Estella "Stella" Agsteribbe (April 6, 1909 – September 17, 1943) was a Dutch gymnast. She won the gold medal as member of the Dutch gymnastics team at the 1928 Summer Olympics in her native Amsterdam.
Like other members of her team (Lea Nordheim, Ans Polak, Judikje Simons, Elka de Levie) and their coach Gerrit Kleerekoper, she was Jewish and deported during World War II. She was murdered together with her husband Samuel Blits, their six-year-old daughter Nanny and their two-year-old son Alfred in the Auschwitz concentration camp.
