“Together Forever”

BOARDMAN – A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated by Fr. Edward Neroda on Monday at 10 a.m. at St. Stanislaus Church in Youngstown, for Stella Repec, 82, who passed away Wednesday, Feb. 13, at home.

Stella was born in Europe in Lublin, Poland, on June 8, 1930, a daughter of Jan and Magdalena Tor Tukiendorf and came to the United States and Youngstown in 1951.

She worked as a custodian at the Dollar Bank for 18 years and then in food service at Northside Hospital, retiring from there in 2002.

A long time member of St. Stanislaus Church, Stella belonged to the Infant Jesus of Prague Guild, the Altar and Rosary Sodality and the Polish Choir. She was also one of the dedicated workers who made pierogi every week in the church kitchen and belonged to PNA Group 827.

She loved spending time with family but also enjoyed cooking, gardening and listening to music in the park.

Besides her parents, Stella was preceded in death by her husband, Stanley Repec, whom she married Feb. 26, 1949, and who died Sept. 25, 1991; and by her sister, Kazia Paul.

She is lovingly remembered by her son and daughter-in-law, Peter and Diana Repec of Boardman; her daughter and son-in-law, Daniela and James Davner of Canfield; her sisters, Janina Tyndorf of Perth Amboy, N.J. and Mariana Jaworski of Edison, N.J.; her grandchildren, Nicholas, Jennifer and Matthew Repec and Melissa and James Davner; and her great-grandson, John Peter Repec.

Calling hours will take place Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Kubina-Yuhasz-Wasko Funeral Home in Boardman, where a prayer service will also take place at 1:45 p.m.

Interment will take place at Calvary Cemetery.
