She was born on April 28, 1960 in Alexandria, Virginia, daughter to Carolyn Starbird and the late Irving Starbird. Stephanie was born and raised in northern Virginia and later spent time in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania before moving to Charlotte, North Carolina. Stephanie attended Radford University and graduated with her bachelor’s degree. At Radford, she was a member of the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority and was a Tau Kappa Epsilon Little Sister. She worked for many years at US Airways and then Allen Tate Realtors before retiring. Stephanie deeply loved spending time with her family and friends. She found joy in meeting new people and traveling, especially to the beach. She was an avid golfer and had a passion for aerobics, even teaching it for many years. Stephanie was always creative at heart and enjoyed writing, drawing, and painting. She also spent time playing bunco or cards with friends, listening to music, and relaxing with a puzzle and the Today show. Above all, Stephanie was a selfless giver and a bright light in every room she entered. She never met a stranger and genuinely loved people. She saw the best in everyone she met and found the good in each situation. Stephanie had the biggest heart and the deepest love for her husband, children, grandchildren, family, and friends. She was always happy, energetic, and endlessly playful, especially with her two granddaughters. She is survived by her loving husband of 38 years, Scott McCracken; children Brooke Heim (Christian Heim) and Brittany McCracken (Peter Russell); grandchildren Madison (Maddie) Heim and Avery Heim; and sisters Gail Starbird, Beverly Jean Gunter, and Deanne Starbird.
