Stella Mae (Neal) Munds, 91, of Champaign, Illinois, passed away on Friday, February 12, at Carriage Crossing Senior Living of Arcola. 

 Stella was born on February 10, 1930, the daughter of Fenton and Goldie (Henke) Neal.   Stella graduated from Kinmundy High School in 1948. Later that year, she moved to the Champaign 

area to attend Cosmetology School. While in Champaign, she met her husband, Richard. Stella and Richard were united in marriage on Valentine’s Day, 1950. Richard preceded her in death in 2003.  

Stella worked for Unit 4 Schools for several years, and then for McKinley Health Center at the University of Illinois, for 22 years until her Retirement. 

Stella is survived by her sons, Danny L. Munds of Champaign, and Ken D.  Munds (Brenda) of Arthur.   5 Grandchildren, Autumn Reinhart, Brooke Wacker, Lucas Munds, Brittany Yoder, and Jordan Downs, 11 Great Grandchildren, One brother, Clarence, Sisters, Maxine, and Velma, several nieces, and a nephew.  

Stella was preceded in death by her parents, husband Richard, one brother Buddy, and two sisters in laws, Mary, and Velma Lou.  

Stella’s greatest Joy was her Family. She was a lover of children, and could often be seen with a lap full, no matter how big or small they were. One of things she always looked forward to were the bi-yearly family reunions. 

Stella enjoyed being in her yard tending her flowers and visiting with her neighbors, especially her good friend, Sandie. She and Richard would often do some traveling in their retirement years. She attended Brown Christian Church in Kinmundy in her youth and always referred to it as her “home”. She attended First Christian Church after she moved to Champaign, and 

spent many years enjoying her Church family and friends.  

Stella lived her last 3 years at Carriage Crossing in Arcola, where she became a favorite, with that sweet smile, and was loved by all.   Services to celebrate Stella’s life will be held on Thursday, February 18th at 11:00 am at Morgan Memorial Home, 1304 Regency Drive West, Savoy, Illinois. The 

family will be available to greet friends and family at 10:00 am. Interment to follow at Grandview Memorial Gardens in rural Champaign.

 Memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer’s Foundation.
