Stella was born in Clarendon Hills, Illinois and lived her later childhood in Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania. She attended Penn State University and University of Rochester, became a devoted wife, mother and a public health nurse for Monroe County for over 20 years.

She devoted many years to serving as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for children in Rochester and was very active at her Summerville Presbyterian Church, where she was a member for over 50 years. She enjoyed travel, family vacations, cooking, singing in the church choir, reading and book clubs, and rug hooking.
