Brenda Lee Lewis Stephens, age 58, of Marysville, died peacefully Thursday, May 24, 2018 at her home. Despite her health complications that she endured for two years, she fought bravely to live and give hope to those she loved. An associate of Honda of America for more than 20 years, she retired from Honda R & D in 2017.

She was born September 26, 1959 in Louisa, Kentucky. She is survived by her fiancé, Ron Strope of Marysville; her children, Jeremy (Amanda) Stephens of Zanesfield, Shaunelle (Jason) Epp of East Liberty and Shane (Lori) Stephens of Richwood; her grandchildren, Cameron and Caleb Epp and Kaydence and Everlee Stephens; her sister, Hazel (Bill) Coe of Centerburg; her brother, John Lewis of Ottawa, Illinois; her mother, Jenny Bishop of Plain City; nieces and nephews and many other relatives and friends, including Shirley Strope of Wellsville, New York and Esther Kelly of Marysville.
