It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the death of our beloved friend and board member, Stephanie Tyler on February 13, 2021. Stephanie has been a stalwart member of PFLAG Portland's board and an unflinching advocate for LGBTQ+ rights. Her empathetic and loving support has touched so many families here in Greater Portland over decades and helped increase acceptance of and support for our LGBTQ+ loved ones. Words cannot capture her vibrance, energy and the devotion that she brought to PFLAG. Our hearts go out to her family and close friends in this difficult time. http://www.hobbsfh.com/obituary/stephanie-tyler
