With a deep sense of commitment, Stella enjoyed Science and teaching.

On Monday, June 19, at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, GA, the Lord declared that the time of her departure was at hand and she was now ready to be offered up for His daughter had fought a good fight, finished her course and most importantly kept the faith.
