St. Andrew Women’s Club Catholic Woman of the Year 2024

                Deborah Stonefield

Faith, family, and diligent labor are the beliefs of Deborah Stonefield.  Add to that a lifetime of volunteerism and you have a perfect recipe for a woman to be admired and emulated. Deborah’s heritage is Irish, on her mother’s side, and Italian, on her fathers.  Both hard working Catholic parents of five children welcomed their daughter into their family in 1947 in Brockton, Massachusetts. The Sisters of Charity and the Baltimore Catechism introduced her into the deeper tenants of her faith. Deborah and her husband, Michael, met in high school and married in 1965.  Within three years they became parents to three wonderful children.  Deborah raised the family while Mike pursued a career in computer science.  Eventually, Deborah was able to complete her college degree in psychology while also volunteering in  the various parishes where they lived. Once Deborah and Mike retired to Myrtle Beach, they joined St. Andrew Parish.  After a few years, their children and nine loving grandchildren also settled in the Carolinas. Their son’s children received the sacraments at St. Andrew and were also altar servers while Mike Jr. taught CCD classes.

 Not only is Deborah involved with the Women’s Club, but she volunteers in the following:

 * President of the Myrtle Beach Lion’s Club providing free vision screening for local residents and students at St. Andrew Elementary School.

* Member of the Rosary Maker Committee since 2009.

* Worked in the gift shop.

* Served as Women’s Club Treasurer for one year.

* Grand Strand Miracle League Golf and Baseball Programs for special needs children.

* Family Stress and Suicide Prevention phone lines while living in California.

* Assisting victims of rape and sexual abuse also while in California.

* Teaching CCD classes in various other places of residence.


Deborah is truly living her beliefs in faith, family and service to others and is therefore deserving of this award.

Congratulations Deborah Stonefield!
