Jan and Mike McKay would like to thank everyone for all their support and for everything being done for them right now. They said they are overwhelmed by the love and support they’ve received.

With deep sadness and profound regret, the Tulsa Figure Skating Club must inform you of the passing of one of our dearest members, Stephanie Anne McKay.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the McKay family.

Stephanie Anne McKay’s Obituary:

As it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage, now as always, Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or death. For to me, to live is Christ, to die is gain.”

“Only one life twill soon be past, only what’s done for Christ will last”, is how Stephanie Anne McKay, (Sam), lived her full and complete life. Her family loved her dearly, and she had many wonderful loving friends. She was a beautiful young lady, both inside and out, and lived life to the fullest (Philippians 1:20-21). Throughout her life, she had great faith in Jesus Christ, always under God’s grace, certain of her eternal security. Sam was blessed with many gifts; she was a beautiful figure skater, a fabulous artist, a great student, loved to read, but struggled at volleyball! Stephanie was always happy to share her time to help others. Her family and friends will cherish their memories of her.

She was given to us on February 24th, 1994, Dallas, Texas.
Stephanie McKay was promoted to Heaven on October 9th, 2008, Tulsa Oklahoma.
