Stella C. Soto

Stella Soto, 75yrs of age, lived happily in Murrieta CA, originally born in Los Angeles at the current site of the Dodger Stadium.

“Mom, Gannie, Daughter, Sister and Auntie,”  Anyone would say Stella was the brightest star and the most beautiful lady in the room. If you needed help with an aching heart, career advice, a meal or a place to stay then Stella was the one we all could go to. Stella loved her family and would do anything for her family. Stella loved her job as a Food Service Manager 3 and worked very hard to obtain her Manager 3 status. Stella took care of all the little children and made sure each child was fed. Stella’s biggest loves was food, Elvis, her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and her family. Stella had one hobby “food” and that made her the best cook ever, no one could compete with her cooking or her beauty. The three words her three children use to describe their Mother is the Biggest Heart, the Most Giving and the Most Loving. Anyone would agree. Stella was a Christian and is joined with our Savior and is completely restored.


Stella is survived by her son Raymond Soto Jr, daughters Maria Arenas, Lynnette Soto, grandchildren Michael Arenas, Ashley-Marie Grijalva, Gabriela Arenas and great granddaughters Amelia, Alena and Araceli Grijalva. Also Brothers, Sisters, Nieces, Nephews, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.
