Stefanie Michelle Pope

Stefanie Michelle Pope, 48, of Wakefield, VA passed away on Friday, November 5, 2021. She was the daughter of Anna Antis Lyman and the late Michael Edward Pope. She was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, “Papa” Joe Pope and “Nona” Betty Cottle Pope

Stefanie loved life! She had an ever shining light with a smile that would not quit. She always took time for others and would help in any way she could. She especially enjoyed looking after the elderly, almost to a fault. She put her life on hold to take care of her parents when illness unexpectedly struck them both, and she was doing that when the Lord decided he needed her more. Stefanie loved playing video games, watching TV and she had a knack for being able to take things apart, fix them and then put them back together.

She was survived by her mother and stepfather Anna and Johnny “Pick” Lyman; husband Dale Jones; half-sister, Trinity St. John; stepbrothers, John Lyman (Miki), Michael Lyman (Lisa); maternal grandparents, Stefan and Elinor Antis; aunts, Betty Jo Drake (Randy), Dorothy Deverin, Sarah Antis, Gloria Leech, Susan Greenlaw, Jennifer Hios; uncles, Robert Pope, Stewart Lee Antis, Jerry Lyman (Charlotte); mother-in-law, Gail Jones; sister-in-law, Shelby Warren (Bobby); nieces; nephews and other extended family.

Celebration of Life to be held December 11th, 3 PM at Wakefield Baptist Church on Church St. In lieu of flowers, Stefanie would want memorial donations to be made to the American Cancer Society. R.W. Baker & Co. Funeral Home and Crematory, Wakefield Chapel is serving the family. Condolences may be registered at RWBakerFH.com.

Stephanie, will be missed by so many and she was loved by so many people too! I remember the first time that I met her and she welcomed me into the family and it touched my heart and made me felt at ease. Her smile and laugh were some of the things that I remembered the most about her. However, her kindness and being sweet to everyone was also something that I remembered too. She will be deeply missed. I'm so sorry for y'all's loss. With love, prayers and hugs, Jennifer Washburn

This is her mom. If you plan on coming to celebration, We are asking anyone who comes to wear a mask. Stefanie was adamant about being safe with dad having lung cancer and I (mom) on oxygen. We have to be careful. Thank you for understanding.

Stef sent me a message today, Thanksgiving through a movie!
Grief is the price we pay for love, and worth it a million times over. Very true, my grief losing my child is overwhelming but my love for her and our memories are worth so much more. I love you baby girl, always and forever.
