Sheila Stepalovitch

Sheila (Brandy) J. Stepalovitch, 66, of Lewisberry and formerly of Mechanicsburg, PA  passed away Friday, January 5, 2018 in UPMC Pinnacle Harrisburg. She was born February 10, 1951 in Kansas City, Missouri to the late Philip Madison and Phyllis Jane Moore Babbit and was the widow of William J. Stepalovitch who passed away January 25, 2007.

"Brandy" was a devote Christian who had a unique ability to show her love and kindness to all who met her. Brandy touched the lives and hearts of so many people in ways she never even realized. She loved mystery movies and books especially Charlie Chan. She also loved to crochet and was extremely skilled in plastercraft. Her favorite food to make was "goodies", her cheesecake was out of this world. Everyone that knew her, knew of the crazy and awesome sense of humor she had.  She could make you smile all day long with her jokes and goofy sense of humor. The most important thing about Brandy is how much of a wonderful mother she was.  She loved her kids so much that words can never say enough and she knew with inch of her heart how loved she was in turn.  Please pray for Sheila and her family.

She is survived by her son, Matthew S. Stepalovitch of Lewisberry, PA; two daughters, Kelly A. Stepalovitch of Boiling Springs, PA and Zoe Dreese of DuBois, PA; and a brother, Terry Lee Sola.

Private Services were held by the family. Arrangements are being handled by Hollinger Funeral Home & Crematory, Inc., Mt. Holly Springs, PA 17065.

There are no words.  I loved you so Brandy.  I will miss you.  No more funny e-mails or chats.  On many levels.

Brandy was like the favorite aunt I never had growing up. She was loving, supportive, and encouraging to my entire family through good times and bad. She accepted us with all of her heart. It’s difficult to believe one person could have so much space in her heart, but she seemed to have an endless abundance. I will never forget what an impact she had on a world that is not always so kind, and my respect for her resilience goes beyond words. She is not gone; she’s only gone ahead. I’d like to think she’s with her husband and my Dad in Heaven right now - three angels watching over two families joined in spirit forever and always.

I met my dear friend over 30 years ago.  Little did I know then that she would turn out to be a valuable part of my life.  We've gone through a lot together.  We were there when our kids went through their growing pains, we were there for each other through sickness, and hardest of all, we saw each other through the loss of our beloved husbands. Life is not a lark.  But life can bring you so much good when you have a friend like I had in Brandy to see you through it all. Thank you, my sweet and Godly friend.  You've given me so much to be thankful for when I remember you.  I'm sure you're now in the Presence of God and rejoicing in your new freedom.  Please don't forget me and maybe one day we'll all be reunited again.  Love you, my dear friend.  (And miss you)
