Buying flowers from us ensures that your order will be fulfilled through working with a network florists that are trusted by local funeral homes and recognized partners of the funeral industry. A customized message, along with a photo of your selected arrangement will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender. This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.
The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.
The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.
In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Stella was born in Osceola, Missouri, October 5, 1918. She traveled in a covered wagon until she was 5 yrs. old. Her father was a house and barn builder in a five state area. When they got to Muskogee, her mother would go no farther as she had traveled 16 years in a covered wagon. Stella’s father wanted to continue traveling, but her mother set her foot down and they had an argument. Her father said, “I will take Stella with me and leave.” Her mother packed her clothes and said “Go”. Her father got mad and kicked down the stove and left alone. When he came back he had bought her Mother a big box of candy and decided to stay in Muskogee. When they first came to Muskogee, they camped in the campground south of the fairgrounds. Stella got acquainted with William Jesse Hooper when she was five and he was nine yrs. old. Stella always stopped him on the way to school and gave him something for his lunch. Each week she gave him doughnuts. Stella later moved to Wagoner County and attended the River Valley School. They lived south of Spaulding Bridge that crossed the Arkansas River. William Hooper and Stella Hall were married October 22, 1932. They celebrated their sixty-ninth wedding anniversary together in 2001.
Stella was a member of the Seventh-day-Adventist church for fifty years. Her favorite verse is Psalms 50:15. Stella was a very hard worker and loving wife and mother. She worked at Griffin Canning Co., Swift and Company and gave Stanley Home Parties as a demonstrator. She made Army fatigues at Kloss Manufacturing.
