Stephanie A. Guerra-Brown

September 3, 1954 - September 18, 2021

Stephanie Angela Guerra-Brown, 67, Richmond, passed away Saturday, September 18, 2021.

Stephanie was a graduate of Our Lady of Mercy Academy in 1971 and attended Boston College. She went on to get her master’s in special education and early childhood development at CW Post in New York City. Her teaching career took her from NY to Washington DC to Richmond Virginia. Her last years were spent teaching at the Blackwell Public School in Richmond. Stephanie was a devout Catholic and prayed daily for her family and friends.

To know her, was to know the wild stories she told with grand gestures and laughter of her life and travels. She has joined her mother Helen and father Vincent in heaven. She will be missed by her sister and brother-in-law Elisa and Camp Burton; nephew, Willie Morris; niece, Ashley Kennedy, loving cousins, and her best friend Lennie.

Special thanks to the crew of friends, doctors, and priests that kept her grounded and to the staff at St. Mary’s who worked tirelessly with her in the COVID unit ICU.

There will be a funeral mass for Stephanie at St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Lynchburg at 12 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 23, 2021. Her much loved and respected Fr Tochi Iwuji will be officiating. COVID restrictions will be observed at church and the service will be live streamed from St. Thomas More website.

If desired, memorial contributions may be made to Bon Secours St. Mary’s Hospital, Chaplain’s office, 5801 Bremo Red, Richmond, VA 23226. 

Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, Lynchburg, is assisting the family.
