About Stella Milburn
Stella Milburn passed away in 1985, but her love for Ohio State and Chi Omega lives on. She was a founding member of Zeta Alpha while earning a bachelor's degree in home economics, 1918. 

She began her career as a chemist for the State Department of Health Laboratory, located on the Ohio State campus. When she retired in 1961, she was a well-seasoned microbiologist with 43 years of experience in communicable diseases.  A dedicated Buckeye fan for many years, she never passed up an opportunity to be involved with students.  In 1984, Stella received the OSU Greek Alumni Service Award.
