Not sure what to say?

Thank you for being a kind, generous mom to me and an amazing, fun, loving grandma to Noah, Ella Joy, JuJu, Georgia, and Emma. You always treated me like one of your own. The incredible thing is you also opened your heart and home to so many others. You'd be the last to admit it, but you gave us all a glimpse of heaven with the thoughtful gifts, trips, games and puzzles, activities, and selfless service you showed us. The kindness I see Jenny regularly show total strangers is...

As i sat down to write this, so many wonderful memories came to mind that its hard to know where to start. Christie was like a second mother to me growing up. She always welcomed me into their home, even when Becky hadn't asked if i could come over. ;-) ;-) We went so many places including, Garden city, isle of palms, camp gravatt, the old Putt Putt place, Pine island, Nanettes house, Red Wing Rollerway, the trenholm park pool, trick or treating, and etc., etc., etc. I spent so much time in...

Aunt Christie always seemed like a "cool" aunt when I was growing up. I remember visiting her home in Columbia when I was in middle school and she created such a fun atmosphere while all of us kids were running around and playing. As an adult, I loved catching up with her at family weddings and enjoying her vibrant energy. She always had a good story and her loving spirit will be missed. Aunt Christie will forever have a special place in my heart.

Christie's contagious happy spirit will never be forgotten. I cannot list the number of amazing memories she made possible in my life. She always made it possible for me to join in on the Stier fun. I wanted to be Christie in so many ways as a mother and always went to her for advice. She was and will always be one of the most amazing woman I, and many others have ever known. I cannot wait to see her again. I can only pray that I have her amazing traits as I raise my own child. I am blessed...

Aunt Christie has been in my thoughts and prayers over the last months. I had so much admiration for her and loved time that I got to spend with her and fam. I always wished we lived closer to our southern cousins! She was an amazing woman and will be missed by so many.

I always thought of Aunt Christie as my dad's fun- loving younger sister. Christie seemed so carefree and happy...all the time! A couple years ago I spent some time wih Christie at my sister's and then a cousin's wedding. I treasure that time. Christie was so much fun to chat with but also very wise. She was an old soul and yet young at heart.

I only met Christie a couple of times, but her positive energy and love for her family really radiated out of her. She was absolutely devoted to her grandchildren. And I know from Jenny's frequent trips to SC, that her children and grandchildren loved to be near her. I think that the closeness of the family says a lot about her as a mother. I hope that my own family is as loving as close as Christie's once my children have grown. Also, as a side note, the techniques she used to teach...

Dear Jonathan and Family: I am so very sorry for your loss.I can remember the first time I met her and she was a wonderful lady and the sandwich she made for Penny and I was delicious. I think of my time working at Stier supply and what a wonderful impression your family made on my life. My thoughts prayers and deepest sympathy are with you and your family. With caring thoughts Cynthia Hamm

Sad news. My warmest wishes to and prayers for the Stier family. A terrible loss, Jon. Your wife was obviously a delightful, loving person. The last few years must have been very difficult. ALS, a horrible disease, ended my brother's life five years ago, the last of my birth family. Jon, I'll hold you to that lunch invitation, when you feel like it. God bless you all. Tom Terrill
