Stephanie Renee Wilson
My name is Stephanie Renee Wilson, I began my journey of life on April 30, 1975, I concluded my story on April 14, 2017. I was born in Rochester, Minnesota and passed from this life in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
My parents are Donna and Paul Wilson. I was blessed with four children; Karissa, Lamar, Jordan, and my beloved Catherine, who at two weeks, became an angel; as well as two grandchildren, Jaelyn and Nolen. Chad Wilson is my brother. My parents have been superior partners in providing a meaningful support system for our family.
I was a free spirit who enjoyed the variety that life has to offer. I befriended many while listening to the challenges others had. I lived to touch the lives of those around me through my compassion and I treated all people with love and respect. I have seen and experienced difficult decisions of those living on the streets or in poverty. I have been a victim to trauma throughout the years, have struggled with PTSD, and have prospered while having melanoma. I have witnessed and battled the hardships of being chemically dependent and what it has done to my wellbeing. I have helped many to “safety” while failing to secure myself from the demons of drug usage.
Thank you, Thank you! Hennepin County Medical Center for your care and kindness.

I wanted to share that I met Stephanie during a dark chapter of my life. She reached out to me and lifted me up. She was a ray of light to me. She had gone through so much too, and kept fighting. She was an inspiration. My heart breaks knowing she is gone. I wanted to offer my condolences to her loved ones.
Paul,Donna, Chad and Stephanie's children. I had Stephanie when she was in 5th grade. It seems just like yesterday. I was sorry to hear of her passing. Now she has eternal peace. I will not be able to make it to her memorial today but will be thinking of you. It is difficult to lose a. child, sister and mother. May God Bless you and guide you in his love on the days ahead.
Although I never had the privilege of meeting your Stephanie, her obituary paints a picture of a loving woman who gave so much of herself.
You were honest and frank about the life she lived. If what you wrote about her can help another person who is currently suffering as she had, then she will still be helping someone who is still here fighting these battles.
You are in my thoughts and I am very sorry for your loss. Keep her spirit alive in your hearts.
Sorry for your loss she was a awesome roommate and friend. Heart of Gold

Deepest sympathy to your family at the loss of Stephanie, although I did not know Stephanie I was deeply touched by her obituary written with great love and honesty.My family has also struggled with the same issues.
Paul and Donna, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember seeing Stephanie and Chad at church way back when....when all of our children were young. Stephanie's words in her obituary were very eloquent and from the heart. She seems to have been quite a remarkable young woman. There will be a place for her in heaven. Please accept the condolences of our whole family. Love, Don and Mary Jane
