Obituary of Stephanie J. Pervall
Stephanie Joy Pervall, departed this life to join the heavenly chorus on Saturday, May 2, 2020. She was born on September 10, 1963 in San Antonio, Texas. Her parents are Joseph Pervall and Jessie Pervall, and her sister is Stacy Jo Pervall. Stephanie spent her younger years in Richmond, VA until her family moved to New Jersey when she was 5 years old. Steph's education was in the Willingboro School system from 1 st through 12 th grades – graduating from John F. Kennedy High School in 1981.
After high school, Stephanie enrolled in her chosen college – Lehigh University. She sang in the University Choir all four years she was a student there, and remained in touch with University choral events until her passing. She especially loved attending Christmas Vespers on campus. Stephanie maintained her support of Lehigh throughout her adult life, even serving on Lehigh's Alumni Association Board of Directors for two years.
While at Lehigh, Stephanie joined the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. She was a founding member of the graduate chapter of Pi Mu Omega in Burlington County in 1986. Stephanie's career began at RCA in Moorestown NJ, then she moved on to work at AT&T at its headquarter locations in Basking Ridge and Bridgewater NJ. She retired from AT&T after being an employee there for 25 years.
Stephanie was a long-standing member of the Willingboro Presbyterian Church, where she served in many capacities, including Choir Director and Youth Advisor. She participated in music ministries at Parkway Baptist and St. Paul Methodist Churches, and was a frequent soloist at Rossmoor Retirement worship center. Stephanie had also been a member of the NJ Master Chorale since 2012. The one thing that was a constant in Stephanie's life was music -- she sang!! We believe that her voice might still be heard reverberating in church buildings, in banquet rooms and at concert facilities. She sang at weddings, funerals, family gatherings, sorority and organizational events.
Stephanie was a gifted songstress and generously shared her musical talents.
In addition to her parents and sister, Stephanie leaves to mourn her dearest Uncle Stanley; special Aunts Frances, Lucia, Adeline and Bobbie Lee; a host of loving cousins including Vernon, LeLe, Jerry, Woody, Chanda, Shelly and Candace; special family connections Eva Render, Ron Covil, Stephen Ball and Thierry Cuvelier; and a myriad of friends, sorors and church family members.
Memorial Services for Stepanie and her father, Joseph, will be held on April 1,2023 at 11am at the Presbyterian Church of Willingboro, 494 Beverly Road, Willingboro,NJ, 08046.
