Stefanie Lynn Conway
I have loved my life to the highest degree anyone ever could have. I have been so blessed through this crazy journey and there’s nothing I would change.
I was given the most amazing parents, Jim and Karen, who always taught us that we could do anything. My siblings and in-laws, Betty and Brian, Heather and BJ, Sterling and Josh, Nick and Misty and Lori and Al, are as close as any family could be. And of course, completing my family are my incredible nephews and nieces, Hilary, Bridget, Judd, Laurel, Baby Olivia, soon-to-be Baby Boy Galliott, Mashayla and Jade. We are not perfect, but we support and love hard.
I have been blessed with so many amazing friendships along the way, that I truly feel guilty. My oldest and dearest of friends, who are more like sisters, Stacie, Sarah and Nicole. My Mafia, my girls, we’ve had so many adventures and so much love, Laura, Trish, Taira, Cathy, Jill and Nicole.
Teaching was one of the greatest gifts I gave myself. It took me on so many exciting trips, including Labrador, Nunavut, the Middle East and Gaza. It was so much for these little Nova Scotian eyes, and I loved every second of it and all the friendships I made along the way. My students and teaching teammates, each and every one of them, has left an imprint on my heart, and I cherish every second I had with them.
To my team at the Valley Regional, Dr. Merryweather and her band of nurse angels, you are the greatest accomplishment, not only to your profession, but to humanity.
Jill and Nicole, no words, only love.
My reason for breath, my everyday joy, my proudest accomplishments, my heartbeat on feet, Bernie, Rylan and Maryn. You have made me into the most amazing human. Being a part of this Conway team has given me a lifetime of love, adventure and amazement. There isn’t a day since I have had you in my life that I have not felt complete and whole love. I don’t know what I did in life to deserve you three, but it must have been awesome.
My angels will be there to meet me, my sister Tammie, my grandparents, and my unborn babies. Nan, I’m waiting for that tea and toast.
The only flowers I want at my funeral are those from Bernie, who never let me go a week without fresh roses in the house. To those who would like to make a monetary donation in my honour, please reach out to support the breakfast programs of our local schools, an initiative that has always been near and dear to my heart. The schools that have touched me the most in my life are Kings County Academy, Coldbrook and District School and Central Kings Rural High School.
Due to current pandemic restrictions, a private graveside service will be held in the Berwick Cemetery. A video webcast of the service will be available at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 28, 2021, accessed by visiting www.whitefamilyfuneralhome.com
In closing, I will leave you with one of my favourite questions, which is perfectly fitting to how I lived my life. What would you do, if you weren’t afraid?
