Stephanie Lynn Hagfors, the daughter of Denis Hagfors and Cynthia (Egeness) Hagfors, was born on January 26, 1997, in Alexandria, Minnesota. She grew up in West Union and attended grade school in Osakis before graduating high school in Brainerd, Minnesota in 2015. She loved to play volleyball and played the trumpet in the school band. After high school, Stephanie went to college to become a Licensed Practical Nurse. She worked in Crosby, MN at Cuyuna Medical Center and then at Grand Village in Grand Rapids, MN. She lived in Grand Rapids for several years raising her two children Gage and Blaire. Most recently, she moved back to Sauk Centre and had been working at Glenwood Retirement Village, in Glenwood.
Gage and Blaire became Stephanie’s world. She was a great mom and loved spending time at the park with them, playing outside and cuddling with them any chance she got. Friends were important to her as well. She was always willing to help those in need without question. She had a caring heart and enjoyed working with elderly patients and their families as their nurse. One of Stephanie’s dreams was to have a hospice shelter for animals that were at the end of their lives. She loved all animals but had a special place in her heart for elderly or injured animals.
Some memories of Stephanie are, her helping Grandma Sandi work at the lunch wagon at auctions, her love for animals, her crafting abilities, her weekly online gaming, her kind personality, and her love of her family. She will be dearly missed by those who know and loved her.
