June 11, 1987 – September 2, 2015
My darling daughter passed away in her sleep September 2nd in Red Deer, Alberta at the age of 28. She was predeceased by her father Jacques Picard, Grandpapa Picard, Grandad Simonen and Uncle Richie.
Stephanie had a dream to become a Social Worker and in May 2015 that dream came true, she graduated with her Masters degree in Social Work specialization: Clinical Social Work Practice she was so proud as we all were.
Stephanie worked in many jobs the most rewarding being those that revolved around helping people, working in a group home, caring for Noah and working in the school system as a counsellor while completing her Masters. Stephanie had just started full time as school social worker, she was so excited.
Stephanie met so many people in her short life, she was so loved where ever she went, she touched so many lives.
Stephanie leaves behind her “Mommy” Linda Simonen, Jim Wilson (who adored her), her sister Courtney Picard (Paul) her cherished nephew Oliver, her other sisters Deb (Wilson) and Lisa (Marvin) and extended family, her Grandma Simonen, Grandmama Picard and her Aunts and Uncles and cousins from BC to Quebec. And so many friends.
I will miss you sooooo much baby girl, we all will.
Love you always xoxo.
There will be a “Light up the Night Sky” celebration for Stephanie on October 17th, check Facebook for details. Family gathering at a later date.
