Ms. Sollars was born on July 10, 1928 in Shanghai, China. A staunch supporter of the rights of the unborn, Stella made her life matter by fighting for the most vulnerable. A woman ahead of her time, she had both family, career and a voice that she made heard in her community and country. Devoted to her catholic faith and her love of the Blessed Virgin, she passed on her love of God to her children and their children. She survived WW2 as a POW and this gave her sense of responsibility to fight for freedom and for morality. She is and always will be our hero. We will miss her everyday until we see her again in Heaven.
Survivors include her children; Robert Dodson and wife Connie, Carolyn Dodson, Mary Celeste Sollars-Wright and husband Michael, Jonathan Sollars and wife Pamela Kerrihard-Sollars, grandchildren; Miranda Miller-Jensen, Jessica Ward, Honour, Sean and Theresa Sollars and great grandchildren; Cameron, Kayley and Stella, cousin Ted Whitgob of Australia and loving friend Dr. Tom Cherry of Oregon.
