She married Charles C. Scrobola in 1957 and raised six loving children. She was totally dedicated to her children in all aspects of their lives. She was a permanent fixture at the Wyoming Valley Airport where she would always have a hug and kiss for everyone traveling through.

She was a graduate of Hanover High School and the Nesbitt School of Nursing. She married her husband, Charles C. Scrobola, M.D., and worked in Philadelphia as a personal care nurse while starting her family of six children. Stella devoted her entire life to her children and continues to influence their lives.

She is survived by her children, Charles J. and his wife, Lisa, James and his wife, Joyce, Michael and his wife, Carol, Bridget, Joseph and his wife, Sheryl; a shitload of grandchildren; and one big great-grandson.
