Stella Soriano

Stella Soriano went to her eternal home peacefully Nov. 21, 2015, with her daughter by her side.

Stella was born Oct. 26, 1925, in Rowe, N.M. She lived in Prescott most of her life with her husband, Mike Soriano, who passed in the 90s. She moved to Kingman in the early 2000s to be closer to her daughter and grandchildren.

Stella was a beautiful, generous person who lived her life in service to others. No one was ever turned away for a meal and she was a loving caregiver for many people. She loved her family dearly.

She is survived by her son Timothy J. Anderson (Ann); daughter Denise S. Roby (Steve); granddaughter Erika T. Yell (Joseph); grandson Sean E. Roby; brother Gilbert Sanchez (Esther); sister Annabell Banegas; godchild and niece Katherine Morris; as well as lots of nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.

Roby (Marilou) on Sept. 7, 2015; beloved niece Maria "Patricia" Alvarado in 2014; sisters Barbara Chavez and Patti Davidson; and brothers Anthony Seiler and John Seiler. They will all be missed by their family and friends.
