Stella Margaret Bradshaw passed away peacefully the morning of March 7, 2020 at the age of 78. Stella was a Colorado native, born June 6, 1941 in Denver to Nicholas & Martha Tkachyk.
Stella was an active member and Eucharist Minister in the Catholic Church, where she felt it was important to provide her children the same opportunity as she had of attending parochial school. Stella enjoyed a long professional career as an account at Mountain Bell. After retirement from Mountain Bell, she continued to work as a cashier at Kmart because she loved talking and interacting with people.
She always put others before herself and would sacrifice anything to provide for her family and friends, and many times did. Stella formed strong friendships with a tight group of friends, who would enjoy going out together and being supportive of one another over the years. All of Stella’s family and friends will miss her great smile and how she lit up when she was around others.
Stella is survived by her son Tony and daughter Gina, and grandchildren Justin and Kimberly. She will be laid to rest in Mount Olivet Cemetery in Wheat Ridge, alongside other family.
