Stella K. Burkes
July 29, 1927-April 2, 2021
Stella was a beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and great-great grandmother. She sadly passed away at the age of 93 after an unexpected, short illness.
She was predeceased by her husband, Lee, daughter Liz, and sons Kenny and Tommy. Stella is survived by her children, Ida, Chuck, Gary and nephew Sonny Murphy, as well as many grandchildren, great and great-great grandchildren.
Stella worked at many thoroughbred racetracks in Northern California throughout her life, occupying a big list of different jobs within. She loved horse racing and was sure to instill its beauty into her family. Stella touched many lives with her genuine smile, knowledge, and abundance of love.
There will be no funeral service at this time, but we will hold a celebration of life later on.
