8th Dec 1977 – 21st Jan 2017
Stella finally won a 10 year battle with lupus, on Saturday 21st January, 2017 when the Lord took her up to the heavens. We called her the #BeautifulWarrior for she soldiered on despite the challenges she faced with SLE.
She leaves behind her parents James Karanja and Jane Wanjiku, her brothers and sisters; Joe Njuguna and Elizabeth Nyokabi, Pius Kariuki and Anne Wangari, Rufus Mbiyu and Esther Ndugu, Sarah Njeri and Quincy Onyando. Doting aunty to Karanja, Marvin, Christine, Israel, Amaria and Kuwe. A niece, cousin and friend to many, Stella warmed up every soul she met. Prayers are being held at the All Saints Cathedral from 5:30pm and at her parents home in Thika, Maki Estate. We will lay her body to rest on Friday 27th January.
The cortege leaves Kenyatta University Funeral Home at 8:30am for a funeral mass service at St Patrick’s Catholic Church Thika at 10am. The burial will take place at her parents farm in Maragua.
May her strength and faith fire us up as we continue with our own journeys before we meet her on the other side.
