August 10, 1926 ~ April 23, 2020
Born in: Hardinsburg, KY
Resided in: Owensboro, KY
Stella Merici Hinton Fogle passed away peacefully in her sleep at the Carmel Home on Thursday, April 23, 2020. She was born on August 10, 1926, to the late Malcolm and Edwina Hinton in Breckenridge County (Hardinsburg, Ky). She worked at General Electric on 9th Street, The Executive Inn Salad Department, and Cafeteria Services at St. Peter of Alcantara Grade School and Catherine Spaulding Elementary School.
Caring for her husband, two boys, spending time with daughter-in-law, and four grandchildren was Stella’s most meaningful work. Always a hard worker, Stella did everything from canning and freezing the summer garden’s produce, that was then prepared lovingly for family meals each evening and special occasions. Her Grandchildren will always remember the pancake breakfast they all prepared on their overnight visits. She was a member of St. Peter of Alcantara Parish in Stanley where she was married to Joseph A. Fogle, on February 11, 1956. She was one of the original members of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration adorers when it started at the Carmel Home. She was a master at Solitaire and usually won at 500 rummy. Her work on cross-stitch hand quilted quilts was a relaxing hobby. The Rosary was her helper during the day and her companion every night.
Along with her parents, Stella is preceded in death by Joseph A. Fogle, her husband who died in 1983; her brothers, Francis Hinton, Harold “Bud” Hinton, and Raymond Hinton; her sisters, Mary Rose Bryant, Delphine Hinton and Catherine Hinton.
She is survived by two sons: Fr. Bruce Fogle of Paducah and Phillip (Beth) Fogle of Stanley; four grandchildren, Jessica, Taylor, Allison and Will Fogle; a sister, Betty Payne of Hardinsburg; her brothers-in-law, Patrick Fogle of Brandenburg, and Larry (Joyce) Fogle of Stanley; Sister-in-laws, Anita Fogle of Stanley and Patricia Fogle of Owensboro; and several nieces and nephews.
Rosary and Mass of Christian burial will be at St Peter of Alcantara Parish in Stanley. In compliance with CDC Guidelines, this will be private only. Burial will take place in the parish cemetery.
