OBITUARY

Stephanie Paulette Buffkin

March 9, 1971July 30, 2020

Stephanie Paulette Buffkin, age 49, of Indianapolis, Indiana, and formerly of Pelham, Alabama, passed away July 30, 2020. The Birmingham, Alabama native is survived by her father, Danny Buffkin; her mother, Paulette Walters (Daniel); brothers, Kyle Buffkin (Tracy) and Lance Buffkin (Meaghan); nephew, Brody Buffkin; nieces, Faye Buffkin and Nevaeh Walters; step-sister, Nina Guernsey; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Stephanie loved the Lord and her family the most. Though she was given big obstacles in her life, she never let them stop her. She made the most of every day and always remembered everyone else by sending stickers on Facebook just to say hi or I love you. She was the sweetest spirit and always had a kind word for everyone.

Stephanie's hobbies included listening to Christian, country and rock music, and she loved riding in her dad’s truck. She had a close and loving church family at Cornerstone Church in Indiana. She will be missed more than words can express.

The graveside service will be at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at Southern Heritage Cemetery in Pelham, Alabama.

God Called Your Name So Softly: "God called your name so softly that only you could hear, and no one heard the footsteps of angels drawing near. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For part of us went with you the day God called you home."

My fondest memory with Steph was when she would come out on the porch of our trailer to watch Mary and I outside. I would run up the ramp, take hold of her chair and bring her down with us. You are already dearly missed Stephie. I love you sis.

So sorry for your loss. I can remember so vividly being neighbors on Creekview and coming to your house to hang out. Stephanie and I were the same age - I remember being going back and forth in our front yards talking and playing. She was a wonderful human being, so loving and kind. To this day, Stephanie sent me a digital birthday card each year on my birthday. Life took us on separate journeys but I will forever have great memories thinking of Stephanie and remembering when we were young.

Thinking and praying for all of you,
Nicole (Nivens) Tillman

Danny and Paula, So many memories are flooding my mind of when we lived next door for almost 14 years. Steph had a heart of gold. My heart aches for what you and her brothers are going through. God bless you all. Love you all.
