Stephanie Irene Sepkowski, a casino dealer from Phillipsburg and a professional in Pennsylvania, died on April 28 at the age of 27.
Sepkowski was born at Warren Hospital and raised in Phillipsburg, says his obituary.
She worked as a professional merchant at the Wind Creek Casino in Bethlehem and was previously employed at Opdyke Lumber and Jimmy’s Hot Dogs in Phillipsburg, according to her memorial.
Sepkowski loved playing video games, especially Pokémon. She was also known for her caring, compassionate and non-judgmental soul.
As Sepkowski struggled with addiction as a teenager, she achieved eight years of sobriety before being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and succumbing to the disease again, according to her memorial.
“What illness did not take away, however, was his true spirit of love, which shone through all the adversity life had thrown at him over the years,” reads his obituary.
Sepkowski is survived by his mother, Carolyn Sepkowski; his longtime partner, William Francis; his sister, Samantha Sepkowski; his uncles, Mark and Eric Sepkowski, as well as several extended family members and close friends.
“Although her life sadly ended long before she could fully give her light to the world, the world is a better place because of the love she gave and the love that remains,” her memorial reads.
