Stephanie Yvonne (DeVore) Johnson

February 6, 1968 ~ October 3, 2021 (age 53)


Stephanie Yvonne DeVore Johnson, 53, of Mount Washington, Kentucky, entered eternal life with her personal Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 3, 2021 at Baptist Hospital. 

She was born on February 6, 1968 in Louisville, Kentucky, the daughter of Sharon (Gibbons) and Herbert DeVore, Jr. 

Stephanie graduated from Fairdale High School in 1987.  She had a 34 year career at United Parcel Service and most recently served as an aircraft marshall. 

Stephanie’s eyes were fixed on Jesus. She was a member of the Lord’s Chapel and was a passionate evangelical. She was anointed with an angelic voice, ministered through song, in conversation, and even through Facebook videos. Her wish was for everyone to have an opportunity to have a relationship with the Lord so she shared her personal testimony and the Good News with all.  She was blessed with a creative mind and her artistic abilities were seen in all she did: designing jewelry, creating wreaths, lanterns, and floral masterpieces.  She also took pride in gardening at home and for her church, but thoroughly enjoyed her vacations - especially to the ocean.

 Her proudest accomplishment was her daughter, Brooke.  She continuously sacrificed and dedicated her life to rearing her.

She is preceded in death by: her parents, her brother, Eric Gibbons, and a nephew, Joshua Gibbons. 
She is survived by: her loving husband and best friend, David Johnson; her daughter, Patton Brooke Saylor; her sisters, Tammy Coats (Greg), Denise Powell (Mike), Deborah Arnold (Susan Sams) all of Louisville; her brothers, Charles Curtis “Chuck” Farmer (Tammy) of Pleasant View, Tennessee, Dennis DeVore, Sr. (Deb) of Vine Grove, Darrell DeVore (Debby), Tony DeVore (Lora) both of Louisville; her mother and father-in-law, Linda and Bill Johnson of Mount Washington; her aunt, Agnes Wheeler, of Cave City; her cousin, Tracey Toms, of Bowling Green; her former spouse, Hank Saylor; her very special daughter, Stephanie Conforti; and a large extended family including her work family.
