Born on Thanksgiving, 1923, in Johnstown, PA, she resided in Garfield, NJ and Clifton, NJ prior to moving to Toms River in 1982. She was a graduate of Garfield High School and worked at the Ration Board during the war. She worked as a secretary for Allstate Insurance Company in Clifton and Toms River, retiring in 1986. Stephanie lived life with a zesty, happy passion and enjoyed her family foremost. Active to the very end, she enjoyed sports of all kinds, swimming, boating, golfing, music, reading, knitting, playing her organ, cooking, entertaining, and traveling. She was a teacher to all and an exemplary matriarch of our large and extended family. She worked hard, laughed loud, played freely, loved deeply, and was a true testament to the human spirit of perseverance, patience, strength, generosity, and faith. She will be deeply missed but always remembered.
