Stephanie Ayn Cunard (Aunt Stephie), age 31, found peace on Friday December 1, 2017.  Stephanie was born in St. Anthony, on May 11, 1986 (Mother’s Day), to Ann Marie and Eric Cunard. She has a sister Sara and a brother Stephen.  She graduated High School from Viking Trail Academy and went to Academy Canada in Corner Brook to complete her diploma as a hair stylist. She excelled in her work and will be sadly missed by her loyal customers. Even though her life was full of darkness her contagious smile could light up a room. She found a great love, Kirby House and daughter Sarah who filled the void in her life.  Some of her greatest joys in life were her dogs Chloe and Buddy, her nieces Madalyn, Alex, and her family including her Grandmother Madeline Skinner and Special Aunt Elsie Cunard.  She was surrounded by a large circle of extended family and friends that loved her very much. She lost her battle with mental illness, not because she didn’t put up a great fight, but because she couldn’t fight anymore.  In her own words, her tattoo stated, “My story hasn’t ended.” The story of Stephanie Ayn Cunard has not ended. Visitation was held from the Anglican Church of the Advent in Plum Point from where the funeral was held on Tuesday, December 5th, 2017 at 2:00 pm with Rev. Jennifer Renouf officiating. Interment followed in the Brig Bay Anglican Cemetery. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Kerry M. Fillatre’s Funeral Homes, St. Anthony and Roddickton, Lee Nippard Funeral Director.
