Stacy Renee Hendrix of 1785 Lodi Station Road, Lodi passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, January 3, 2004 at the age of 30.

Born on February 8, 1973 in Ithaca, Stacy was the daughter of Richard "Skip" and Joline Wellin Hendrix of Interlaken. She attended the South Seneca Schools and enjoyed her involvement in the 4-H Horse program for many years. This deep love of horses was evidenced by her representation of Seneca County at the State Fair where she garnered a third place ribbon in 1987 in "Western Pleasure". Her smile and quick wit would brighten any room when she walked in. Stacy's fun-loving spirit will forever warm the hearts of all who knew and loved her.
