Stephanie was a loving, empathetic and intuitive person, always sensing her loved ones needs even before they knew it themselves. She was the rock of the family and with her heart of gold, gave fully of herself to all those she loved. A talented singer, Stephanie loved singing and dancing and her favorite go to foods were lobster and pizza with pineapple on it.
