Stella passed away peacefully in her home after a long battle with cancer. She was predeceased by her parents Alfredo Rivera and Christina Suazo-Rivera; brother Peter Rivera; and sister Roseabelle Pacheco.

Stella was survived by her husband Owen Hathaway; son Fred P. Moya (wife Teresa); grandchildren: Michelle Moya-Evans (husband Greg), Chris Moya, Stephanie Lucas (husband Julian), Shaundel Moya, Antoinette Moya-Patnode (husband Laine); great-grandchildren: Stephen, Danielle, Reagan and Joshua; brothers: Alfred Rivera (Yvonne) and Leo Rivera (Margaret); sisters: Rose Cowling (Alan) and Helen Anaya (Natividad); sisters-in-law: Millie Craig (Eldon), Joy Hathaway, Ethel Rivera; brother-in-law Jose Pacheco; special nieces: Patsy Defnet, Gloria Olivas, and Christine Mier. Stella had many nieces, nephews, and many Godchildren who were all very special to her.

Stella retired after many years from First Interstate Bank, formerly Santa Fe National Bank. Stella was an avid bowler who bowled throughout her illness, only taking time to recuperate from treatments. The casino was her best medicine, no matter how bad she felt she was always up to going to the casino. Stella began her fight in September of 2005, armed with her faith and never ending determination to stay healthy to take care of her disabled husband. Growing up close to Cristo Rey Church she was devoted to the church. Her illness left her confused and short on memory, but she always remembered her donation to the church. Stella will be missed by all who knew her.

Her life was celebrated in prayer and a Rosary recitation on July 10, 2012 at Cristo Rey Church. Funeral mass was on July 11, 2012 at Cristo Rey Church. Burial followed in the Santa Fe National Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations be sent to Santa Fe Meals on Wheels program.
