Stephanie lived and loved, and did it well.
November 10, 1967 - September 4, 2002
If you had met Stephanie, the first thing you would have noticed was her beautiful smile and her big blue eyes. She possessed a joyful countenance and carried herself with grace.
She spoke softly and listened with great intent. She cared deeply about the well-being of others, and could not bear the thought of someone being alone or sad. Her relationships with family and friends were deep. She did not stand on ceremony and shared her love easily. When it came to her career and her home, she was extremely organized and very thorough in all of her planning. Stephanie was no stranger to having fun. She loved dancing, music, cooking and entertaining friends and family. Her high energy level was contagious and her laughter would bring a smile to everyone in the room. She was known for her famous "high kicks". Even if you were not a dancer, you would end up dancing and having a great time.
Stephanie was born in Houston, Texas, the daughter of Jerry and Susan Whitehead and big sister to her brother Jerard. She grew up in Missouri City and graduated from Dulles High School. She took great pride in being a cheerleader for three years in high school and was voted "most school spirited" her senior year. Stephanie went on to attend Stephen F. Austin University where she met and fell in love with Adam Robinson. She was a member of Chi Omega sorority and Little Sister to Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity.
Stephanie and Adam were married a year after she graduated from college. They lived in Adam's home town of Henderson, Texas for a brief stint before moving to Dallas. Stephanie taught first grade at White Rock Elementary located in the Lake Highlands area of Dallas and was a member of Highland Park United Methodist Church. Stephanie touched so many lives and her compassion for others was truly a reflection of the impact a kind heart can have on others.
She was a rare beauty to behold. May her loving spirit live on!
