She began her career in bookkeeping for several years then ventured into a position with a water management company for several more. After 25 years of dedication and commitment to the Senior Living Community she decided to then retire in 2017.
In 1999 Stephanie rekindled an old friendship with Dan Gagliano which turned into 25 years of wedded bliss. She then knew she had found her true soul mate and then in 2019 they felt it was time to take their show on the road. Dan and Stephanie sold their home and possessions, bought a motorhome and for the next 3 years lived full time exploring this beautiful country.
In 2022 they found a piece of property with a spiritual connection in Colorado across from Mesa Verde National Park and decided to build their forever home.
Stephanie was an incredible lady with great beauty inside and out along with an infectious smile. She touched many lives through her years and will be dearly missed.
