Meet the Knieriem Family
She’s one of the most caring and giving people that I've ever met in my life. She will bend over backwards to help people in need, and she loves her students so much. She's also a mother and a wife.
Stephanie is married to Brandon, a hard-working husband, and father, willing to take on multiple jobs to provide for his family. Despite working long hours, Brandon delights in finding ways to create and build, using his craft to construct items for the family home.
With 5 children, ranging in age from 1 to 16 years old, the Knieriem family was excited to purchase their dream home during the summer of 2020. Moving into their larger home, each family member looked forward to finally having a space of their own. From new paint to a DIY cabinet reface, the family set to work making their new house feel like home. Between Stephanie’s eye for design and Brandon’s renovation skills, the new space quickly started to take shape.
Unfortunately, shortly after purchasing their home issues began to arise, taking up much of the family’s attention and finances. The furnace system was failing, requiring a new unit to ensure that the home would stay warm through the impending winter. In addition, the family found they needed a new oven after Stephanie discovered the current oven was not working properly. With COVID affecting both Stephanie and Brandon’s positions at work, the family had limited finances and a growing list of to-dos for the house. They began to worry that some of the needed home repairs would be placed on the back burner, like a new roof.
After supporting their friends, family, and community through many ups and downs during the pandemic, it came as no surprise that a fellow Puyallup School District bus driver, Sarah, returned that support by nominating the family for the Peace of Mind program.
