BENNINGTON -- Stella Julia Mongomery Field, formerly of Arlington and Bennington, passed away on Jan. 8, 2004 after a brief struggle with lung cancer. Born on May 9, 1920, she was 83 years old. Stella graduated as a member of the Bennington High School class of 1938 and graduated from the Bishop Clapp School of Nursing in Pittsfield, Mass.

She was a World War II veteran, and served as a second lieutenant and nurse in the U.S. Army. She continued a career as a registered nurse until her retirement in 1985. Following the war, she married Richard Field of Cheshire, Mass. and raised three children in the town of Enfield, Conn.

She spent the last few years in Bennington at the assisted living center at Fillmore Pond, where she enjoyed the companionship of her family members and new friends. She leaves two sons, Jeffrey of Loudon, N.H., Greg of Hartford, Conn.; and a sister, Wilma Rice of Shaftsbury.

A memorial service, commemorating her life, will be held in the spring.
