Trenton, NJ (Mercer). Monday night, community members all gathered to remember the life of Stephanie Campfield, the Manager of the Downtown Area Starbucks who recently passed away on September 16th, just days before her 34th Birthday.
“Stephanie was a warm and loving person,” her friend and event organizer, Detective Tamika Veal stated. “She was Starbucks and she was Trenton!” Tamika explained that she felt it was only right to have an event like this to bring the community together, allow them to have this space to remember their loved one and, celebrate Stephanie.
Stephanie’s mother, Ada Rodriguez, addressed everyone and expressed how happy she was to know her daughter was loved by so many. Mayor Gusciora, Commissioner Frisby, as well as other community members each took a moment to speak about Stephanie and to reaffirm what her presence meant to the store, the people, and the community.
At the conclusion of the tribute, everyone released balloons into the air along with words of love for Ms. Campfield. Funeral arrangements have not been made to date however, we will be sure to advise as soon as we obtain the information.
Stephanie will be missed by many but she left a powerful Legacy and touched a lot of lives to keep her vision and memory alive for years to come.
