Stephanie Lee Nitz (Blease) passed away peacefully Tuesday, December 6, 2022, at Rose Arbor Hospice with family by her side. Stephanie was born Tuesday, December 14, 1971, at Grand Forks Air Base, Grand Forks, North Dakota, to David Blease and Sherry (Stamm) Leslie. She was preceded in death by her husband, Kim Nitz, on April 6, 2021, and her niece Anna Leigh Kaufmann in 2009.
Stephanie loved the Lord and her family. She also loved to laugh, sometimes uncontrollable, with the help of her sister and mother, who were by her side to the end. She was joyful during her last few months in Hospice care. Stephanie was always kind and giving despite her failing health. She was surrounded by family and friends and cared for by the nurses who provided loving care all hours of the day and night.
Stephanie was always grateful and thankful and now rests peacefully in Heaven. God gained another beautiful angel around HIS throne.
Also surviving are her father, mother, sister, brothers, nieces, nephews, and her precious dogs, Dash and Boo.
