Funeral Expenses for Stephanie E

$5,040 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 82 people in 21 months
Yesterday, October 21st, my beautiful sister, Stephanie Eisensmith, took her own life after enduring decades of crushing depression and anxiety. Despite her suffering, she offered endless love and compassion for others and bravely smiled her way thru every day.

She left behind adoring friends and family members, including her husband (Harry) and two children (Heather & Phil). She will be returned to Pittsburgh for a funeral and burial so she can finally rest where we all spent long summer days riding our bikes and playing outside as kids.

Years of rehabilitation and hardship have drained retirement plans and savings accounts. We need help flying her family back to Pittsburgh and providing her a proper resting place. 100% of the donations will pay for funeral-related costs and travel expenses for immediate family members.

We are all incredibly grateful for any help you can offer. Stephanie had a huge heart and would do the same for any one of us. Our only consolation is that now she can finally rest in peace.

We love you Stephanie.

Thank you so much to everyone who is helping to bring my family together in this tragic time. I am overwhelmed to see how many people my mother truly touched in her time here. She was a beautiful angel, and a warrior. She endured a life time of pain and was still strong enough to be a loving mother, a sister, a wife, and a nurse. I've never seen someone fight as hard as she did. I'm truly touched by everyone's generosity. Words cannot express this loss. The only comfort we have is knowing her years of endurance have finally been met with peace and rest in Heaven.

Hi Phil. I want you to know that every time I talked with your mom she told me how proud she was of you and your sister and how much she loved you two. Please remember that. She wanted and tried so hard to get better. I miss her so much. Lisa
