Read more about the life story of Stephanie and share your memory.
On May 16, 1982, Donette Johnson and James Wagner welcomed a beautiful baby girl, Stephanie Lea. From an early age, Stephanie had a tenacious spirit and a special knack for making those around her feel special. She became the sister to two younger brothers, Colby and Collin.
Stephanie graduated from Guthrie High School with the class of 2000. She attended Oklahoma State University and was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority. After receiving her nursing degree, Stephanie cared for others in doctors’ offices and extended care settings.
Stephanie enjoyed running. She ran many marathons including the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. While she was waging her own battle with metastatic breast cancer, she ran the Running for Leukemia Marathon. As a runner, she adopted the verse from Psalm 119:105, Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Stephanie loved family and friends. She was always willing to give and to help, even when her health would not allow.
The loves of Stephanie’s life were her four children; Madyson, Ryder, Trooper and Francesca. She made the everyday things and the short time they had together special. They attended Life Church. They enjoyed shopping together, both online and in many stores. All got involved with the returns and exchanges, which was half the adventure.
Stephanie and her children loved to order out, or when possible, go out to eat. Often, they would go to eat at “Mady’s Work”. Stephanie wanted to spend as much time with her precious children as possible. With much sadness, she leaves them and awaits seeing them again.
She also leaves her loving parents: Donette Johnson and James Wagner; her grandfather, Don Morris, her grandmother, Dollie Wagner. Stephanie leaves behind her brothers and their families; Colby and Leslea Wagner and their children Cortnea, Camryn and Carder, Collin and Hannah Duel and their children, Eleanor and Aaron. She is also survived by many uncles, aunts, cousins and friends.
She was preceded in death by many she loved, who had been positive examples in her life which she expressed often. She is now with them.
Stephanie had a wonderful, fighting, strong and determined spirit. She never wavered in the fight and set an example for all of us.
