Stephanie (Wilkins) Van Nortwick

Stephanie was a bright, beautiful, sharp, strong, and loving spirit. She was a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and a teacher. Steph was a lover of animals, an athlete, and passionate about so many things in this life. Her enthusiasm and eternal curiosity were contagious to everyone who knew her. Above all Stephanie loved her family.
On June 7th Steph’s journey through this world was cut tragically short by a car accident. Her family and friends surrounded her to say their final goodbyes on June 9th 2022. Even in this darkest time, Steph’s selflessness shone bright, saving the lives of others through her gift of organ donation. While Adam, Avery, and Gavin no longer have Steph’s physical presence in their lives, they will forever have a force watching over them.
Though we cannot replace the love and light of Steph in her family’s lives, we can support them in their time of grief, and share our love of beautiful Stephanie. Please consider giving what you can. All donations will go towards coving the medical costs and funeral expenses and most importantly supporting Adam, Avery, and Gavin in their journey forward with Steph forever by their side, in spirit.
