Condolence From: Charlie & Annette Branson and Family
Condolence: Aunt Stella was such a wonderful Appalachian, Country, mother. I remember fondly meeting her in the mid fifties before Bill was born. She was a loving and kindred soul to everyone she knew. Even though she travelled all over the world she never abandoned her roots and strong family values; she was tightly bonded with her beloved family, immediate and extended. Even though we hadn’t seen her in years I will always remember her presence and comfort when my mother, Kathleen, passed and again more recently when my brother,Mike, passed even though her own health was declining. We’re so sorry for your loss and pray that your memories and those of others will be comforting🙏🫶 love, Annette and Charlie Branson

Condolence From: Ronald Saylor
Condolence: For my cousins, Lee, Kathy, Jean, and Joyce, “Your family and friends love you and love Aunt Stella too! We always will from the yesterdays, for this today, and for these tomorrows to come! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Everyone shares your lost, because she is your mother, my aunt, and to this world, a most beautiful and loving human being. Her love, her kindness to so many, both human beings and animals, was unparalleled. I’ll always remember the love she has for her family, especially her children, her mother, our Granny, her father, Grandpa Spencer, her sister Naomi, my mother, and her brother, my uncle Orville. Her love of music with lovely guitar playing and singing, her most delicious cooking skills, her enjoyment of gardening, were just a few of her most priceless gifts she shared with so many. I’ll miss her unique laughter and sense of humor, as those awesome fried banana peppers she always took the time to make for me whenever I was coming to town as the canned peppers too. There isn’t enough time and words to express all that I want to. It is very sad for all who knew her, that we lost her in this world, but we must believe she is with the family and friends she has lost, now and with eternal love, peace, rest……and fishing too.
Cousins, we love you all, always,
Ronald Saylor and family
