Stella was blessed with a large and a loving family. She married Edward Paul on January 15, 1961 in Chennai, India and later move to Bangalore with her husband to serve as a schoolteacher. Stella helped raise her three children with patience, discipline, and the fear of the Lord. She taught them to read, write and arithmetic’s (3R’s) but more importantly, from the very beginning, she dedicated her children to God and encouraged them to explore the beauty of the knowing him that lead all her children to serve the Lord today.
Stella was an educator at heart. She was kind and soft-spoken, and always had time to care for children. After she retired as a teacher, she teamed up with her husband to minister to the less fortunate children in the slums of Bangalore, India, by providing them an education and caring for their physical needs. Today, the Bethany Ministry provides education to over 240 children. She loved the Lord with all her heart and served him faithfully. Her family and friends will dearly miss her. Today, we celebrate her life and her home going where she is with the presence of her creator.
Stella is survived by her sons Samuel and Wesley; her daughter Hannah; her son Son-in-law, Jeremiah Rajkumar; daughter-in-law Leann and Debra; her grandchildren Roy, Rebecca, Deborah, James, Ashley, and Jonathan; and Great grandchildren, Joshua and Devina; her brother, Vincent, and her sisters, Shanta and Chandra.
