Fatherless Daughters began as a way for Stephanie Daily to use her voice to put her feelings of grief after losing her Father, John Eppich, out into the universe. At the time she was feeling very alone, isolated, it was a very scary time in her life. Little did she know that there were other women that were grieving the loss of their Fathers as well and were connecting with what she was saying. The Facebook page “Fatherless Daughters” grew and grew, into a now global sisterhood. Fatherless Daughters is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to help women through their grief journey, it is also to empower women to help other sisters that are grieving by lifting each other up when they are feeling their lowest.
We welcome all donations; whether you make a one time gift, or set up a monthly donation, you are essential to our mission.
Stephanie’s Dad, John Eppich worked at St. Simon The Apostle . When Stephanie’s dad was in the hospital all of the kids sent get well cards to “Mr. John” that Stephanie’s mom still has. When she contacted the school about wanting to do 2 scholarships for the graduating class (2018) of 8th graders (who were in Kindergarten when they sent the get well cards) Sue from St. Simon was overwhelmed. The scholarships will be for 1 girl and 1 boy of the graduating class of 2018. Stephanie will attend the 8th grade ceremony where she will be able to present the scholarships in “Mr. John’s” name to the special 8th graders.
Stephanie’s Dad loved the children at St. Simon and loved serving people. It will be Fatherless Daughters’ great honor to award these scholarships to two outstanding students from the class of 2018.
