Stella passed away 9/12/18 at 96 years old. She was one of our oldest members whose presence was always felt. Who could forget her creations she showed at the Show & Tell part of our monthly meetings. Her curiosity and productivity were awe inspiring. If you knew her, you were rewarded with the gifts of a person always present, involved and cheerful. She was truly an original.
HERE IS A SHORT VIDEO ABOUT STELLA INCLUDING HER BOXING.
Here are a few members' reminiscences, starting with a haiku:
A rare bird Stella
Artist, weaver, fearless, strong
Show and tell, always
Stella Goren is a model of a creative multifaceted person who not only observed but transformed creatively what she saw into all forms of weaving, sculpture, writing and human relationships. To know her was to marvel at her love of life and the world around her. Stella did it all.
Stella was an energetic and involved person; full of humor; dedicated to our guild as a lifetime member. I miss her.
Stella was a small person but a large dynamic force of life filled with positive energy.
An original, who always surprised. She was ever smiling and will stay in our hearts.
To honor Stella’s memory, a fund has been set up to provide a yearly award.
