Stella K. Seubert, for 18 years secretary and administrative assistant for Jones and Associates law firm in Baltimore, passed July 7.

Seubert has been living with kidney cancer for several years, although until recently under control by various chemotherapy medications. The latest problem unexpectedly flared up a few weeks ago. Her doctors were unsuccessful in getting it under control. Stella was in good spirits the last few weeks, as she always has been, and passed peacefully, surrounded by family and friends.

Seubert is known for her good spirits, dedication, hard work, and being the glue that made everyone’s lives much easier and happier. “Stella truly had and practiced a shepherd’s heart,” according to William Jones. “We will miss her dearly.”

Stella is survived by her father, Joseph Seubert; her son, Joshua Anderson; her partner, Jan Kerns; her sister, Lisa Maffei, and a host of other family members and friends.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, if you should so choose, a contribution should be made in Stella name to the National Kidney Foundation.
