Stella Willden

July 7, 1936 — January 16, 2024

Stella May (Kay) Willden

July 7, 1936 ~ January 16, 2024

Stella was born July 7, 1936 in Twin Falls, Idaho, to George Earl Fenn and Emma Josephine Peterson.

She married Rex Bruce Willden on June 18, 1954. Survived by her children, Shanna Jardine (Rick), Kathy Painter (Darrell), Karma Adamson, Cindy Hatfield, Bruce Willden, and Peggy Cummings (Tobey); 17 grandchildren, 29 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, daughters, Shirley and Joyce Willden; siblings Delmar, Jarvis, Faye, George, and Joe; great-granddaughter Tenley Grace; son-in-law Robbie Hatfield and her fur buddy Duke.

Stella loved to work in her garden and show off her prize-winning roses; go on camping trips, and spend time with her loved ones. She loved cooking for family and made the best apricot jam you've ever tasted.

She never said "I can't do that" nor "No" to anyone. Stella never stopped, if she wasn't working on the farm, she was taking care of her loved ones ( or one of the many animals Rex had brought home.)

She was always there for anyone who needed a helping hand. Her love was felt by everyone around her as she made people feel like they were truly loved and wanted. She loved being around family, cooking, laughing, doing crafts, sewing, embroidering, and making quilts to give to loved ones.

Special thanks to Dr. Brening; caregivers and Enhabit Hospice for all the special loving care Mom received.
