MALTA-Stella Marie Fauth, 81, went to be with her Lord and Savior on May 14th, 2014 at the Hi-Line Retirement Center, surrounded by her family.

Stella was born on January 2, 1933 at her parents' home in Hinsdale Mont., to Oliver and Fannie Bucher. In 1936, because of the opportunity to work on the Fort Peck Dam project, the family moved to New Deal Mont., On September 22, 1938, at the age of five, her father was one of the eight workers who lost their lives in the slide. He is one of six, forever entombed in the dam. The family then moved to Glasgow where Stella completed her education, graduating in 1952 as a Glasgow Scottie, something she reminded her family of from time to time.

Shortly after graduation she married a young marine, the love of her life, that also happened to be her Sunday school teacher, (we are sure she was the teacher's pet). Harry and Stella were married June 25, 1952 making their home eventually in Larslan where they raised nine children. After many years of working in the Larslan community, actively involved in various churches, and Postmaster at the Larslan Post Office, Harry and Stella retired to Malta to be near family. Even retired, Stella remained active, involved in the church and attending as many "grandkid" functions as possible. She loved her family, reading her Bible, attending church and the Gospel Jamboree. She was a gracious host to all who entered her home and was famous for her "Twists", a perfected sugar cookie. She always seemed to be such a quiet lady but when she prayed, all of Heaven listened.

On June 1, 2010, Harry went home to be with Jesus. Having lost the love of her life, Stella showed the strength that comes from God, loving her family and those around.

In 2012, Stella moved to the Country Home until the fall of 2013 when she moved to Hi-Line Retirement Center.

One very special blessing she enjoyed for the last twelve years was her sister moving to Malta. Doris and Stella were together as much as possible and were not only sisters but best friends.

Stella is survived by her children: Shirley (Rusty) Vickhammer, Jim (Nancy) Fauth, Doug (Mary) Fauth, Darlene (Mark) Boothe, Emanuel (Brynda) Fauth, Tami (Ross) Christofferson, Becki Sorenson, Paul (Sarah) Fauth and Melodee (Sean) Kavanaugh; 20 Grandchildren, 17 Great- Grandchildren and two great-grandchildren soon to be joining the family in June and August; Sister Doris Poor, two Brothers Clarence & Russell Bucher, brother-in law Vern Fauth and Sister-In-Law Aldina Carroll and numerous nieces and nephews.

Stella was preceded in death by her husband, parents, four brothers and one sister.
