  • Prayers for the last of a generation

    Stella Krall died Monday, April 5, 2004. She was 91.
    Stella was my Great Aunt - she was my Grandmothers brothers wife and the last of my Grandmothers siblings/spouses to pass away.

    She lived a good long life and was a sweet woman who will be missed. Stella lived just a few blocks away from me and it was always fun to take my daughter 'trick-or-treating' to her home - I always felt like a kid again as nothing in the home had changed in all those years.

    Stella is with Andy, Kate and Larry, Dot and Jimmy, Mary, Helen and the rest of the gang now.

    God Bless Stella - the last of the "old time Hibernians"

        Lisa, we'll be thinking of you. I'm glad you lived close enough to be able to spend time with Aunt Stella. It's truly a blessing when the little ones like Becca have the privilege of knowing, caring for and loving someone so special. Linda

          Sorry to hear of your loss. I can't imagine having a family so close and losing them no matter the age.

          Hang in there,

          Mary S.
