Stella Mae Capps Mason-Sgourakis, 78, passed away peacefully at her earthly home on June 21, 2019 and is now in her Heavenly home walking the streets of pure gold. Stella was born on July 17, 1940 in Middlesboro Kentucky; she was a 1958 Graduate of Bell County High School in Pineville, Kentucky. She married Raymond Mason on July 9, 1959, and they moved to Fort Wayne, IN in 1966.

Jesus has placed an incredible crown on jewels upon her head, and of course her nail polish and earrings match. She was met at the pearly gates by the love of her life, Raymond Mason, whom she has waited forty years to be reunited with. Stella was an incredible lady who loved the Lord more than anything. She accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into her heart at the age of 7 and found so much comfort following the Lord. She often said she would not have survived the loss of her husband if it wasn't for her Faith and her daughter. She brought so much joy, laughter, and comfort to the world. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.

Stella retired in 1995 from Continental Grain Company (Wayne Feeds) after 29 years of service. She also retired from Fort Wayne Rehabilitation Hospital in 2010 after 13 years of service. Stella, not one to ever stop, worked at H&R Block as a client service professional for the past 7 years.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory and try to live without her, her only child and loving daughter Kimberly Ann Mason-Waikel and her favorite son-in-law Brian. Her most prized treasure and source of pure joy, her grandson, Kaleb Nicholas Waikel. Her "bonus" grandsons who she was so proud of and loved like her own, Andrew Isiaah Waikel and Jacob Allen Waikel. Her "bonus" great grandchildren Emily and Eli Waikel. Her brothers Ottis (Darlene) Capps of Harlan KY, Carl Ray (Donna) Capps of Ewing, VA, her only sister Mary "Skeet"(Maxwell) Southern of Middlesboro, KY, sister-in-laws Gladys Phillips, Jackie Barton, and Peggy Capps, and three nieces and eight nephews. She also leaves behind many friends that will miss her dearly, especially her dear friends Wanda McCue and Peggy Morgan.
She was preceded in death by her parents Esco and Nellie Capps, Brothers Charles "Pat" Frye, Esco "June" Capps Jr., Calvin Capps, nephews Charles B. Frye and Gary Lynn Carter and niece Sharon Frye.
