There was no visitation as Star generously donated her body to the IU Medical Center/Indianapolis for educational purposes. She had a lot of physical ailments and wanted to be able to help doctors find a cure.
Star was a devout Christian, attending local Worthington Pentecostal churches. She loved all animals, was a beautiful artist and gave tirelessly of herself. Life was at times difficult, but she endured and tried to do her best.
She will be missed by those who knew her. "She is at rest now in the arms of our Lord". There will be a headstone at the Worthington Cemetary in the same plot as Rosabelle Neff who died Aug. 12, 2009.
Lynnhurst Neighborhood Funeral Home in Indianapolis handled the funeral arrangements.
