The county sheriff’s office said that, according to witnesses, Stephani  was standing on a bridge when the train came around the corner at about 60 mph.  The train operator sounded the horn and Stephani attempted to flee.  Despite her efforts,  the sheriff’s office said, she was stuck by the train and succumbed to her injuries at the scene of the accident.

“To all of my friends, I loved you all, we laughed and cried together, shared good times and bad. I have been called home to heaven and do so willingly. I’m so sorry that my passing was terrible but my body was only a vessel for my soul. It’s OK to be mad, sad, cry and laugh as you remember the good and not so good times we had.

“Know that I am at Peace.

“My Dad is having celebration of my life this coming Sunday at the Church of Christ at 4 PM in Marysville, WA. Please contact my dad for more information.
