Stephanie loved being outdoors, swimming, hiking, biking, and taking walks, and going
to the beach, town park and playground with her beautiful little family. She enjoyed camping and
the yearly trips to the family’s lake house in New Hampshire and all the fun and adventure that

rockets, adventurous bike rides, or going for kayak rides around the lake with her husband and
daughters . She loved taking long car rides and sightseeing, especially to witness beautiful New
England fall foliage at Mt. Greylock, and frequent “Beach Cruises” along the Connecticut

concerts with her husband and friends. She will be remembered for her love of Christmas and the
Christmas season. She absolutely cherished the time she was able to spend with her family on
their yearly Christmas trip to NYC to see The Rockettes and shop for gifts. She was a beautiful woman with a beautiful soul who had an endless devotion to her family and her two little girls.
