Obituary for Stella Zentek Zorella

Stella Zentek Zorella, formerly of 11 Zentek Rd., Delaware Township, NJ, died on April 19, 2018, at the Hunterdon Care Center, Raritan Township, NJ.

Born in New York, NY, June 14, 1922, she was the daughter of the late Martin and Mary Grosiak Zentek.

Stella was a Communicant of St. Magdalen Roman Catholic Church, Flemington, NJ.

She was predeceased by her husband, Vladimir ”Bob” Zorella ; her sisters, Florence Croasdale, Deloris Spinks, Helen Harvey and Jeannette Filippello; and her brothers, Edward Zentek, Thaddeus Zentek, and Boleslaw Zentek her beloved twin.

She is survived by her sister- in- law, Eleanor Zentek, of Sayreville, NJ; her brother-in-law, Russell Spinks of Layton, New Jersey; and many nieces and nephews, grand nieces, and grand nephews.

Stella grew up on a farm in Sergeantsville, New Jersey, with her family. They raised corn, tomatoes and vegetables. They also had dairy cows and chickens. Her parents immigrated to the United States from Poland and settled in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. The dirt road through the middle of the family farm has since been named Zentek Road. Stella lived on Zentek Road for many years helping to care for her aging parents and helping her twin brother with the family farm.

During the 1940’s, Stella worked at the Ferranti Dress Factory in Hopewell with her sisters. She was an excellent seamstress who sewed her own wedding dress and all her bridesmaid dresses. Throughout her life she continued to sew beautiful clothes for her family. She crocheted afghans for everyone.

Stella had a beautiful voice and loved to sing many ballads of the 1940’s. She especially loved to sing Que Sera Sera as well as many Polish Polkas. Stella and her husband, Vladimir, traveled to many places in Europe.

She was kind and loving to everyone she met. She will be very much missed by her family.

English lyrics to Que Sera Sera, Stella’s favorite Song:

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother, what will I be
Will I be pretty
Will I be rich
Here's what she said to me

Que será, será
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
Que será, será
What will be, will be

When I grew up and fell in love
I asked my sweetheart, what lies ahead
Will we have rainbows
Day after day
Here's what my sweetheart said

Que será, será
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
Que será, será
What will be, will be
