On Aug. 23, 2018, with loved ones gathered by her side, Stephanie Teeple (Kozlowski) passed away. She was born in Thunder Bay on March 3, 1983.
Stephanie was raised in Thunder Bay. Her interest in horses, hunting and fishing started at an early age and continued throughout her life. She loved to go camping with family and friends, and visiting her Grandparents farm and Gramma Kozlowski's house.
Stephanie loved helping and caring for people; and this lead to her decision to become a paramedic.
Stephanie attended college in Fort Frances. After graduation, she was employed by the Rainy River District Social Services Administration Board, where she worked out of the Rainy River Ambulance base.
In Stephanie's free time, she rode horses with many people who she made lasting friendships with. Her interest in hunting made her a good shot, and her love for cattle was rekindled when she met Danny.
Stephie leaves behind her devoted husband, Danny, and her loving stepchildren, Logan, Serena, Daelyn and Jameson. She was cherished by her parents, Steve and Kathy Kozlowski, and her younger sister, Alex.
Stephanie will be missed deeply by her grandparents Ann Kozlowski, and Alex and Helen Ross.
