I’m so sorry for the loss of Stephanie. We will miss seeing her pop in at Base Salon and of course her annual Christmas party. Such a generous soul.

My heart is so heavy with the loss of Stephanie. She had just invited us to their home for a “shrimp boil” the week before and to see their finished home makeover! She was so excited and proud to show it off! We also will miss the Christmas parties! She definitely knew how to throw a nice party. Stephanie was such a special person, always smiling and so care-free. I will forever miss her and my heart aches for James and her daughters. RIP my friend!!

Stephanie was such a sweetheart! I would be on Facebook sometimes at night and she would pop up and we would talk back and forth about back home (Toronto, OH), going to class reunions or just chit-chatting about our families. I was so sad reading her husband's post about her passing. Love to her husband and family. 💔

Stephanie had a heart of gold! She coordinated many trips for us to the beach and took pride in making sure we all had a great time as well as her last trip to Ohio to visit in March when she made us her famous scones! I was blessed to have her as my friend, she is truly missed! Prayers to the family during this difficult time.
