Stella – A Naval Veteran’s Funeral

My grandmother Stella Julie Jeselonis lead a full long life, and at the age of 88 she quietly and comfortably passed away in her longtime home in Medford, Massachusetts. Her parents immigrated from Lithuania during the early 1900’s. She was a veteran of the Navy and was a rivetor working on the planes for the war. Just like Rosie the Rivetor. Here is a picture of her that happens to be, in my opinion, the best photographic capture I have caught.

These are at the cemetery and of my mother and her family. They are straight up 100% lithuanian…which is a rare thing these days, makes me 50% lithuanian…which is also rare.
