Stephanie "Steffie" Pansulla, born January 8, 1944 in Andernach, Germany, went to join our Heavenly Father on Wednesday, February 6, 2013. She was the daughter of Ben and Gertie Eisenstadt (both deceased) of Neu Isenberg, Germany.
She was the loving wife, best friend and confidant to her husband Sam for 47 years. She was the mother of 2 wonderful daughters, Robyn and Kelly (Palm Bay); step-mother, to John Michael Pansulla (Holiday, FL); grandmother, to Tyler James Pansulla (Palm Bay); step-grandmother, to Michael Pansulla (Holiday, FL); and aunt to a special niece, Patricia Pansulla (Palm Bay). She also leaves behind a brother, Gunther Eisenstadt (Larchmont, NY). She had aunts and uncles as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews of Florida, New Jersey, New York, Arizona, California, Washington, and Germany.
After graduating from American Int'l high school in 1962 in Germany, Steffie worked with NATO and SEATO affiliates where she met Sam. In 1966, they were married in Copenhagen, Denmark and eventually moved to California in 1968. They came to Palm Bay in 1969 with their daughter Robyn, and soon had their other daughter, Kelly, at the old Brevard Hospital (Holmes). Steffie worked in the banking industry for 28 years and then joined Wal-Mart where she was currently under disability LOA, until losing her sudden and short battle to cancer.
She will be greatly missed and loved by her family and also by anyone whom she had met in the past. Her beauty, warmth, friendship and humor will not be forgotten. Always, nothing but kind and endearing words were spoken of Steffie by everyone.
The family wishes to thank all of their friends, neighbors of Country Club Vistas, the Cancer Center of Brevard (Melbourne), management, and associates of Wal-Mart (Palm Bay Rd.) for their prayers, support and donations.
A special "thank you" goes to the wonderful team of Hospice of Health First for their loving care and dedication to ease Steffie's pain during her final trip in her first life.
Respects can be made at Ammen Family Cremation and Funeral Care, at 950 Malabar Rd. S.E., Palm Bay, from 2-4 pm on Sunday, February 10th.
Donations in her name may be made to Hospice of Health First, Melbourne.
