Stephenson, Barbara (nee Vincic)
It is with great sadness that the family of Barbara Vincic Stephenson announces her passing after a courageous fight against breast cancer, at the age of 56.
Barbara will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 28 years, Philip Stephenson, their children, Miles Stephenson and Ashley Stephenson, her parents Radovan and Petra Vincic, her Brother Momcilo Vincic and by her nieces, extended family and dear friends.
Barbara was born in Prnjavor, Yugoslavia (now Bosnia-Herzegovina) and came to the United States with her family on April 30, 1969. She grew up in the Chicago area and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Microbiology from Indiana University and Master's Degree in International Management from the American Graduate School of International Management, also known as Thunderbird.
