After moving to southwest Virginia in 2011, Stacey, along with her soul mate Doug, found themselves drawn to the Trail. In just a few years Stacey volunteered over 800 hours with the Mount Rogers A.T. Club as a maintainer, section and boundary monitor, remover of invasive plants, rare plant monitor and even served on the club board and co-chaired the Nominating Committee.
The cliché is that someone “battles” cancer. Stacey pinned it to the ground by the ears and denied nearly every symptom of the disease or treatment the least satisfaction. Her personality was bubbly and she had an infectious laugh that spread a smile to all around her. She will be sorely missed and remembered by all she touched.
