Julia Stephen and Stella Duckworth standing by the steps at Talland House, 1894

Julia Stephen and Stella Duckworth

Julia “took Stella to balls, concerts, and so forth, as became a good mother.” At every turn, Stella reminded Leslie Stephen “of her darling mother.” When Julia died, Stella ran the Stephen household until her marriage to John Waller (“Jack”) Hills on 10 April 1897. Stella died a few months later from peritonitis.
