Stephanie Solorio Earle, BHS '72 (1954-2018)

Stephanie Solorio Earle

Sad news from Susan Earle, BHS '70, "My sister-in-law Stephanie Solorio Earle graduated in the BHS class of 1972. Please pass along to her graduating classmates that year the news of her sudden and unexpected passing while she and her husband, Eddie (my brother), were visiting my 99 year old mother and me at our home in Decatur, Alabama."

Stephanie passed away on June 14, 2018, and was 63 years old.

Besides Susan, her mother and her husband, Eddie Earle, she is also survived by her own parents, her children, and her grandchildren.

From the Family...

"We are raising money to help with the expenses of the sudden passing of this beautiful lady. She was so full of life and love, gave of herself to all who knew her. She passed away out of state unexpectedly and her family needs finances to bring her home. The cost of transportation and additional expenses will be around 5K alone. Thank you for your generosity!"
