Our beloved Stacey went home to Heaven on Saturday, January 16th, 2021. She was greeted there by her Great Grandparents, Grandma Lennie, Grandpa Gayle, Grandpa Gene, Grandpa Red, Uncle Rick and her beloved companion Echo.
Stacey left behind many who loved her, her mom and dad, Mike and Shawna, her brother and Sister-in-law, Scott and Tabitha, her adored Nephew, Isaiah and her much-loved 98 year-old Grandma Dorothy.
Her extended family who will miss her are her Aunts, Uncles and Cousins: Bill and Mickey, with kids Landon & Maddie, Steve and Lauren, Kersten and David with kids Jericho, Danny, Miah & Mercy, and Jordan and Brittany.
She was also loved by her Fiancé, Sam Kehoe, his parents Dan and Tina, brother Joshua and wife Morgan and son Shane, and brothers Jacob and Jordan.
Stacey was born in Tacoma, WA on April 28, 1992. As a child, Stacey participated in Gymnastics, Girl Scouts, took piano lessons, excelled in swimming lessons and loved all forms of art.
In Junior High, Stacey attended College Street Christian Church with her family and was a part of the Krosstix Team from Lacey Assembly of God. With the Krosstix Team, Stacey performed Human Videos and Choreographed Dance Routines all over Washington and even traveling to New York to perform on the Streets of New York City.
In Highschool, Stacey was on the Swim and Diving Team and loved her Art and Wood Working Classes at Timberline Highschool in Lacey, Washington. During this time, she became a Certified Red Cross Life Guard and worked at the Tumwater Valley Athletic Club.
For the past 2 years, she has been pursuing a career as an Electrician. In the summer of 2019, she was accepted into the Electrician Program at Bates Community College in Tacoma. She started working for Seattle Electric as an Electrical Trainee in the summer of 2020. She was recently accepted into the Tacoma Electrical Union. Stacey was 2 days away from being a Journeyman-in-training and on her way towards realizing her career goals.
Lately, Stacey has filled every spare minute with the exciting adventures that she loved: hiking with her Dad and Sam, shooting, paint-balling, mountain biking, rock climbing, backpacking, backpack camping and regular camping, boating and “Rock-Out” concerts with Sam and his family.
But, besides the exciting adventures, Stacey also enjoyed spending quality time with her family. Whether it was visiting her Grandma Dorothy every Friday to do odd chores, have lunch or learn to sew; or helping her Dad rake leaves and work on wood projects in his Wood Shop; or going to the Outlet Mall to go shopping with her Mom; or spoiling her Nephew Isaiah, Stacey showed her family how much she loved them.
Stacey had a bubbly, firecracker personality and attitude in life. At this time of her life, she was on the cusp of a new frontier. At 28, she had everything ahead of her. She was a Christian woman , who knew God loved her and she loved God. She was totally excited on the day she signed her Driver’s License to be an Organ Donor. Mike and Shawna didn’t think it would happen this way; but are happy with Stacey and proud that she could make a gift to 5 different people. Stacey’s Fiancé, Sam, is thrilled that part of her is still a part of this world and out there somewhere doing good for other people.
Anybody who knew Stacey, knew that she loved all living things. She had multiple dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, chickens, birds, lizards, snakes, and even giant cockroaches. Her latest love was her Fur-baby Floki.
Stacey will be laid to rest at the Claquato Cemetery in Chehalis alongside her Grandpa and Grandma Stanton.
