I am a great nephew of Don and Maud (my grandfather and Don were brothers), and just recently came across this board. As far as the (Ohio) Grady family was concerned, Don and Maud did the parenting job, so my mom and her sister considered Stephanie their cousin. I was only 12 when we got the call about the plane, and how they couldn't find Stephanie.
Our family visited Don and Maud at their place in South Carolina about 3 years after the accident. Don kept her MG in the carport and Maud had the guest bedroom set up with Stephanie's furniture and even her perfume bottles, just as it had been in Miami. They never recovered, which I now understand as a parent myself.
It's good to hear from others who knew her.
