A vibrant life came to an end on December 29, 2021 when Stella Lee Avriett was called home with the Lord. Stella was born on February 19, 1931 to Cephus and Ida Mae Walker in Hanna, Oklahoma.
Stella graduated from Clearview High School and attended Nilar Jewel Beauty College, graduating in 1957 with a certificate of cosmetology.
Early in life, she met and married Roy Avriett. Together they raised their daughter Caroletta Avriett. She was also a mother figure to Ida Mae Brunner and Annette Johnson.
Throughout her life she worked in various careers. She was an organizer for the Beauty Culture League, a Sunday School teacher, a caretaker, a Christian speaker, and a professional chef in her free time, Stella loved to cook, watch NBA games, and enjoy western T.V. shows. She also had passion for horses and rodeos.
Stella will be remembered as always having a calm and patient demeanor. She was willing to help anyone she could, whenever she could. Her heart was big and her door was always open to those in need. She loved to make people feel warm and welcomed no matter the situation. She was a loving mother, a sweet grandmother, amazing friend, wonderful wife, and a beautiful spirit. She will certainly be missed.
