Obituary for Stella Harju

HARJU, Stella
December 9, 1926 - October 7, 2018
It is with heavy hearts we say goodbye to our mom Stella Harju (Bates). Married to Sandy Elmer Harju (pre-deceased 2001) her one true love for 49yrs. They raised 6 children, Sandy (Nancy)Harju, Marina (Ken) Fleming, Marlene Smith(pre-deceased), Bill (Mona)Harju, Cheryl Harju (Dan) & Allan Harju. She adored her 10 Grandchildren, Steven & Troy Harju (both pre-deceased), Ellise & Kyle MacLean, Billy (predeceased) & Michael Harju, Shane & Kristy Sumner, Brett & Carli Darling. She also loved her 10 Great Grand children, Troy, Niki, Dallas, Cole, Owen, Liam, Ryan, Rachel, Edie & Heathem. Stella will be sadly missed by all that knew her in the many facets of her life. Her talent and love of knitting allowed her to donate baby blankets, sweater outfits, mitts, scarves and slippers to those in need. She helped run the family farm along with dad, until a farm accident & it could no longer continue. Mom's love of baking allowed her to work as a caterer to many local functions where she met many of her friends. She worked endlessly during the day on the farm and at Lenark in Dunnville in the evenings for a number of years. She loved her Bingo and never missed a Friday night with Sylvia at the wheel. They always split their winnings half & half. Our door was always open to friends & there was never a shortage of food if you popped in for a visit or tagged along with us after school. Mom is the last of her siblings, pre-deceased by Felic, Josie, Helen, Stan, John, Frank & Mary. Mom was the glue that held us all together. We love you mom as we say goodbye and you reunite with Dad, your true love. A special thank you to all of the staff at the Grandview Lodge for all of their kindness and compassion while caring for our mom. A Celebration of Life will follow at a later date. In lieu of flowers, kindly donate to the Alzheimer's Society in Stella's name.
