Stephanie Lynette Metzler, passed away unexpectedly at SOMC Hospital on October 10, 2018 due to medical complications.

Stephanie was born in Gallipolis, Ohio on December 26, 1977, to Tom and Freda (McGuire) Metzler. To say Stephanie was an animal lover would be an understatement. Stephanie had the largest heart for animals, and loved being able to care for those animals that were unwanted by others and give them a wonderful life. Beside her passion for animals, Stephanie also enjoyed fishing, spending time with her family, and spoiling her nephew Gavin, who she had an extremely close bond and relationship with.

Stephanie is survived by her husband, Frank R. Windle III; parents, Tom and Freda (McGuire) Metzler; sister, Courtney Metzler (Jeff Howell), and nephew, Gavin Howell. Stephanie is also survived by a host of loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and good friend, Shannon Diamond.

Stephanie is proceeded in death by her maternal grandparents, Vernon and Irene McGuire and paternal grandparents, Bill and Lola Metzler.

Friends may call Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 4-8 PM at the Lewis & Gillum Funeral Home of Oak Hill. Funeral services will be held 2:00 PM Sunday, October 14, 2018 at the funeral home with Rev. Fred Crabtree officiating. Burial will follow in C.M. Cemetery. Online condolences may be sent to
