Service will be held Friday, June 23, 2023 at W.E. Lusain Funeral Home and Crematory (2060 Germantown Street/Dayton, Oh 45417). Visitation will begin at 12:00pm and service to follow at 1:00pm. 

Stephanie Fay(Cannady) Stewart, age 65 of Dayton, left this earthly world and on to her eternal one on Wednesday, June 14th, 2023. Stephanie was born on March 13th, 1958 in Tallassee, Alabama. She moved to Dayton, Ohio at a very young age with her mother and has lived here the rest of her life. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, neice, cousin and friend. She retired from New Hope Villa after over 20 years of excellent service.

She was a very loving, strong, big hearted and kind woman. Stephanie was a giver and always put her family first no matter what. She was an avid lover of anything dealing with nature and wanted nothing more than to be living in the wilderness of Alaska surrounded by the beauty that God created. She loved spending time with her grandkids and her crazy but lovable dog FiFi. She was just the center of our world and our world is much darker since she left us. We love her to the moon and back as always never forget.

Stephanie was preceded in death by her mother Erma Dean Shealey. She leaves to cherish her beautiful memory her husband Kevin Stewart, her five children Carlos Cannady, Terrell Cannady, Stacey(Mark) Watson, Eric(Candace) Cannady and Stephania Pierce. She is also survived by a host of grandchildren, great grandchildren, other family and friends. She had a very special and close bond with her granddaughter Zyla Crawford that will never be broken.

It's officially a year today when God said it was time to go. It doesn't hurt any less than a year ago and momma I miss you so much. There aren't enough tears to cry for me to ever feel right about losing you. I hate it here without you, it's so lonely without my phone buddy.

Some much has changed and so much is still the same. I feel like I am living in an alternate universe and somehow I got stuck in this one without you. It seems so unfair and just wrong that you had to the leave the way you did. This week has been hard because life will never be. I just don't know how to live without you. I have nothing but memories to keep me sane. Oh momma I just cannot accept that you are gone even if God himself told me why you had to go. My only comfort is knowing you are not any physical pain anymore. I knew how truly unhappy you were and pray that you are smiling and laughing with your love ones. Don't worry about me I got your DNA in me so I'm built Teflon tough.

The hole in my heart and soul will never heal will always ache and will forever feel the pain, loss and loneliness of your passing. If there is truly a place and a time that we meet again I truly look forward to the day of feeling you hug me again. What I wouldn't give the hear a Stacey Mae or a Now Stacey, only you could calm me down when I was feeling crazy lol. Thinking of the last time we talked, you said you loved me and would call me at 430. I will forever wait for that phone call, because I know someday you will be calling to take me with you. Until then my sweet momma I love you to the moon and back. As always from your broken hearted big baby. Kiss our momma for me.

It's coming up on a year momma and it still hard as hell without you. Some days I don't know how I am making it without you. I truly am alone in this world. I miss you and love you to the moon and back. I am so sorry you were cremated. I don't have no where to go to feel you,talk you, but only in my mind. I am barely hanging on but getting better at hiding it smh. I still don't know what happened and probably never will but I wish I could see you once more even if it is only in my dreams.

Time certainly has not made it easier to be without you. We are still missing you every damn day. I miss our talks, texts and just sitting on your back porch enjoying the weather and listening to you talk about your life. I love you to the moon and back momma. I wish I could get one more hug or even a now Stacey Mae.
Love always,
Your broken hearted big baby

Mom yesterday was 2 months since you left us, and it hasn't gotten any easier. I love you always. If you can please send me a sign that you are ok so I can sleep and not think about you 24/7. Sleep peacefully, love you to the moon and back.

Momma yesterday was one month since you left us and the hurt isn’t getting any less. I wish you would let me know you are ok so I can sleep at night. Sleep is getting less and less these days. Losing you hurt my soul and I doubt I will ever be the same. Loving you always… for now can you please watch over me.

Mama we said see you later to you on Friday and that was the hardest thing in the world to see you for the last of a very long time. It was beautiful too, all of your kids and most of your grandkids all together you would have been beaming from ear to ear if you were there. Save a seat for me next to you and I can’t wait to hug you and tell you I love you once more. As always I love you to the moon and back.

I will carry this weight of losing you forever. I know you would say its gonna be alright but mommy this time it's not. I promise you it's not alright. I love you always to the moon and back from your broken hearted big baby

One of  my favorite memory of my mother is her scratching and greasing my scalp. It was special because living in a house full it was hard to get one on one time with her. She would tell me about her life as a kid and ask me things that I could only tell her and it was nice just the two of us.  My other favorite memory is my mom’s back porch we have had countless conversations, reminiscing about life and even shed some tears on that porch. She would listen and give you advice whether you liked it or not and always made you feel like you matter. She knew I was this shy,awkward socially challenged kid but never made me feel bad about. She said she was always team Stacey and I will forever be team momma. We never went more than a day or two speaking and we always said  I love you. It was the last thing she said to  me and it rings clearly in my mind every night before I go to sleep.
