Stephanie was strong! Despite her illness she still made an effort to do the things she loved. She was loyal, giving and held no punches. Stephanie could take the worst situation and make it seem so small, a gift that will be deeply missed. She enjoyed playing basketball at Barberton High and Central State University.
