February 16, 1941 ~ April 1, 2013

Sally "Susie" Crillman Stephins was born in Vancouver, WA, Feb. 16, 1941 to Wilbert and Sara Danner. She passed peacefully in her home, April 1, 2013. Susie attended Lincoln Elementary, Shumway Junior High, and graduated Vancouver High, class of 1959, and from the University of Washington in 1963. She was a member of Alpha Phi Sorority. Susie met and married her husband of 49 years, Raymond W. Stephins, June 29, 1963. They returned to Vancouver in 1966 and lovingly raised four children. She was an active parent in the Vancouver Schools, receiving two Golden Acorns. She organized and coordinated fundraisers and events. She was involved in the First Presbyterian Church, Concordia, PEO and Friends of the Carpenter, which allowed her to build relationships across the community. Susie worked for the Chamber of Commerce and retired as "Teacher Susie" from Noah's Ark Preschool in 2006 after 17 years of service.
A coordinator extraordinaire, Susie will be dearly missed by her friends at the events, gatherings, and daily conversations she made happen.
She is survived by her husband, Raymond W. Stephins; and sister, Linda Frazier (Robert). Her legacy continues on in the hearts of her children, Anne Allan (Tom), William Stephins (Alexis), Molly Bonthuis (Paul), and Betsy Seidel (Wade). She was a devoted grandmother to eight grandchildren.
A memorial service to be held Sat., April 6, 2013 at 2 o' clock in the afternoon at The First Presbyterian Church, Vancouver, WA.
