Stephanie Yolanda Howard

August 11, 1973 - June 27, 2021

Stephanie Howard was a loving wife to Jerome and mother to Jaylen and Jazlyn. She retired after 20 years of Naval service and spent her time after in the Virginia Beach school system as a Kindergarten Assistant.
Stephanie was born to Melvin and Patricia McWhorter August 11, 1973. She shared her upbringing with her sister and best friend, Tamestrius McWhorter. Stephanie enjoyed spending time with her family as well as developing the young minds of kindergarteners at Woodstock Elementary in Virginia Beach.
Stephanie had an infectious smile and greeted everyone with a warm and memorable retort, “I’m fine, and you?” Stephanie was called home on June 27, 2021 to be with the Lord. Stephanie is now in the hands of the Lord…and she’s “fine”.
A memorial service will be held on July 7, 2021 at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5033 Rouse Drive in Virginia Beach. A funeral service will be held July 10, 2021 in Athens, GA at Morton Chapel Baptist Church, 2005 Morton Rd Athens, GA. 30605. Please be mindful as COVID protocols will be observed.
