Obituary for Stella Spann

Stella Spann was born on September 19, 1922 in Sumter, South Carolina to the late John Henry Spann Sr. and Maybell Cook. She departed this life at Alaris Nursing Home in Orange, NJ on February 26, 2019 at 96 years young. She was preceded in death by her parents, her younger brother John Henry Spann Jr., her three sons Jonathan, Stanley and Alan, as well as her granddaughter Twanda.

Stella’s family came to Roselle, New Jersey when he was just 3-years old, where they lived for several years. After a while they moved to Newark, New Jersey and she was educated in both the Newark and Roselle Public School systems. After school she began working at Chandler Clothing in Roselle, where she was a seamstress and worked for 42 years before she retired. As a woman of God, Stella belonged to Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Newark for many years until she found her home at The House of Mercy Mission for over 25 years. Her love of the Lord and her desire to keep busy made her an excellent candidate to volunteer at the House of Mercy Mission, which is what she did for her 25 plus year tenure there. She found joy in taking care of her family and her community. Stella was loved by everyone she came in contact with because of her loving and giving spirit. Her love for the Lord was not only displayed in how she treated people, it was also present in how she felt about animals, especially her dogs.

Stella leaves to cherish her memories: her grandson, Taalib Wooten-Royal; great grandsons, Amad and Taron Wooten; daughter-in-law, Mary Royal; a special cousin/brother, Archie (Chink) Johnson; along with one niece, one nephew, three great nieces, one great-great niece and one great nephew, and a host of other family and friends.

Gone, but in our lives and hearts forever.
