My condolences to Gerry and all the family. I worked with Stephanie for many years at ValleyPBS television in California's Central Valley. I have fond memories of sharing many lunches and noontime walks with her. Sharing our faith often gave us a midday boost. She was a kind person with a great work ethic. God be with Gerry and the family and give them comfort and peace.

Stephanie was a kind and generous woman. She was filled with love and her laughter and fun personality lit up the room and was infectious. I liked to say that she had magic fairy dust as when I left after spending time with her, I felt a great warmth in my heart. The example of Gerry and Stephanie´s marriage and love for one another was inspirational to me and reflected those found in the pages of the Scriptures. I am praying for you, Gerry, Michael, and John and all who love. May you find great comfort and peace in knowing that she has gone to the One she entrusted her eternal soul to. I can see that beautiful smile and my heart is comforted knowing first that she is no longer suffering and second, I have the hope of seeing her again, one day. May the Lord surround you with His light, love, and comfort.

My dear sister Stephanie was a beautiful and kind woman who loved her family very much, especially her children and grandchildren. Steph had a great sense of humor and was a talented and creative painter who loved reading and playing with her granddaughters. Her death is a tragic loss.
