I met Stephanie when I was 10 years old, at the annual Coyle family reunion. It was an exciting time for me because I was finally going to meet my Coyle family. As shy as I was, Stephanie took me by the hand and with that big smile, took me and introduced me to some kids my age. She stayed with me until I was comfortable and then as she walked away, she let me know - I'm just over here if you need me. I remember how beautiful she was, and how she favored my dad. I hadn't seen people who looked like him. I loved her instantly! From that point on, we were family. I will always remember her smile, her kindness, and the love that she showed me (and my mom) then, and especially after dad died. You will forever be in my heart, Until we meet again, I love you cousin.

Her father nicknamed her”Lunky”. She was more like a baby sister than a cousin. I’m still in shock. Eight years my junior, it just doesn’t seem like the order of things.

I met Stephanie when we both worked in the Purchasing Department at 7-Eleven. Never saw her without a smile on her face. Her happiness and laughter was infectious. The day was always brighter whenever Stephanie stopped by. Our department had an intramural Volleyball team and Stephanie joined. Unfortunately, there was always something else that would come up and she missed most of the practice sessions . If there was a game she came to play. Several times we offered her an out and told her she didn't have to come since she was so busy. She refused to quit, even though she rarely was able to make a game. We decided to make a video and introduce all the players, one by one. Stephanie wasn't there for the video, but her spirit and enthusiasm wouldn't let us omit her. And so, we placed a pair of tennis shoes on the floor with a sign on top that said "No Show Coyle". Stephanie got a kick out of that. Such a sweet person, gone too soon. May her family's memories of her always bring comfort and a smile because that is what Stephanie was all about.

Aunt Stephanie you will be greatly missed! Thank you for reminding us of the love of family. At times we all get consumed with the day to day activities and too much time passes before we reach out to the ones we love. Family was priority to you and the love you had for all of us showed. I’m so glad that we got the opportunity to see you at the last reunion. Your smile and amazing spirit will live on. May you rest in paradise love you!

I know you are in a better place
But I miss looking at your face
You were so young to die
Every night I sit and cry
Wondering why does it have to be this way
It hurts so much because there's nothing I can do or say
That can make you come back to me
There is one thing that's plain to see
That one day we will be together again
And now until then you will always remain by FRIEND!

Stephanie was one of the warmest and most caring people I have had the pleasure of knowing. I am sorry for your great loss.

I have fond memories of sharing coffee at Starbucks on Saturdays and then shopping at Sam Moon. I was thinking about the last time we went, she insisted on purchasing me a pair of sunglasses with the case included. Unfortunately, someone really liked those sunglasses too, we collaborated on for quite some time Stephanie; because sticky fingers took them from me. However, I replaced the glasses and will always cherish the beautiful case you picked out.

Words cannot express my sadness. May the comfort of God help the entire Coyle Family through this difficult time.
