Stella was born in Carson City, NV on January 28, 1984 and was lovingly welcomed into the arms of the Lord on 06/12/2019. Stella was a Douglas High and UNLV graduate. Her love of theatre and singing showed in all aspects of her life. She had a five-octave range, participated in numerous theatre projects, commercials, pageants, and many know her as her portrayal of our own local Marilyn Monroe. Her family and friends were her joy. Stella brought so much love and inspiration to everyone she met and touched each heart with the love of an angel. Her big smile lit up a room and she was always sure to make those around her feel special and important. Her fur-babies, Fedor, Kota, Rebel, and Leroy were her pride and joy. She fought a long hard courageous battle with cancer but it was time for her to be released of pain. She was a warrior to the end. She will forever be missed and never forgotten. Our bright shining star will shine for eternity.

She is survived by her father and mother Chuck and Mary (Walker) Baldauskas, her sisters Heather Vecchiarelli (John), Debbie Baldauskas, nephews Nick and Gianni Vecchiarelli, nieces Olivia Vecchiarelli and Natalia Baldauskas, many aunts, uncles, cousins, including her Godmother and aunt- Deborah (Walker) Test, and her love, who was always by her side to the very end, Sili Mafua.

She is preceded in death by her paternal grandparents Frank and Stella (Baldauski) Baldauskas, and maternal grandparents Eugene Walker and Bonnie (Brown) Schiltz.

We would like to publicly thank all of her family, friends, and community with the gracious extension of love, support, and generosity that filled her last days with appreciation and comfort. She truly loved you all!

Beautiful Stella. I’ve known Stella since the day she was born—a dark shock of hair, big beautiful eyes and a name I felt she would have to grow into. And, she did grow into her name with a strong, beautiful and loving personality that fit her perfectly. She was not a person who faded into the background. On the contrary, she shined like a bright star wherever she went; and not an ordinary star, but one that shined so bright that we only got to have her for a little while. Me, my family, will miss her all the days of our lives. My deepest condolences to her family🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Stella was a beautiful person inside and out. She was a talented and kind light in the world. She was there to encourage my mom on her cancer journey while she was battling her own. She left blessings in her wake and she made an impact that will last for generations. Praying for peace, comfort, healing, and love for the family and all that grieve this tragic loss.

I worked with Stella back in 2010 for several months and the joy that she brought instantly touched my heart. She is a very special young lady and will be missed by many. My heart goes to the family, friends and all that knew this inspiring individual. God has her now and thank God she is in a heavenly place with no more pain. Thank you Stella for coming into my life. I will hold you in my heart forever.
