Steve and Family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Stella. My heart goes out to you all. I would have been at the service but I have been on vacation visiting family in Iowa. You will have many many wonderful memories that will keep Stella close to you and in your heart forever. I met Stella several times at Martin Marietta/Lockheed Martin functions and she was always fun to visit with.

My sympathy and thoughts and prayers to all.

What a beautiful tribute to a beautiful soul! So blessed to be able to call you friend! Loved all of our times spent laughing at bingo ( you had the best sense of humor) and in later years talking on Facebook about all of our beautiful grandchildren and reminiscing about old times! Rest easy dear friend! ❤️

This is a beautiful tribute to a beautiful lady! We enjoyed our friendship and moments together, especially through texting and Facebook. We were bonded through our children’s marriage. Not only did we acquire an amazing daughter in law but her awesome parents as friends. Stella’s smile will always be remembered with love, her kindness and generosity will be her Legacy. Stella you are loved❤️ And will be missed!

THE most beautiful Tribute I have ever seen! Stella's love and passion for her family is shown in each and every beautiful photo. I had the honor to share with her & Steve the wedding of Kaci and Jared. Her warmth, her joy, her love was an amazing blessing to share. We will miss her each and every day, and honor her by keeping her memory alive in all of us,

Our family's thoughts and prayers go out to your family. Our hearts ache with and for you.

I only know Ms. Bugay though her daughter, Katie. And, Katie is an intelligent, hard-working, and caring woman. A phenomenal human being. No doubt Ms. Bugay played a large role in Katie's growth and development. The world is a better place because of Stella through Katie.
