Stephanie R. Sheppard
Stephanie R. Sheppard, age 50, of Hebron, passed away peacefully on May 19, 2013, at her home, surrounded by lots of love. She was born April 14, 1963. Stephanie worked for ADB Airfield Solutions, where she was an assembler. She felt that if you found a job you truly loved that you would never work a day in your life. That is just what she did. She will miss you all. She was the “bestest friend” anyone could ever ask for. In Stephanie’s spare time, she enjoyed woodworking and gardening. Her first love was traveling with friends and family.
In Stephanie’s short 50 years of life she did more things than most people do in 90. She stood at the top of the Eiffel tower in Paris, France, drove race cars at National Trails, rode on fast horses and motorcycles, visited every state except Alaska, and walked on a sandy beach with the love of her life.
She is survived by her sister, Teresa; niece, Tiffany; nephew, David (Jennifer) Hughes; her stepdad, James (Mary) Bradford; and her Fairy Godparents, Bob and Mavis Doolittle. She will greatly be missed by her best friend and companion, Fraidy Cat.
Stephanie was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of VFW Post 3761 in Baltimore.
Stephanie would also like to thank Dr. Daniel Eiferman, OSU Hospitals, for all the hard work he put into her. Doctor, you really tried and she appreciated it.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Louise Bradford; and her uncle, Howard Gorman.
Stephanie requested a private graveside service. She has entrusted Hoskinson Funeral Home, Kirkersville, with her arrangements.
Stephanie wishes to thank Generations Hospice for the wonderful care they provided. She would prefer that memorials be made to Generations Hospice, 46 McMillan Drive, Newark, Ohio 43055.
