Ex Neales Flat, Stella Passes away in her 107th year
Born at Neales Flat on the 25th May 1911, Stella Weis.
Stella lived for many years at Mannum and she loved to come back to visit the Eudunda area, especially the family farm, where she grew up and her brother Vic Weis continued to live and farm on Von Reiben Road, Neales Flat, and also to drive around Eudunda to see what had changed.
The photo shows her cutting her 101st Birthday cake at the Neales Flat School Reunion May 2011, where she remarkably walked around, hardly needing the aid of her walking stick, as she chatted to as many as she could, keen to hear and share stories with everyone who had attended the reunion. She was also a humble lady, surprised by the birthday cake and feeling that she did not deserve it, and surprised the group wanted to celebrate her birthday, (of course everyone else was happy to share that time with her).
Condolences to her family.SCHULTZ (Nee Weis) Stella Laurina Born at Neales Flat 25/05/1911- 29/11/2017 Passed away peacefully at Mannum in her 107th year.
