Stephanie was born in Marion, OH to Theodore and Ruth Ochs on August 16, 1947. She married Richard Romine on September 27, 1969. Stephanie began her career as a teacher until she found her true calling as a geriatric nurse where she spent over two decades as a registered nurse for the Hospice of the Western Reserve in northeast Ohio. She loved nursing and caring for the elderly. She felt it was a privilege to serve as a hospice nurse and provide compassionate care to those terminally ill and their families.
Stephanie’s other passion was her family. She was a wonderful mother and grandmother who made family a priority. She loved traveling to see her grandchildren and was committed to being a significant part of their lives. She will be deeply missed by her family.
Stephanie was a member of the St. Therese Catholic Church in North Fort Myers. She was the past president of Herons Glen Socialites, a member of Beta Sigma Phi service sorority, volunteered for Hope Hospice and retired from Hospice of the Western Reserve (Ohio) as the director and founder of their alternative home care program.
