In 1960 my family moved to Lowell Avenue, from the Green Gables district to Walter Hays disctrict.  I was 9 years old and totally lost in a new neighborhood and new school. Stephanie was the oldest in a rollicking family of five kids that lived across the street from our new house, and each of the Hogue kids was the same age as each of the five kids in my house.  That began 10 years of friendship, with swim parties and neighborhood games of Kick the Can, and bike clubs and sleepovers.  Stephanie was smart and had her own quiet integrity.  She didn't give into the pressures of the 60's, rather she just continued on her quiet way wherever she was going.  She went to the Catholic school near Rincanada Park, Saint Albert The Great (the kids in my family scathingly called it "Big Al's".)  Then she came to Paly with all of us.  Stephanie and I were close during those years.  We fought like sisters and hung out like sisters.  She saved my life when I was "the new kid", and I will never forget her for that.  I lost track of Steph and all the rest of her family when I moved away, and I am sorry to hear that she is no longer with us.  She was a good girl, and I know that she is loved and missed. Thanks, Stephanie-- with love from Andrea Cox Sprecher

I went to St. Albert the Great with Stepanie for many years. Stepanie did have a quite grace about her even as a child. She was smart and thoughtful and I remember her for this. She was a very special spirit.
