She was preceded in death by her siblings Iona Burton, Diane Burton, Charles Burton, Jeanette Bates, and Mariam Hughes of Louisville Ky.

Because of her generous spirit and pleasant personality, she was adored by many. Her unwavering faith was as strong as the woman she was, and she didn’t hesitate to tell others how good God is, was and will always be. Stella loved life, travel and could often be found on a boat sitting peacefully at a machine with pure joy in her heart and `a smile on her face. Lestella’s influence will remain in the hearts of those who loved her forever. She peacefully departed this life on Thursday December 12, 2019 at 3:53 am in the morning at Norton Hospital Pavillion, in Louisville, Kentucky.

Her beautiful legacy will remain in the lives of her children LaVonda Burton-Satterfield (Patrick) of Bowling Green, KY, Sterling Burton, Corey Burton, Talia Wilson, and Qaron Wilson of Louisville, KY; six grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; sisters, Eudelia Malone, and Frances Bishop; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
