Stella Penalver

Stella, a mother of two grown-up children, was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour in the parietal lobe a couple of months after a fall.  Amazingly, the last 10 months of her life were the happiest she had been since losing her beloved husband in 1997.  She passed away quite peacefully with her devoted daughter by her side. 


Here is Stella’s story as told by her daughter Felicia…


“I used to tell Mum ‘I love you’ every night in case they were the last words she heard.  Mum’s last 10 months were the happiest Raymond and I had known her have since losing Dad and, to spend them together with her living with me was very special – I couldn’t have loved her more.” Read Stella's story...
