a precious person.

God's Blessings,
Louella C. Komuves

Stella was a true lady and a wonderful friend. I first met her at St Anthony’s beginners on Saturday mornings. Always a smile and always a hug. I will miss you my friend. Save a seat for me.

I met Stella at the age of six years old. Her daughter Jacque and I became like sisters I spent a lot of time at their house and felt like part of the family. She always stressed to us girls to always have our relationship strong. Anytime I saw her even at the age of 50 she still would say you to stay strong. I promise mother Stella we will. Now rest no more pain and keep smiling . We will all have hole in our heart without you.

Stella was a great person and I enjoyed working with her. I would always talk with her when she came to our office and enjoyed our conversations. She will be missed by many.

I met Stella when I first started going to St James West and she made me feel so comfortable coming to church. I'm glad to have known Stella.
