Stacy was active in the community, volunteering whenever she could.

Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren. She would go anywhere and do anything with them. Stacy was a huge Cardinals baseball fan, and she loved to watch Harry Potter and any Christmas show. She especially loved Christmas because she was a very giving person who loved to see the joy on others faces. She would do anything for anyone.
