Stephanie grew up in Leamington, attended St. Clair College graduated with a certificate in Human Resources and took a position at Vista Print, where she loved her job and the people she worked with. She loved to play baseball and bowl as a young girl. Stephanie touched many lives being the most loving, kind and genuine person. Everyone she met gravitated towards her. She was a friend to many but her world was her family, especially her sons.
