    Stella Hardee Jenrette

    Dec. 10, 1920 – June 5, 2017

    Born on December 10, 1920, in a little house in Bolivia, NC. Stella Hardee married Jerome Jenrette on February 13, 1937. She was the youngest of seven children born to George and Lenora Hickman Hardee. She was beloved by her four children: Cheryl Thomas, Jeanette Steinberg, Jerra Jenrette, and Terry Jenrette. She is also survived by five grandchildren, eleven great grandchildren, five great great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, sons and daughters-in- law, and many others.

    Stella was full of love, laughter, and faith throughout her long and blessed life.

    She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of sixty five years, Jerome; her siblings; and her “sisters of the heart,” Edith and Lona.

    Stella became part of the church triumphant on Monday, June 5, 2017. Though she has departed from this life, she lives in our hearts forever.
