Stephanie Hasyn Obituary
STEPHANIE HASYN On Saturday, August 31th Stephanie Hasyn unexpectedly passed away in her bed at Moss Rehab after suffering from a severe stroke, due to an arteriovenous malformation in May. Since her stroke, Stephanie had been recovering at a rather miraculous rate and because she was medically stable, her passing came as a surprise to everyone who had faith in her. Stephanie was born Sunday, December 5, 1954 in Washington, PA where she graduated from Immaculate Conception High School and resided there for most of her early life. Stephanie is the daughter of the late Peter and Rose (Leone) Ferralli. Additionally, Stephanie is survived by her loving husband John, her son Paul, her daughter Christye, her three brothers, Pete, Sam, and Steve (her twin), and their respective families. Having received a BS in Biology from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, a certificate in Medical Technology from Washington Hospital, and an MBA in Computer Science from Temple University, Stephanie placed a tremendous emphasis on continuing her education. Stephanie was currently a student at Montgomery County Community College where she had taken several computer science and music classes over the past 2 years. In 1979, Stephanie came to the Philadelphia area where she worked at Temple University Hospital and later as a medical technologist at Smith Kline. After several years of working as a medical technologist, Stephanie began work as a data base administrator, but left Smith Kline soon after to raise her children. Stephanie was a wonderful mother, wife, and friend, who enjoyed spending time with those she loved. Most recently Stephanie had been employed by the North Penn School District. Stephanie also cared deeply for her church and community. Among other things, Stephanie was a religious education teacher at Presentation of Our Lord Ukrainian Catholic Church; she belonged to the Italian Sons and Daughters of America and the Lansdale chapter of the AAUW; she was a volunteer for the auxiliary of the VMSC of Lansdale and the Pennsylvania Medical Reserve Corp.; she was a coordinator of the community built Park Sci Playground in Upper Gwynedd; she volunteered in a number of programs through the North Penn School District; she served as a coach and team manager for Nor Gwyn Baseball; she was involved with numerous soccer organizations as a soccer coach and team manager. Some of Stephanie's hobbies included: being an avid reading, the outdoors, cooking, caring for her two cats, traveling, and most importantly, spending time with her family and friends. Stephanie loved nature and just being outside. She was very interested in learning as much as she could about plants and animals and sharing her discoveries with whoever would listen. Whenever Stephanie and her family traveled, she always enjoyed her time spent experiencing nature from National Parks to National Forests, across the U.S. Stephanie coordinated the Karen Wildey Indoor Memorial Soccer Tournament, for the past 6 years held at Montgomery County Community College. The annual soccer tournament raises funds for anti-DUI and anti-texting while driving educational awareness programs for students in school districts of Montgomery County and Bucks County. In lieu of flowers, please send any donations in Stephanie's name to either the American environmental non-profit charity , The Conservation Fund at 1655 N.
