Stephanie Dawn (Bryan) Powers, age 56, passed away July 26, 2017, at Miami Valley Hospital, Dayton, OH.

Stephanie was born on May 3, 1961, in Lewisburg, TN to Mary Imogene (Corbin) Bryan. She grew up in Leipsic, OH and lived in Ottawa, OH until she married Jeffery Powers on June 2, 2001, and moved to Sidney, OH.

She is survived by her husband, Jeffery Powers of Sidney, OH; her two daughters: Cari Frances Bryan of Campbell, CA and Amanda (Adrian) Nicole Castellanos of Maplewood, OH; and grandchildren: Amber Ballard (granddaughter), Alyssa Castellanos (granddaughter), Reece Smith (grandson), Allyna Smith (granddaughter) and Maryssa Smith (granddaughter). She is also survived by her older brother, Tim (Tammy) Bryan of Lewisburg, TN; her younger sister Seletha McClarren of Ottawa, OH; and her younger brother, Michael (Christine) Bryan of Providence, RI.

Stephanie was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. The love she had for her children and grandchildren was truly unconditional. She loved traveling and her favorite place to visit was Hawaii. She also enjoyed staying in Amish Country with family, strolling through the shops and admiring their craftsmanship. In the evenings, she enjoyed long drives in the country with her husband, where she loved looking for deer on the countryside. Her favorite season was spring, when the purple lilac bushes bloomed. There was nothing more heavenly to her, than the smell of fresh lilacs. Above all though, she loved nothing more than spending time with her grandchildren.

She is proceeded in death by her mother, Mary Imogene (Corbin) Bryan; her infant grandson, Caleb Scott Michel; her infant sister, Sheri Michelle Bryan; her older brother, Darrell Bryan and her younger brother, Craig Bryan.
