Stella Stipanovich Obituary
Stella Stipanovich

Surrounded by family, San Pedro resident Stella Stipanovich died peacefully on June 23, 2017, after a long illness at St. John of God Retirement and Care Center in Los Angeles. Born in 1933, Stella grew up in the Echo Park and Silverlake areas of LA, attending John Marshall HS and later LA Harbor College, where she studied vocational nursing. She worked for the Southern California Edison Company medical clinics in Torrance and Long Beach in the 1970s and 80s.

She loved her husband Vilko (married in 1952) and her children "to pieces," as well as singing, writing, baking, talk radio, gardening, and her Catholic faith. Stella is preceded in death by her husband and son John, and survived by her children and grandchildren: son Mark (Leticia), Daniel and Anjelka; daughter Dorene Calderone (John); daughter Elizabeth Danek (Ivan), Mario and Antonio; and son William (Jeanette), Sidney and Catherine; her brother Robert Bosnyak, Jr. (Pam), Robert and James; several cousins and extended family.

Many thanks to the kind and dedicated nursing and support staff at St. John of God and her doctors.
Services will be private. Memorial gifts may be made to MPN Research Foundation, 180 N. Michigan Ave., Suite 1870, Chicago, IL 60601. Please sign the guest book at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
