Loving, devoted mother of nine children, seven sons and two daughters. Chris, Dennis, David, Jonathan, Jeremiah, Matthew, Lisa, Michael and Keith. Daughter of Stella Collins, whom she loved dearly and cared for until she recently passed at 95 years old. Grandmother of five, Mark, Jacob, Kailyn, Janessa and Jonathan.
She made her home in Lynn, with Robert Clark, now of NH.
A God-fearing, selfless woman who put other people first, she faithfully attended the Catholic church all her life.
She loved the Good Book and a good book, and continued to study when she had free time. Stephanie gave back to her community through years of service as a home health aide and active participant in her parish. After her kids were grown, she earned her Developmental Disabilities degree and continued to support others as a residential counselor.
A natural nurturer, her children and grandchildren, friends, strangers, animals and even plants were worthy of her care and solicitude.
Stephanie had a great sense of humor and was always up for a laugh. An avid animal and nature lover, gardening was a peaceful task she went about with a song and a smile.
