TRAINOR, Stella Mary 1926 - 2013 Stella Mary was born in Dublin, Ireland, June 30, 1926, where she lived until her family moved to Manchester, England in the late 1930s. As a teenager the family endured Germany's bombing of the city in the blitzkrieg that ravaged England during World War II. After the war Stella traveled to the United States in 1951 and met Charles Lawrence Trainor, a Marine Corp Sargeant, at a dance in Kentucky. Three weeks later they were married. Charles was stationed with the Marines at Camp LeJeune, North Carolina where they gave birth to their first child, Sharon Teresa. Pregnant with their second child, Stella returned to England to live with her parents as her husband was sent to the Korean conflict and commanded a tank he named "Stella." Their second child, Charles Joseph, was born in England while his father was still in Korea. After Charles Trainor was honorably discharged, the family moved to Hialeah, Florida. He began working at the local newspaper, The Miami News, as a staff photographer. It was a profession Stella greatly admired and she proudly spoke of her husband's photography experiences. Stella found her own passion as a sponsor for Alcoholic Anonymous, lovingly working with friends and offering sage guidance at the New Horizon chapter in Miami Springs. Stella's strong spirituality and clarity allowed her to offer advice that was based on simple understandings and universal truths. Humbled by her faith in a higher power, Stella believed life was fundamentally about making the right choices. Her children, friends and acquaintances were fortunate to have had her in their lives. Not only did she offer wisdom, Stella's Irish wit was almost unequaled, allowing her to entertain and mingle in a broad group of social circles. Her eldest son, Charles Joseph, also became a photographer, working at The Miami Herald. When he engaged older journalists, they often talked about what a pleasure it was to meet his mother, that she was charming and funny. She found most of her strength from her faith and reading a variety of spiritual readings, from the "The Sermon on the Mount" to Eastern philosophies. Indeed those readings reinforced her ability to lift others in their time of need. Her second son, Sean Patrick, captured his mother's essence as a teenager when he wrote in a Mother's Day card: "Mom always seems to have the wisdom to help me." Stella passed on April 27, 2013. She is survived by her daughter, Sharon Seedig; two sons Charles, and Sean partner Ian; a granddaughter, Wendy; and two great-grandchildren, Alek and Maddy. Service details will be announced at a later date.
