Stephanie McWhorter Brown (née Putthoff), 43, passed on June 22, 2022, in Dallas, Texas while under hospice care.
She will be dearly missed as a wife, mother, daughter, and sister. She leaves her husband, Brad Brown, daughter Marissa Dean McWhorter and twin stepchildren Tommy and Julie. She is survived by Dr. Stephen Putthoff, father, Pati Adkins, mother, Laura Gibson, sister, Jaden Fabiani, nephew, and multiple uncles, aunts and cousins.
Stephanie was kind to all who knew her. She made friends wherever she went. Her intelligence and abilities were clear as she obtained her RN license and served her patients as an ICU nurse. She was proud of that achievement, but the center of her life was her daughter, Marissa – a brilliant student and talented athlete especially in competitive swimming.
In her last years, she found a deep and fulfilling connection with her husband Brad. They married in 2020. One short year later she was diagnosed with the breast cancer that ultimately claimed her life. Brad supported her during her treatment, drove countless hours with her to appointments and cared for her in the final difficult months with unwavering love and devotion.
Please join her family in prayer. May she rest in peace.
A memorial service will be held in Stephanie’s honor at 2pm, July 16th at Dallas Bible church 15765 Hillcrest Rd., Dallas, Tx 75248
In lieu of flowers or gifts, donations may be made in her memory to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, 13770 Noel Rd., unit 801889: Dallas, TX 75380.
