Stephan Elizabeth Lemmons, Meridian, MS
Above all, Stephan wanted to make a positive difference in other's lives. The impact of Stephan's too short life will not be measured by the pain of her Jan. 24, 2018, passing, but rather by the joy she gave to those around her.
Stephan's passing, after a year-long battle against leukemia, cannot overshadow the courage, strength and resilience she demonstrated throughout her life. The cancer that took Stephan must not define her legacy. Her legacy is best viewed as a tapestry resplendently woven of her unending faith, love, compassion, and hope. She touched the lives of many-- family, friends, young and old as reflected in her personal, academic and professional interests.
Stephan made a unique difference in the lives of her family and is lovingly remembered by her mother Lisa Espasito, father and stepmother Steve W. and Jan H. Lemmons, brother Jim Hankins, stepbrother and sister-in-law Lamar and Nicole Hickman, grandmother Martha Lemmons, aunts: Mary Kay Drury and Peggy Lemmons, uncle Bob Lemmons and cousins: Austin Drury, Laura Lemmons and Adam Lemmons. She is preceded in death by her grandmother Caroline Loflin and grandfathers Roy James (Jim) Loflin and Jack W. Lemmons.
A service celebrating Stephan's life will be held Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018, at 2 p.m., at Central United Methodist Church in Meridian, Miss. Visitation will be from 1:30-2 p.m.
If you wish, in lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the following: Central United Methodist Church (Meridian, MS), Hope Village (Meridian, MS) East Mississippi Animal Rescue and The Ocean Preservation Society or the charity of your choice.
