Stella Delores (Mosby)
Ice, 78 of Giro, Indiana left her earthly home to live eternally in heavenís
paradise on Thursday, September 16, 2010. Born on January 3, 1932, Stella was the tenth child born to Adolph and Ida
Mae Mosby. Stella grew up in Otwell
and graduated from OtwellHigh School class of 1950. On December 8, 1951, she married James Wesley Ice and they moved to
their lifelong home in Giro, east of Hazleton. There they raised four boys, gardened, and farmed.
In the 70ís and 80ís they were avid parade goers with their black horse, George
and buggy. Most recently, they attended Dinkyís auctions every Friday night.
Stella was a very gifted cook, never knew a stranger, and will be greatly
missed for her unbiased care, kindness, love, and also for her "gift of
gab". (She seemed to always have something on her mind to talk about.) Her
family was very close and dear to her, because of the unconditional love and
concern she presented them daily and how she guided them to implement that love
and concern into their own personal lives.
She was a member of the Mt. Olive Church in Mt.Olympus as well as attending the NewLifeChurch of the Nazarene in Princeton where her nephew, Gary Arnold preaches.
She is survived by her husband of 59 years, James W. Ice of Giro;
4 sons and daughters-in-law, Michael James and Ann Ice of Mt. Olympus, Terral Wayne and Judy Ice of Giro,
David Wesley and Joni Ice of Petersburg and Ronald Alan and Scarlet Ice of Giro; 13 grandchildren; 17 great grandchildren; brother,
Joe (Jeanie) Mosby of Algiers; 2 sisters, Elizabeth
Watkins of Mooresville and Mildred Garland of Petersburg; and several cousins,
nieces, nephews and in-laws.
Stella was preceded in death by her parents, Adolph and Ida Mae Mosby; 4 brothers, Roy, Clarence, Bud and Bernard Mosby; 2 sisters, Vivian Fife and Edna Cockerham;
and a granddaughter, Emily Brooke (Ice) Griswold in 2007.
Funeral Services will be held at Tuesday
September 21, 2010 at Colvin
Funeral Home in Princeton, with the Rev. Gary Arnold officiating. Burial will
be at the Mt.OliveCemetery in Mt.Olympus. Visitation will be from 3 until on Monday at Colvin Funeral Home. †
