Obituary for Stella Yorfino

Stella Yorfino passed away suddenly on Nov. 22nd, 2018. She is the daughter of Joe Yorfino Sr. and Madeline Yorfino, both deceased. Stella was a lifelong educator and teacher in the arts. She influenced a generation of theater talent many of whom continue to work in the field today. She was an artist who sought the truth in every act and who would cling stubbornly to what she knew was right in the face of injustice and oppression. She will be missed by many, but especially by those who were close to her in her later years, Anthony Hughes, Russell Hames and Trent Boutz.

In lieu of flowers or donations Stella would have wanted you to buy some wildflower seeds and sow them where you might.

We will celebrate Stella’s life at her home on December 8th. The doors will be open from 1-5 and we will have a ceremony to release her spirit at 3 pm.

We will have a larger ceremony on December 27th in Chattanooga, TN. This will be held at the Bessie Smith Hall beginning at 5:30 pm.
