Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
Stephanie and George were our friends and neighbors since the day we moved into our home in 1990. The over-the-fence chats and the kitchen-window waves are deeply missed. You are missed by both of us. Gail and Peter - Posted by: Gail and Peter (Friends and Neighbor) on: Jan 14, 2021
I was so saddened to hear for Stephanie’s passing. I had the pleasure of working with her at the day program at golden west she attended. Her and I bonded immediately over the fact that I have a close friend who is also named Stephanie so I would always remember her name. She was so much fun, loved to talk and enjoyed the program so much. She often remarked that it was the best part of her week. If I was ever having a hard day she always brought a smile to me. She will be greatly missed by everyone in our group, essentially me. It was a privilege knowing her. - Posted by: Erin Osborne (Golden West Adult Day Program Coordinator ) on: Jan 12, 2021
