HOWARD — Stephanie L. Sprang, 41, of Magers Road, Howard, passed away Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2010, in Howard.
She was born Nov. 1, 1969, in Mount Vernon to Stephen Thompson and Patricia (Dye) Collins. Stephanie was a 1987 graduate of Mount Vernon High School where she ran for the cross country and track team. Stephanie had a bubbly personality and always had that non-forgettable smile on her face. She enjoyed the time spent with her family. Whether it was a reunion, or just a holiday party or even the family get-together for the big Ohio State vs. Michigan game, she just enjoyed conversing and sharing with her loved ones. Most important to Stephanie was that quality time she spent with her children. They were the shine in her eye and the spring in her step. She will always be remembered as a loving mother, daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, cousin and good friend.
She leaves behind her loving children, Michael Kupiec of Cincinnati, Tricia Kupiec of Howard and Seth Cochren of Howard; her father, Stephen (Belinda) Thompson of Mount Vernon; her mother, Patricia Collins of Walhonding; maternal grandmother, Doris Dye; a brother, Shane (Nellie Hatfield) Thompson of Mount Vernon; a sister, Sherry Baxter of Trinway; stepbrothers, Justin (Margie) Williams and Matthew (Courtney) Carpenter; a stepsister, Carissa (Jason) Lewis; special friend, Ron Metcalf; and many loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and special friends.
