Tribute & Message From The Family

Stephanie Orlando Brown, age 58, passed away on Monday, August 10, 2020 in San Antonio, Texas. She was born April 6, 1962, to Charlotte Hunt and James Milton Orlando in Houston, Texas.

She grew up in San Antonio and graduated from Clark High School in 1980, and she was crowned Miss San Antonio the same year. Stephanie loved to dance her whole life, first as a member of the Clark dance team, and later with her husband of 31 years. She lit up every room she entered with her beauty, style, and spirit.

In 1985 she graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, was a member of Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society, and a Texas Cowboys sweetheart.

Returning to San Antonio after graduation, Stephanie worked at Frost Brothers department store and as an adult probation officer. In 1987, she met her future husband, Tim, and they married on New Year's Eve the following year. Stephanie and Tim were partners in love and business for 31 years. If she wasn't running her children to class or doing volunteer work for the school, she was by his side at the office. She threw herself at the challenges of her business, kept her perspective and used to joke that her next business should be a girl's dance school.

Stephanie often referenced her experience as a probation officer in raising her two sons, Timothy and Parker. She used M&Ms to teach them colors and coins to teach them numbers. She believed fiercely in the value of a good education and worked to make sure her children received one.

Her love of all children led her to volunteer in many ways, as a case worker for Child Advocates of San Antonio (CASA), as a member of Junior League, as a volunteer and parent advocate for the various schools her sons attended.

She spoke with her mother every day, and they shared a common rule, unspoken but followed religiously: that they would each be uplifting and positive. She was a blessing to everyone she met, but she was an angel here on Earth to her mother.

She was honest, kind, and happiest when she was bringing people together. She was always ready to lend a sympathetic ear and offer thoughtful advice. She was an incredible wife, mother, daughter and person. She will be deeply missed.

She was preceded in death by her father, James Milton; brother, Jim and sister-in-law, Janet Robertson.

She is survived by her mother and father, Charlotte and A. L. Hernden, by her sisters Miriam and Bernie Campion, Jennifer and Richard Sparr, and Tricia Hernden, and her brothers John and Martha Hernden and Michael Hernden.

She is also survived by her husband, Tim L. Brown, and their two sons, Timothy Lee Brown and Parker Wyndham Brown, as well as Sharon Brown and Mike Parker, Eddie Brown and Cathy Holloway, and Bill Robertson, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews, and a lifetime of friends.

The family will receive visitors from 5:00-7:00 p.m. on August 24, 2020 at the Porter Loring North Chapel.

Services will be held privately for the family, however friends who wish they could attend are invited to view the livestream via this link, on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 at 10:00 A.M.:

I was shocked to hear of Stephanie's passing I had been working on the family genealogy with Stephanie. I am so sorry for the boys, I understand very well how hard it is to lose a parent at a young age. Love to you Miss Charlotte. - Kelly K Adams 2nd cousin

Dear Friends, I knew Stephanie in Junior High School and High School in San Antonio Texas and saw her again In my Freshman year at UT Austin 1980. She was a great beauty and loved fashion, style but above all friends and relatives she cared about deeply. I warmly still recall her sparkling smile, beautiful smile, elegant style and sense of humor. My heartfelt prayers and best wishes go to her in heaven where I am sure she is in peace, happiness and joy. Much Love and Light. Rama Pemmaraju Rao MD

I knew Stephanie, Miriam and Jim from John Marshall High School and feel deeply saddened to hear of Stephanie's passing. It was hard when Jimmy passed and yet, this seems even harder. Maybe it's because I'm older and have children and grandchildren of my own. I cherish the fond memories of our youth and visiting the Herndon home for the occasional get-together. Miriam, Jim and Stephanie were always sweet, kind and so talented, seeming as though they had the world by the tail. Back in the '70s and '80s, we all felt that way. Wishing Stephanie's family and her extended family peace during this difficult loss. May her memory be a blessing to you all. Robin Cavanaugh

Stephanie made everyone she knew feel a bit better. In her absence the sun will be a bit less bright and flowers will smell a bit less sweet. She will be missed.

Posted by Chuck Davis - Dallas, TX - Friend   August 25, 2020

I pray that God's peace and love surround your entire family in your loss. Though I knew her mostly in high school, I admired her leadership of the Top Cats, her talent as a dancer, her beauty inside and out and her smile and laugh that could light up a room. I looked to her for advice as I dipped my toe into the Miss Texas Pageant system: she was thoughtful in her responses, wise in her advice, and generously offered me the beautiful white costume she wore when she won Miss San Antonio. Also, Stephanie was in my sister's class at Clark, so as a little sister too, I'd like to send a very special prayer and much love to Trisha and Jennifer. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

There are no words to express in this time to all of you. Stephanie was such a energetic "force to be reckoned" with. She loved her Momma, her Tim and yes - "her boys". She was a "family" first person always. Everyone that came in contact with her felt "special" .... she had that knack of making you feel that way. Sincere, loving, gorgeous on the inside and outside - that's how I'm going to choose to remember her.
May she RIP until we see her in Heaven soon.

Stephanie was my dear friend and as we proudly referred to each other walking buddy. She brought so much joy and inspiration into my life with her kind beautiful spirit. We formed an eternal bond of friendship over time on our long walks that will forever remain in my heart. Stephanie was an extraordinary and beautiful person who was a loving mother, wife and true friend. I will miss her so much, but my heart will be filled with warm fond memories of our short time together. Rest In Peace Bestie. I love you.

I am overwhelmed with sadness to hear of the loss of Stephanie. I saw her as a leader and gifted dancer in Top Cats. I got to know her as a lovely human being with challenges always striving to be her best. She shared the death of her dad with me in college at UT because she knew I had been through it and would understand the depth of her loss. Now her boys and family sit in the grief of her loss as I do. Prayers to her family as they walk through this journey of grief. -Gay Garner, HS & UT friend, Crested Butte, Colorado.

Such truly heartbreaking and heartwrenching news to just learn of Stephanie's death. Our families go back so many years with an untreatable bond of friendship. My daughter, Jennifer Kidd, is devastated at the untimely loss of a beloved childhood friend. In deep sympathy.

Posted by Bess Mitchell - Austin, TX - Family Friend   August 22, 2020

We were saddened by Stephanie's death, passing so soon in her beautiful life. She joined us two or so years ago to look at all the old pictures of the family so that each of us could choose some to cherish. Since most of her cousins were all there and a few of us old timers it soon became a party of us laughing and sharing memories of old times. We want to remember her that way always with her lovely smile and happy laughter.We know she is in Heaven saved and able to visit all the family that went before her now. We know she will be in our future and will welcome us all home someday. God bless and keep her family and friends and give comfort and peace to us all in this life.

Stephanie, My heart was absolutely broken when I heard you were gone, and I had to accept the fact I would never get to see you again - so joyful and uplifting and beautiful. I love you immensely, and will forever. I have two memories of you that stand out and make my heart smile. One was when we got an extra long Senior lunch (since we never got our Senior lunches), but this day we went swimming - just a small group of girls. We laughed, splashed, and enjoyed every moment of those few hours alone with just our small group of close friends. I loved to see you laugh. The other special memory is the day you won the solo dance competition. You wore a flowing white dress, and moved so beautifully and gracefully across the floor, dancing like an angel in the long flowing white dress. You won first place and we all cried with joy. I thought that day how lucky I was to have seen you dance like that, and receive first place. That's how I picture you now. Dancing in Heaven in a beautiful, flowing white outfit - so graceful and beautiful. You were always so inspiring and shared your best self with us. I know you are a beautiful angel now in Heaven. Don't ever stop dancing. You will be loved and remembered forever. God be with your family in this painful time, and give them comfort and strength. I know if you were here, you wouldn't want anyone to be sad. You always only wanted the best for everyone, and cared deeply about your family. I encourage them to remember how badly you would want them to smile and remember the happy times when they think of you. That's what you would have wanted.

We first met Stephanie when she and Tim came to 'Los Patios' to meet with Chip's Mom and us for brunch. He had just become her financial advisor. We were immediately at ease with both of them, and Stephanie was the beautiful, charming, gracious, stylish woman we would come to know. She had a lot in common with Chip's mom - beauty queens both of them in their day - and social butterflies. We will always remember Stephanie's gentle way and her concern for others. We share your sadness and send our love to Tim and the boys and all the family. May she rest in peace.

Stephanie was one of my dearest friends in middle school and inspired me in high school. I'll never forget that we got to know each other in music class. We sang so many great 70's songs together at the top of our lungs at Turtle Creek County Club, but one that may remind me most of you is by Peter Frampton and especially this part .... The moon appears to shine and light the skies
With the help of some fireflies
I wonder how they have the power to shineI can see them under the pine.... I'll always think of you when I see a bright firefly or a fire cracker in the sky. You were the brightest light, always cheering others on, even when you didn't feel bright. You gave so much to everyone and you were so adored for who you were and radiated so brightly from the inside out. I don't think you ever understood how beautiful you really were. I'll remember how we laughed and shared the love of music, dancing and later talked of our love of raising our two boys and how blessed we were. I'm so proud to have known you but am so crestfallen that we didn't have more time. But some day we'll be together again laughing, singing and dancing. You are so loved, so missed and have left an deep and unique impression forever
In our lives. Rest easy Stephanie
Love, Bonnie

I am deeply saddened by the news of Stephanie's passing. Her and I shared an office when I joined the probation department. I remember her talking about how close she was to her mom. She was stern with probationary but maintained their dignity. Years later when I woukd run into her mom I wouldxalways x ask for her and her mom enjoyed telling me what Stephanie was up to, usually busy with her sons.
Heaven gained a true angel. May she rest in peace.

I can't begin to tell you how saddened I am at hearing of her passing. Whenever, I would have occasion to meet with Tim at their office, I would be just as happy (if not more so) to see her. Once my meeting with Tim was over, she and I invariably would sit and visit, talking about being a "Boy Mom", renovating/home decorating, and so many other things. I can remember more than once telling her, "I've got to go, so I don't get you in trouble with Tim, for visiting too long with me." I just loved her energy, joy, beauty (inside and out) and will forever hear her voice in my mind. Please know that I am sending SO MANY prayers and thoughts for peace and comfort as the loves of her life navigate the days to come.

I have so many happy memories of Stephanie, from UT days when her presence would brighten the ADPi house. My image of her from college is riding her moped to TCBY! And then she blessed our whole family with her friendship and many kindnesses, including lending Parker's stroller to Graham when he was a baby. When I think of Stephanie, I think of light and joy. Our prayers are with Tim, Timothy, and Parker, and with Charlotte and AL, and with her loving extended family. We miss Stephanie and will not forget her.

Stephanie was such a beautiful person both inside and out, and I always looked forward to seeing her at the Galas and other events. She was always so welcoming, and continually offered to help our company in any way she could. Her kindness and loving spirit will be something I will always remember about her. Tim, we are all thinking about you, your boys and the rest of your family and keeping you in our prayers. My sympathy and thoughts are with you, Carole (Miller)

My condolences to the Brown family during this challenging time. I first met the Browns at their annual Christmas party for their clients. At that time, I was not a client however my mother was. I recall how impressed I was that Stephanie knew my mother by name. She introduced herself to me and I remember how her smile just wanted to make you smile. It lit up the room. The next year, I again accompanied my mother to the party. I was floored when she remembered my name. She was one of the reasons I later became a client.
Although I did not know her well, I could see her love for Tim. It showed in her eyes. My heart truly goes out to your family during this difficult time. May you find comfort from your family and friends.
