    Stella will be dearly missed in Richville. She truly lived the motto “many hands make light work” and inspired us all. I can’t think of an activity going on in the Village that Stella wasn’t part of. She was a wonderful woman.

    My heart goes out to the Tamblin Family.

    I am so saddened to learn of Stella’s passing. I worked as Stella’s dining unit manager at St. Lawrence University. She provided joy to each day and became a very close personal friend outside of work. I know i will miss her bubbly personality and am very sure that Richville will miss her enthusiasm at all the community events. Love to Stella and her family. Wayne Hogle
