Stella Louise Fisher died on Monday, Mar 2, 2020 at Integris Canadian Valley Hospital in Yukon, OK at the age of 73 surrounded by loved ones. She was born Dec 18, 1946 in Oklahoma City to Louie and Audra Schmidt. Stella grew up in Wellston where she attended Wellston Public Schools. She married her lifelong sweetheart, Jimmie Lee Fisher at the age of 17, becoming a young navy wife. Upon leaving the service, they moved back to Wellston to be closer to family and friends. There she raised their six children, becoming a full-time homemaker. She made wedding cakes and dresses for her children which led to a small cake decorating business.
In the early 1990’s Stella, Jimmie and the three children still living at home moved to Yukon. She worked at a Hardees restaurant for a few years as a trainer, then became the resident cake decorator at the local Homeland grocery store. With her husband's passing in 2009 until her death, she volunteered for Valir Hospice, making around a hundred small gifts and cards for patients on each of the major holidays. She won several awards for her service with them.
For her, family was everything. She enjoyed the company of family and always had food in the pantry and bedrooms available for anyone who wanted to spend the night. She was loved and will be missed.
