GREAT Aunt Stella,
Sooo many memories with you in my life - the Pennsylvania Dutch trips , your worlds best pistachio cake , New Year’s Eve in Atlantic City, trips to AC with you and Lottie , the FART detector and how we cried we laughed so hard , chocolate martini’s ( OK maybe just one more !) yes , the deer do have sheds . I will always remember how you were there for me after my Mom died and you filled some of that empty space and mostly you loved me and Grace more then we could ever have imagined and I thank you for your acceptance . I will miss you more than words can say . Rest In Peace .

I am so very blessed that Joanne chose me and that I became part of your wonderful family. Having you as my aunt is one of the treasures of my life . I have such wonderful memories of our times together whether here while you were in NJ or when you moved to Vegas . The love and laughter seemed to never end - bingo, in and out, Dick’s last resort (!!!) , scratch offs and of course our late night (here!) phone calls these last years. I will miss your presence but your smile and love will warm my heart forever. Rest gently Aunt Stella.

Stella was truly one of a kind. A spunky spitfire. Kristy and I have been best friends since 12, I've steadily gotten to know Stella over the years, and it's been a blessing. She never held back, she was a ball full of fun, and was always willing to use some buffet credits on me! When Stella was still in NJ, I always enjoyed our one on one visits when I would go see her to pick something up that Kristy or Barbara sent back with her. We never rushed it. We sat and talked. She would catch me up on all the latest. One thing was always clear. SHE LOVED her family with her whole being. She cherished every one of you- Barbara, Tony, Kristy, Joe, Frankiann, AJ, and Gio. I will never forget her. My heart breaks for you all during this time. Please know you all have been in my prayers and will continue to be. I wish I could have been there to support you all. Sending you all my love and hugs!

I am missing you already. You drove me nuts over the years but I can truly say that we were friends. You were as good hearted as they come and always had a positive attitude about everything. I couldn't have asked for a better mother-in law-law. Rest in peace and we will come and visit you.

Love ,

We’re so sorry to hear of Aunt Stella’s passing. We were happy she was able to come to New Jersey for our wedding and that we got to see her when she visited for Thanksgiving a few years ago. Thinking of you all.

I was blessed to spend and share so many memories over the years with you. Marrying your granddaughter, DisneyLand trips, Cruises to the Bahamas, Birthday parties, Bingo nights, trick or treat extravaganzas, sleep over nights with the great grand children just to name a few. I am so grateful that my children got to share so many memories with you that they will remember for a life time and hopefully share with their kids someday. Thank you for all the love, passion, advice, guidance, wisdom and traditions you have passed on to us throughout the years. I love you and I know you will continue to watch over our family in heaven.

Hugs and Kisses,

Frankiann, Anthony & Giovani Bompartito

Great Grandma Ma,
We will all miss you so much! We loved all the fun memories we made together. Vacations, shopping for toys and clothes, playing games, watching movies and getting ice cream from the ice cream truck. We are all so happy we had so many fun years with you.

Love Always,
Frankiann, AJ & Giovani

The Love Between A Grandmother & Granddaughter Is Forever. 💜 Hold that pendant tight forever Ma and I will hold mine. You will be missed dearly but you are resting so peacefully now. Mommy and Daddy sent you off with such class. You looked absolutely beautiful and everything about today was perfect. Today was hard but all the amazing memories we have will get me through it. Our last hug you told me you’ll be ok. I honestly believe that you are. I’ll miss you Ma. I’ll look for you in the clouds.

“Goodbyes are not forever, Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I'll miss you, Until we meet again.”

Love Always,

Such a beautiful ceremony. I’m sure Aunt Stella would have loved it. My condolences to Barbara, Tony, Kristy, Joe, Frankiann, Anthony and Giovani. I know how much she loved you all. I often think about when I was Little and we would visit on Walnut Street. She was always fun to be around. So happy she spent Thanksgiving with us a couple years ago. Where she was the life of the party. Aunt Stella, Rest In Peace. You will be missed and thought of often. Love you
