Stacie Ann Van Deman Payne, 58, passed away peacefully while surrounded by her loving family on Friday, November 30, 2018, at her home in The Plains.
Stacie courageously battled Prion disease, which is a very cruel, neurological and non-contagious brain disease.
Stacie will be remembered for her sunshine, love and laughter by so many. Stacie is survived by her loving husband Kenneth Payne Jr. Ken and Stacie were married for 31 years and built an amazing life filled with love, laughter and adventures together. Ken and Stacie raised two amazing children, Elizabeth Marie Payne and Zachary Graham Payne. Another one of their grand adventures began in 2010, when their beloved granddaughter, Grace Elizabeth Whalen was born. Grace is, and always will be, the light of their life. Stacie, aka, “Maw-maw,” delighted in art projects, nature walks and more with Grace.
Stacie is also survived by her siblings, Billy Russell and Judy Russell. Her sister, Judy was her best friend and grand adventure partner. The joy, love and laughter shared by those two was contagious. Stacie was an amazing aunt, confidant and cheerleader in the lives of her nieces and nephews, Angie Ritterpusch, Becki Russell, Michael Payne, Courtney Payne, Frank Van Deman V, Nichole Van Deman and Joseph Van Deman. She is also survived by her uncle, Pete Van Deman.
Stacie was preceded in death by her parents, Frank Van Deman III and Rubye Holmes and her husband, Larry, and a brother, Frank “Chucky” Van Deman IV.
