After a courageous 2 year battle with cancer, Stephanie A. Pristera, age 70, of Rome, passed away peacefully on January 9, 2019 at her home.

Stephanie was born in Huntington, Long Island on November 29, 1948 to the late Lillian Jameson and Donald Kellogg. She graduated from Vernon Verona Sherrill High School and attended Utica Beauty School. Stephanie was a self-employed hairdresser and worked at Hair with Flair.

Stephanie loved doing her customers’ hair and they were precious to her. She also loved being with her grandchildren, who were the light of her life. She was blessed with so many wonderful people in her life, especially her mother in law, Theresa Pristera, and her best friend, Stephanie Smith. She was a member of St. John the Baptist Church.

Stephanie is survived by her daughter, Beth Ann Pristera of Rome; a son, Carmen Pristera of FL; and grandchildren, Desmond, Julkara, Collin, Tristan, and Chance.

In keeping with Stephanie’s wishes, her body is being donated to the anatomical gift program at SUNY Upstate Medical Center.

The family would like to express a special thank you to Hospice for their care and compassion shown to Stephanie during her illness.

A Memorial service will be held on Monday at 4 PM at the Barry Funeral Home, 807 W. Chestnut Street.

I think that we rode the school bus together. I lived on the Old Oneida Road. I remember her smile and jovial personality. My most vivid memory is Stephanie and I having an adventuress walk across the frozen field near where she lived. In later years, when I would come back home to visit my Mom, Doris Witka, she would sometimes mentioned that Stepanie Kellog cut/styled her hair. Thank you Stephanie for our early friendship from Susan Witka

Heaven has gotten it's brightest angel ! I am so sorry for her loss and will miss her dearly.My prayers and thoughts are with you Beth and all the family. May the Lord comfort you and keep you in His arms. She wasn't just my stylist for 20 yrs plus, but a true friend, who advised me on my woes and make me laugh at times till I cried. It was always a treat to be around her. She will continue to be in my heart and prayers until I see her again.

Stephanie was my stylist for over 30 years. My daughter, who was friends with Beth, convinced me to try her - and I did!! No one could do hair like Steph. She was a kind, generous, and loving person. She cared about all her customers. We always had lots of laughs and stories every time I was with her. My heart is breaking - loving thoughts to her family. Keep her memories close!
