She got married at age 18 and eventually moved with her husband to Palm Springs, California where she remained to raise her five children. Stephanie was a dedicated mother first & foremost. She treasured her children above all else and embraced every moment she could with them. She especially loved being a "Nana & Gram" to her grandchildren. She had a passion for cooking and entertaining. Her favorite times of year were Thanksgiving and Christmas. Everyone knew they would be going to "Steff's" house for a Thanksgiving feast and huge party on Christmas Eve. She loved to celebrate the seasons with her family & friends. She loved to travel the world and she loved the outdoors, traveling in her RV to go camping and fishing with her children and grandchildren and taking summer trips to Newport Beach with her family. Her absolute favorite place to be was Laguna Beach where she spent many summers with her family & friends. She was a dog lover at heart and had many dogs throughout her life but her Rottweillers were the most special to her, especially Sadie. She was the most incredible and selfless mother, nana & gram and we will miss her every day. Mom, you will be in our hearts forever and "we love you to the moon & back & beyond!" A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
