Culhane, Stella Kathleen
After a long life, exceptionally well lived, it is with great sadness that the family of Stella Culhane announce her passing on Saturday, April 13, 2019 in her 105th year.
Stella will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her daughter Donna (John), son Gerry and his children Leo (Sofia), Chris (Amy), Emily (Mike), their mother Cathy Hobin and great grand-daughter Ella (Leo and Sofia). She is also remembered by many nieces and nephews and extended family. Stella was predeceased by her husband Leo, her parents William Callaghan and Catherine (Fields), her siblings Madeline (Adrian Brown), Raymond (Irene), Harold (Rita), Doris (Bernard McAlpine), and Frank. She is survived by her sister Evelyn Shannon (the late Clare) and sister-in-law Rosemary. She was also predeceased by Leo’s siblings Frank (Doris), Mary (Herman Lucas) and Jack (Gertrude).
Stella enjoyed working for Famous Players Canadian Corporations for 37 years. She managed the Belle Theatre and the Quinte Mall Cinemas.
The family is thankful for the care given her by the many kind staff at McQuigge Lodge. If desired, Memorial Donations to the Gleaners Food Bank or the Quinte Humane Society would be appreciated.
Stella was always most gracious and lived a life of kindness, generosity and gratitude. She loved nothing better than to share her time with her family and friends. Her wonderful grandchildren and their families held a special place in her heart. Always a wise, caring, and positive spirit, she was a great inspiration to all of us who knew and loved her and she leaves us with so many joys and wonderful memories.
