Sept. 5, 1970 — June 18, 2019

Stephanie Lynn Kundert Al­varez, age 48, passed away on Tues­day, June 18, 2019 sur­rounded by fam­ily and loved ones. Stephanie lost her coura­geous bat­tle with breast can­cer. She never gave up and she was a true warrior un­til the end.

Stephanie was born Septem­ber 5, 1970 in Lodi to Niles and Jeanne Soucie Kundert and was sis­ter to Michelle Kundert and Kris­tine Kundert Tomek. On Au­gust 14, 1993 Paul Al­varez and Stephanie were mar­ried. They had 3 chil­dren; Dusty, Levi and Jor­dan. Stephanie was an out­stand­ing wife, mother, daugh­ter, sis­ter and best friend.

Stephanie was raised in Lodi and at­tended Lodi schools. Through­out her young life she played soc­cer and was al­ways in­volved in the bi­cy­cle world. She grad­u­ated from Lodi High School in 1988 and went on to Delta Col­lege to study busi­ness. Stephanie spent most of her work life in­volved in bi­cy­cle shops and then be­came the owner of City Bi­cy­cles. After that, she spent the last 10 years build­ing a busi­ness with the Fas­te­nal com­pany. Stephanie was driven and pas­sion­ate about her work and took great pride in what she had ac­com­plished.

Stephanie lived for her fam­ily and they were most im­por­tant to her. Paul and Stephanie cre­ated a beau­ti­ful fam­ily to­gether and that is what she was most proud of. She en­joyed go­ing camp­ing, quad rid­ing, the ocean, shop­ping, base­ball games, Hawaii, and the SF Gi­ants. She was out­go­ing and al­ways ready to have fun. She sup­ported her hus­band and her kids with what­ever they were do­ing and al­ways gave 110%. She was known to help any­one and ev­ery­one. She has given so much to the peo­ple around her and was al­ways there to lis­ten. She was loyal and al­ways wanted the best for peo­ple and did what­ever she could to get them where they needed to go.

Stephanie is sur­vived by her hus­band, Paul and her chil­dren, Dusty, Levi and Jor­dan. Her par­ents Niles and Jeanne Kundert, sis­ter and brother-in-law, Kris­tine and Greg Tomek, and neph­ews Jett and Jus­tus Tomek.

Stephanie was pre­ceded in death by her sis­ter Michelle Kundert, grand­par­ents Carl and Es­ther Kundert and Vin­cent and Vir­ginia Soucie.

There will be a cel­e­bra­tion of life on Mon­day, July 1st at Hutchins Street Square in Lodi at 11:00 am. In lieu of flow­ers, please do­nate in Stephanie’s name to the UCSF Helen Diller Fam­ily Com­pre­hen­sive Can­cer Cen­ter at 1600 Divisadero Street, San Fran­cisco, CA 94115.
