Stella S. (Decowski) Deitrich, 91, of Salem Township, passed away Tuesday, September 27, 2022, in her home.

Born in Huntington Mills on March 31, 1931, she was the daughter of the late Josephine and Anthony Decowski. She graduated from Huntington Mills High School in 1949. She married her husband Robert R.

For most of her life, she worked in sewing factories.

Stella was a member of the Berwick Assembly of God Church. She was also a faithful attendee at the Berwick Senior Center. She had many hobbies including camping, sewing, crocheting, playing board games, and assembling puzzles. She loved listening to southern gospel music. Most of all, she was a very faith-filled person and spent her time telling others about her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and how much she loved them.
