Stella Marie Buckley

Peacefully on 8th February 2021 in the loving care of the Woodlands Care Home surrounded by her loving family, Stella aged 88 years. The devoted wife of the late John Buckley, much loved and loving mum of Wayne, Lydia and Kay, dear mother-in-law of Monika, Gary and Robert, cherished grandma of Kay Marie, Elisa, Lewis, and Alex, great grandma of Arthur and Stella-Rose, and a dearly loved relative to many.

Stella spent her working life as a shop assistant in various stores in Accrington, Preston and Cleveleys. Wherever Stella worked she was always a well respected member of the team and she took great pride in her work. Still loved the out doors and always looked forward to getting out in to the countryside for long walks and climbing fells, with her husband John and her family. Together they have walked most hills and mountains across the UK including conquering Ben Nevis and other national peaks. An avid reader, Stella loved to settle in her chair reading Thomas Hardy, or listening to her favourite classical music. Most of all she was a devoted family lady who loved nothing more than visits from all her loved ones ,and she was the most proud grandma.

Stella will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by all who knew her.
