Obituary of Stephanie Doreen Hillier

Please share a memory of Stephanie to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Stephanie Dorren Sawler-Hillier, 45 of Kentville, passed away peacefully on May 25, 2022 in the Halifax Infirmary. Born on January 30, 1977, she was the daughter of Fred and Marlene (Schofield) Sawler.

“Although a less than average lifespan, she did not live an average life.”

Stephanie was a child care provider but her most recent place of employment was at S & J Diner in Kentville. The food is good there and brought in a lot of customers, but people came back because of how light-hearted, energetic, and wonderfully fun-loving Stephanie was with each and every one that came in to dine.

“Steph’s smile and bubbly personality lit up every room she entered. She was loved by all who were lucky enough to know her. Nothing slowed her down. She was known for her love of family, fun, dancing, new adventures and her sense of humour”

It is very difficult to tell of Stephanie in just a few paragraphs, her energy and smile would fill a room. It was very difficult to be in her presence and not smile with her. She had a few nicknames such as Snagglepuss or Eggo, and she was also known as a Legend’s Lady and loved to do the Funky Chicken dance with her Sue Lou. Stephanie enjoyed taking road trips and four-wheeling with her husband, Scott. And, she relished in the time spent with her children and grandbabies, to Jordan she was known as Gamie and to Caden she was Steph. Some of her favorite times were spent in endless shenanigans with her dearest girls. Stephanie loved playing darts, bingo, cards (also known as the SkipBo Queen), and dancing. She would also enjoy a drink with her most enjoyed being Fireball, jello shots, and gummy bear shots.

Stephanie your endless saying will be missed by many, we will always remember, “Whatever, golden pony boy!” or “We don’t listen to your father.”

In addition to her parents, Stephanie will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Scott Hillier of Kentville; daughter, Mackenzie (Caleb) of Berwick; son, Hunter of Kentville;  step-grandbabies, Jordan and Caden of Berwick; sisters, Robyn of Kentville; Amanda (Darren) of Kentville; nieces, Courtney (Nick R.); Kaylee, Alexis, and Leah, all of Kentville; Lanie Hillier; nephews, Korey and Nick of Kentville; Mason Hillier; mother-in-law, Sylvia Hillier of Greenwich; brothers-in-law, Carmen (Tina) Hillier of Greenwich; Norman (Christine) Hillier of Kentville; and her dearest girls, Sue Lou, Susie, Ali, Tiffani, and Jasmine; and so many more family and friends.

She was predeceased by her brother, Rodney; maternal grandparents, Roy and Beatrice “Nannie B.” Schofield; and paternal grandparents, Ralph and Iva Sawler; father-in-law, Norman Hillier; and nephew-in-law, Jeremy Hillier.
