Condolence & Memory Journal

Candle

Oh Steph, I cannot believe you are gone from this earth. I know you are having a blast running and playing with sweet Parker. Arranging everything for everyone to be comfortable up there, making sure no one is left without. I'll always cherish the many laughs and all the shenanigans. My two favorite memories... Laughing till we cried at work for 1.5 solid days when we had a temporary neighbor that made random noises and taco salad Thursdays! Let's not forget all of the volunteer stuff together! Thank you for always looking out for those in need.

Dear Ed and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Steph for many years. We had a special connection and I'm so blessed to have known her. Stephanie was kind and generous. I always appreciated her direct and real approach to everything. She was truly an unique individual. I'm still in shock she's no longer here. My thoughts are with you all as you move forward without her. I will miss her very much.

Ed, I am so heartbroken at the news of Stephanie's passing. She had the biggest, warmest, most caring heart. We quickly became friends at Roche, and I could always count on her to put a smile on my face. What an amazing woman. So generous and kind. I will not forget her kindness and friendship. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and the rest of Stephanie's family.

Ed, Jodie, Dean, Lori and Taz,
I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers for comfort and peace.
Stephanie befriended me at work when I started at Roche in 2006. She knew I was new to the area and quickly told me 'you are going to get involved'. She was part of the Indy Ambassadors organization and we did lots of volunteering events together. The wine ones were the funnest and she was always the one who found us something to do on the weekends. She was always there to help me too. She was a life long friend to me. She was the type of friend where you just pick up the conversation even if you hadn't seen her in months. We would meet at our favorite Mexican place to catch up on our families and eat chips and salsa!
She had a servants heart. Until we see each other again! Love ya Steph!

This breaks my heart. My prayer for peace and comfort are extended to the family. I started at Roche the same area in the same year as Steph. I always talk about coworkers being extended family. Even though our career paths took us in different directions, I know we would have picked up right where we left off if we had crossed paths again. She will be missed.

I am in disbelief and deeply saddened to hear the news of Stephanie's passing. Stephanie was one of the very first people I got to know at Roche and we shared many new hire sales training classes together. She brought so much joy to the classroom! Much of what I know about contracts today is because of her. Her smile and laugh were absolutely contagious and every interaction with her was always full of positivity. I can actually hear her laughing in this lovely photo chosen and the ray of light she brought into this world will truly be missed. I'm sending my deepest condolences to her loved ones and hope their memories will carry them as they navigate through this incredibly hard time.

I can't believe you're gone, Steph! I will never forget celebrating your 30th birthday in the airport in GA, when we were traveling for work; how you taught me to put salt on my cocktail napkin to keep my glass from sticking; or the nearly 20 years we worked together. I was so excited to work closely with you again and I will miss you. You were a great co-worker and friend. Your smile and laughter will be sorely missed.
