Stella was born in Boston, MA in 1931. She was the daughter of the late Myron and Shahan Beylickjian, who emigrated to Boston from Armenia around 1920. Stella was proud of her Armenian heritage; among other things her freezer was always stocked with lamejun and she was renowned far and wide for her beroeg and cheroek., likewise always in ample supply.

Her sense of style was amazing, she loved to talk and laugh with everyone, and she radiated happiness, kindness and love like no one else.

She is survived by her three daughters and three sons-in-law, Shahan and George McCracken, Mohrsville, PA; Lisa and Carl Schultz, Camp Hill, PA and Andrea and Bob Joyce, San Jose, CA.
