Aten, Stefanie Ursula April 27, 1944 – July 17, 2011 Our mother . Our hero. Our heart. Lost her 21 year battle with pulmonary fibrosis on July 17th, 2011. True to form, she fought her illness with the strength and spirit she was known for and left our world with peace and dignity. While it breaks our hearts that we can never hold her in our arms again, her resilience, wisdom, beauty and memories she left behind will live within us forever. She is joining her husband Ray in heaven. Beloved mother of Gregory Chadwell, Shannon Chadwell & Stephen Daily, and Katharina Chadwell and Stefanies's grandchildren Justin, Tony, Bobbi, Michael & Alexandra and her great granddaughter Brookelyn. Beloved by her sisters and brothers in law, Ursula & Ray Navarro and Maria & Werner Meyer.
