who were the stars in her world.
She was preceded in death by her late husband, George Daniel Meyding, who was the love of her life.

Stella will also be fondly remembered by her eight grandchildren, Annelise, Madeline, Colleen, Elizabeth, Zachary, Evan, Sarah and Gregory; her daughter in-law, Kalpana; and her sons-in-law, John, Doug, and Chris; and her sisters Roberta and Mary.
Stella was born on July 5th , 1935, in Baldwin, Long Island. She attended St. John’s University and earned her Bachelor’s degree in English Literature and went on to earn a Master’s degree in Education. Over the course of her professional life she worked as an educator and an administrator in various school districts on the east coast.
Stella was an avid reader and shared her love of literature with her children and grandchildren. Other
pursuits included running, walking, biking, and bird watching with her husband. More than anything,
Stella will be remembered as a tenacious fighter in all aspects of her life.
