Stefanie Limon passed away on Saturday, August 8, 2020, at the age of 51 yrs. old due to health related complications.

She was preceded in death by Carmen Limon, Sr., and Patro Ruiz Limon, her parents, and sister Juanita Plantz, (nee Limon), and nephew Philip Limon.

She is survived by her siblings, Carmen M. Limon, Jr., Maria Limon, Martha Limon, John Limon, Anna Limon, Rebecca (David) Perez, Richard Limon and twin brother, Steve Limon, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Stefanie lived a life filled with service and selflessness. She sought out meaningful opportunities even if it meant putting her life on the frontline. Professionally she was a U.S. Navy Firemen Apprentice in Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm during the Gulf War. The skills she acquired during her years of military service would act as a foundation throughout her life as she often found herself protecting her family, friends, and dogs.

Always someone that marched to the beat of her own drum, she was an invested Broncos fan when Peyton Manning was the quarter-back, she was particular like that.  Her free time was often spent with her veteran brothers and sisters. Whether it was hunting, camping, fishing or simply engaging one another, she was there.

She devoted her time to Lucky Mutts Rescue and enjoyed traveling around the country rescuing dogs and finding them permanent homes. She enjoyed the road-trips, especially the scenic route ones. She found beauty in her surroundings, especially meeting new rescues, because she knew she was contributing to a purposeful cause.

She loved her family immensely, especially all her nieces, nephews and her service dogs, Peyton, Moe and the late Omaha.

She was generous, kind, loving, fiercely loyal to her family and friends. She will be deeply missed and forever in the hearts of all who loved and knew her.

A public visitation will be held on Monday, August 17th, from 10am-12pm at Heritage Funeral Homes (6615 W. Oklahoma Ave. Milwaukee). Due to Covid-19 and limited space, a private family service will be held.  All are welcome to join the family at St. Adalbert Cemetery (3801 South 6th Street Milwaukee) for military honors and burial on Monday, August 17th, at 1pm. Masks will be required at all events.

    I’m remembering Stef today as it is her birthday. She was so kind and thoughtful. She gifted me my dog from Peyton and Omaha’s litter in 2015. That sums up her life of giving and service. I miss her dearly and wish we could have seen each other just one more time on the earthly plane.
