Stella Poulos was born in NY, the second daughter of Greek immigrants, Kostas and Dimitra Papadopoulos.
Born April 11, 1925 she went home to be with the Lord on August 17, 2018. After a long life of 93 years, she left this world peacefully while sleeping. After college she took on a role with American Airlines managing a unit of Sky Chef. She left AA early. Along with her two sisters and brother, she volunteered to stay home since as her mother aged, she was stricken with Alzheimer’s. Stella’s brother Louis and sister Anne also were afflicted by the same horrible disease. Her sister Anne was also stricken with an aggressive type of diabetes, very difficult to manage.
It seemed once Stella left work to take care of her ailing mother, her natural compassion and love seemed to make it much easier to take care of her siblings as well. Before she left this world, it seems she took after her father and while she was getting older, still possessed clarity of thought, and stood her ground in a debate. She is missed by many.
