LISBON - Stephanie Yvonne Mahon passed away peacefully at her home in Lisbon at 6:40 a.m. Sunday, March 3, 2013, with her beloved sister and brother at her side. Stephanie, who had been ill for four months, was 60.
She was born in East Liverpool on Oct. 4, 1952, a daughter of the late Donald R. and Evelyn Jean Hutchison Mahon, both of whom preceded her in death.
A Presbyterian by faith, Stephanie was a "people person" who was always happy, and she consistently shared that happiness with others. For many years, she had participated in track and bowling with Special Olympics, and loved being at the center of any activity. Throughout her life and her illness, she never complained, and always found the "good" in every situation.
She leaves behind her sister, Denise English, and her husband, Michael, of Riverview, Fla., and her brother, Gregory S. Mahon, and his wife, Velma, of East Liverpool. Stephanie adored all of her nieces and nephews: Tera Levesque and her husband, Andy; Michael English and his wife, Carolyn; Shannon Siegferth; Shawn Mahon; Emily Mahon; and Chase Mahon, as well as great nieces Taylor, Brittany and Isabelle and great nephews, Michael, Collin, Jaxon, Aiden, Donavan and Wyatt. A sister-in-law, Sue Mahon of East Liverpool, survives as well.
In addition to her parents, Stephanie was preceded in death by her brother, Donald R. Mahon II, who passed away in 2005.
Services will be held at Dawson Funeral Home at 6 p.m. Friends may visit at the funeral home on Friday, where the family will be present from 3-6 p.m. with the service immediately following. Following the service family and friends will gather at Dawson Family Center. Burial will take place at Riverview Cemetery.
