    Long time friend and dear sweet person … Stella …..we were friends at Lutheran High School and here it is 2020 and friendship is renewed and strengthened by “Lunch Bunch” connections. Stella was a big part of our lunches, before her many
    physical problems claimed her time and strength. Byron was her ever faithful support – We will miss you but you ;have joined
    so many of our friends and families to be face to face with our loving Savior – may you rest in peace – you will be missed!!

    Stella was a classmate of ours at Lutheran High School. It was great getting back together years later with the Class of ’54 Lunch Bunch – a fun loving group! Stella had that great smile and special laugh. She was a gentle spirit and had a heart of “gold!” What a peace to know she is once more her vibrant and happy self. She is with our Lord and loved ones. Our sympathy to Byron and all her family. Leon and Joann (Hoffmann) Steinbrueck

    candle 5Sweet Mother of Dearest Friend Bridget, you made me feel like a young lady when I was the biggest tomboy. You were a wonderful woman as I saw it, in an adolescent’s eyes. Thank you Bridget for sharing you Mom with Me.

      candle 3Stella gave me a job and supported my professional aspirations when I was at one of the lowest points of my life. She believed in me and gave me the courage to continue striving. That was many years ago but I have thought of her often as I’ve recalled the excellent foundation she provided. Thankfully, I was able, at one point, to communicate my gratitude to her but felt inspired, on 10/22/20, to reach out again only to find…I was too late. So, through tears, Bridget and Sandy, please know that I loved and appreciated your Mom in a very special way. Thank you for sharing her with all of us STAT people. She was a good and good-hearted woman. I am so happy that her life was filled with love and family until the end. I hope that brings you all peace. Sweet dreams, Stella J…
