Stephane Ann Czajkowski
Stephane Ann (Stachelhaus) Czajkowski, a mother, lover of life, and a real estate agent, passed unexpectedly on Thursday, December 17, 2020.
Stephane is survived by her parents; her children Sydney and Jack Czajkowski; and siblings Geoff and Lisa Stachelhaus.
Stephane was born in Seneca Falls, NY on May 11th, 1970 to Gustav and Carol Stachelhaus. Stephane grew up in the finger lakes area in Upstate NY, moved to Belgium with her family at a young age. This experience influenced her for the rest of her life. The family moved to Findlay, Ohio where she graduated high school. She attended Duquesne University and graduated from the University of North Carolina Wilmington with a dual degree in English Writing and Criminal Justice. Stephane found her calling and was licensed in real estate in 2004. She began her career at Avery Hess and moved to Berkshire Hathaway PenFed Realty Lake Ridge in 2013. She was married on December 3rd, 1993 to Ken, who she met in Michigan and moved to Wilmington NC. On August 5th, 1995 and November 17th, 1999 respectively, she welcomed two beautiful children, Jack and Sydney, who were the most important part of her life.
Stephane loved traveling, dancing, music, gardens, beautiful homes, boating, the beach, food, and even more so her children. She enjoyed time with her friends and was often found with them or finding one to drag out somewhere fun (whether they wanted to or not.) Stephane traveled abroad to Europe with her family and friends and enjoyed Mykonos in Greece. Her passion for life was enjoyed by all that were with her. Stephane was a foodie and and loved cooking new dishes and cooking and baking for holidays for hours or days on end in the kitchen. She oh so loved her dogs (Cooper, Cassius, Chip, Conna, Luca, and Oliver.) Her laugh and smile brightened up every room. Stephane was kind to everyone no matter their walk of life. She wanted equality and peace on earth and volunteered often for the community and our veterans.
Stephane wanted the best in life and for her children and would want her family and friends to embrace Jack and Sydney as they will always be a reflection of her…
Due to the current mandated restrictions on public gatherings, a memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Go Fund Me account for her children gf.me/u/zc555h
