Stacey was born in Edmonton, AB on August 5, 1973 to parents Wendy and Don.
She was very ill since birth with a rare metabolic illness, propionic acidemia.  She defined all odds and was one of the oldest living persons with this catastrophic illness.

She attended school at Penhold, Innisfail and River Glen.  She also attended the trans vocational program and child care program at RDC, for which she was very proud of her accomplished.

She married Kevin John in 1997 and bought their first home in Red Deer.  Defying all odds again, Nicholas James was born on January 12, 2000 and Emily Mackenzie on October 14, 2003.  Stacey was an amazing, dedicated and loving mother and her children were her true accomplishments in life.

Stubborn, determined, feisty, funny, courageous, inspiring, resilient, strong, thoughtful and loving.
Stacey wrote to over 50 pen pals all over the world and always remembered the special days for family and friends with cards and letters and encouraging words.

Enormous thanks to Dr. Alison Chan, genetics department, UAH, Edmonton, Dr. Ernest McCoy her childhood savior, the doctors and nurses and staff at the RDRH Emergency, ICU and units that have been so kind and concerned about her.
