Stacey Lorraine Hochderffer was born on June 27, 1974 in Salinas, California to Gary and Linda Hochderffer.

In 1976 they moved to Redding where her parents opened Stacey's Jewelers.

Stacey attended Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Redding and in 1986 they moved to Sacramento where she attended Casa Roble High School.

While in Sacramento, she became involved with horses and at the age of fifteen she purchased a quarter horse named Duster. Within two years, Stacey and Duster won the Northern California American Quarter Horse Association Youth All Around Championship. Competing in seven events, Stacey and Duster's showing ended at the AQHA World Championship show held in Fort Worth Texas.

After her horse showing days ended, Stacey applied along with two hundred and thirty thousand applicants for a flight attendant position with United Airlines. Out of those applicants, United hired eighty people. Stacey was one of those eighty. She flew with United for several years until 9-11. The United plane and crew that was hijacked was based at Stacey's terminal in San Francisco. Stacey never flew again.

Stacey met the love of her life when she met David Van Gerpen. They moved to Redding where Stacey Attended Shasta College and obtained an AA degree in Animal Science.

After she received her degree, she gained employment with Crossroads Veterinary Clinic in Palo Cedro.
Stacey was a blonde and would be the first to tell a blonde joke. If she knew anyone having a difficult time in their life, she was there for them until they got past it.

Stacey loved the Lord and Jesus and could talk for hours about them.

Stacey was an angel sent from God.
