Our sweet Stefanie Bell Greer passed away on January 2, 2021 from metastatic breast cancer at her home in St. George, Utah. She fought valiantly to the end, with courage, optimism, and always with concern for others around her.
Stefanie was born on April 13, 1981 in Frankfurt, Germany to Mark and Barbara Bell. She spent her childhood in Germany, in Lichfield, England and in Salt Lake City, Utah. Stefanie was a spunky middle child with a great sense of humor, always a twinkle in her eye and a ready smile for everyone. She attended Scotch Orchard Primary School in Lichfield, England, Bonneville Elementary School, Clayton Junior High and Highland High School, all in Salt Lake City. She graduated in 1999, and made many lifelong friends during these years.
Stefanie attended the University of Utah and pursued a bachelor’s degree in Art History. During this time she met Adam Greer. They fell in love and married in the Salt Lake temple on June 3, 2003. They were blessed with three wonderful children; Nathan, Annie and Noah and have made their home in St. George since 2007. She enjoyed visits to their family cabin, to the beach and visiting family. She loved running and hiking and completed 3 marathons. She worked as a part-time teaching assistant at Dillworth Elementary in Salt Lake City, and Bloomington Elementary and Tonaquint Intermediate in St. George. Stefanie’s greatest role was as a wife and mother. She loved Adam and her children more than anything and enjoyed making their home a beautiful loving place.
Stefanie was a devoted follower of the Savior, Jesus Christ, and a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, filling several callings in Primary, Young Women’s and Relief Society and attending four years of Seminary. Her faith was an anchor throughout her life, especially during her illness. Stefanie was one of the most Christlike people - she was humble, kind, loving and always looking out for others, finding ways to serve those around her. Even during her most painful and dark days, her thoughts were turned to others.
Stefanie is survived by her husband, Adam, her children, Nathan, Annie and Noah, her parents, Mark and Barbara Bell, her siblings Kirsten Morgan (Ben), Janine Thorell (Jason), Ryan Bell and Julie Ripplinger (Sam), her mother-in-law, Diane Greer, sister-in-law Sarah Dunham (Steve), and brother-in-law, Jesse Greer and many loving aunts and uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends. She was preceded in death by her father-in-law, Scott Greer in 2016 and we imagine a joyful reunion in heaven with him and many others who have gone before.
A private funeral will be held on Saturday, January 9 at 11:00AM in St.George, Utah.
