Stella was born June 15, 1924 in Medical Lake, WA to Peter and Theresa Hartmeier. She graduated from Marycliff High School in Spokane and married Floyd Peplinski in 1946. She is survived by her daughter; Carol Sheridan (Don), son; Richard Peplinski(Vickie); Sister; Alma Belise, Grandsons; Mike and Scott Peplinski and two great-grandsons; Hayden and Hunter Peplinski. During WWII, she was a Junior Mechanic in the aero-repair division at Geiger Air Force Base. We called her our own "Rosie the Riveter". Stella and her husband Floyd loved farming and moved several times in her life improving farms in their many moves in the Spokane and Oregon areas. She was a proud, hardworking farm homemaker who loved to garden. Her green thumb and love for flowers and the beauty they brought for all those to share were her special gift. She was a devout Catholic; active in many Altar Societies, including Society President. Rosary will be held, Thursday, December 29th at 7:00PM at Our Lady of Fatima 34th and Perry Spokane, WA. Mass will be held, Friday, December 30th at 11:00AM at Our Lady of Fatima and Entombment will be December 30th at 2:00PM at Holy Cross Cemetery 7200 N. Wall St. Spokane, WA. Thank you to the staff at Emily Court for the great care they provided for nine years and to the supportive care of Spokane Hospice in the last week of her life. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Emily Court Activities Fund or to Hospice of Spokane. STELLA
