From the time of birth, Steaphanie melted hearts with her sky blue eyes, beautiful smile, bright red curls, and freckles. She was a social butterfly that never met a stranger. During the last years of her life, Steaphanie battled controlling her diabetes. The last year and a half, was particularly difficult, resulting in several hospitalizations, surgeries, tears, prayers, and too many close calls with death.
Steaphanie attended schools in Eastern and Southern Idaho. Early in life, Steaphanie met her life long friend, Amber Carter, remaining close friends until her death. In her younger years, she babysat for several families and worked within the community. Her employment at Dairy Queen resulted in Steaphanie gaining a bonus mother, Colleen Jones, and a bonus brother, Curtis Jones. Additionally, Ben and Erica Garcia were friends that became family.

Shortly after, they remarried. During this marriage, Steaphanie gained her bonus children; Deshawn, Skye, Nathaniel, Dominick, and Leland Felix. Years later, Steaphanie and TJ divorced.
