In Memory of Stella Hodge
Stella Mae (Ward) Hodge, age 81, passed away on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 in Wilburton, Oklahoma.
She was born September 18, 1939 to Orvin and Tilda Ward, at a little homestead in the community of Ash Creek, that still stands today. She was of the Baptist faith and a full-time, beloved employee at Robbers Cave State Park. She took great pride in her various titles of Mom, Granny, Sis, and Friend.
Stella was a beautiful soul, who always saw the good in people. Her kind spirit led her to making friends everywhere she went. Her home and heart were open to all. As so beautifully stated by her friends at Robbers Cave State Park, Stella has been a welcoming beacon for visitors around the globe. Her light will be grievously missed.
She is survived by husband, Bill of the home; son, Mike Hodge and wife, Claudia of Wilburton; son, Charles Mote of Wilburton; brother, Gene Ward and wife, Kay of Hartshorne; four grandchildren; eleven great-grandchildren; several nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and her second family at Robbers Cave State Park.
Stella is preceded in death by her parents, Orvin and Tilda Ward and sister, Norma Jean Taylor.
A memorial service will be held on Monday, March 8, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. in the Bob Waldrop Memorial Chapel at Waldrop Funeral Home.
