Her hobbies included gardening, sitting outside drinking coffee in the early mornings, garage sales and going to the flea market. She lit up a room with her smile. Her laughter could fill your heart with Joy. Her unfiltered charismatic character made you love her without knowing her. Stellita could silence a room with story time with stories of way back when. A Dr. Pepper and cigarettes were something she was never short of.

Stellita is survived by her siblings, Judy Torres, Paul Morales, Janie Morales, and Junior Morales; children, Israel Contreras, Rene Contreras, Arthur Contreras, Michael Contreras, Lola Contreras, Norma Contreras, Kay, Sylvia, and Virginia Denoso; grandchildren, Diego, Stella, and Yesenia Contreras, Raven, Chelsea, Courtney, Jacob, Joe Angel Contreras, Kayla and Allie Contreras, Michael, Israel, Savannah, Contreras, George Jimenez III, Jamie and Jasmine Ramirez, Faith Villa, Nathaniel Soto and many more; along with numerous great-grandchildren; as well as a host of nieces and nephews.
