Obituary of Stella Ann Ward
Stella Ann Ward, born September 25, 1935, to the late Charlie and Lola Marcum, passed away peacefully at her home on May 1, 2022. She was a devoted Christian and mother. She was one of the most selfless and loving mommas any family could ever hope for. She loved quilting, planting flowers, and gardening, but the thing that made her heart the happiest was gathering all her family together for Big dinners. Her whole work history was cooking in various restaurants and lastly with the Martin Co. School District as a cook.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Charlie and Lola Marcum, her late husband, Kenneth Ward, siblings, Lon Marcum, Mary Garten, Ray Marcum, Ida Belle Lyles, Columbia Jean Parton, and Enoch Marcum, and a great-granddaughter, Skyler Winnett. She is survived by her sister, Essie Woodyard, and her nine children, Terry and Sharon Ward, Paul and Ernestine Ward, Erma and Mike Diez, Charles and Bertha Ward, Arvil and Diana Ward, Jackie Ward, Mary Lou Mowles, Maria and Ralph Muncy, and Steve and Angie Ward.
