Stephanie Kae Place was born on July 29, 1951, to William and Barbara (Woods) Place in Billings, MT. When she was a young girl, her family moved to Wolf Point, MT. This is where she grew up and attended school, graduating from high school in 1969. During that time, Stephanie was active in International Masonic Order of the Rainbow for Girls and Daughters of the American Revolution. After graduating, she went on to become an LPN at Montana State University, Bozeman, MT.

Stephanie was united in marriage to Steve Schuman on February 5, 1972, in Wolf Point, MT. Stephanie later went back to school at Montana State University to become an RN. Stephanie and Steve lived in Montana until 1987, when they moved to Aberdeen, SD. Stephanie was promoted to head nurse in the ER at St. Luke’s Hospital. She was a nurse for over 20 years before she retired. In 1992, Stephanie and Steve became foster parents for the first time. Over the years they cared for over 150 children.

Stephanie was very active in her church. She made the backgrounds for the Christmas program and volunteered when she could. She was very artistic, giving handmade blankets to all her grandchildren and making stockings and socks. Stephanie had a good sense of humor. One of her favorite sayings was, “This too shall pass”. She loved her family, and especially enjoyed time spent with her grandchildren.

Grateful for having shared Stephanie’s life are her husband: Steve Schuman, Aberdeen; her children: Andrea (Jason) Kost, Aberdeen, Clifford ‘Tony’ Claymore, Aberdeen, and Leah (Jesse) Murphy, Columbus, IN; her grandchildren: Gabe Torbert, Eleori Kost, Austin Carroll, AdaLeena Austin, Ava Murphy, Adele Murphy and Ayden Murphy; and her siblings: Lesley (Shawn) Duthie, Big Fork, MT, and George (Daniella) Place, Genoa, Italy.

Stephanie was preceded in death by her parents, William and Barbara.

The family prefers memorials be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
