Mrs. Stevens was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her family. Upon raising their daughters, she worked for the Aledo ISD as the cafeteria coordinator and retired after 25-plus years. She always had a smile and was known for her delicious fried apple pies and her special cards and personal handwritten notes she sent to everyone. She was a longtime member of the Aledo First Baptist Church.
Stevens was preceded in death by her husband of 56 1/2 years, Walter Stevens, in February 1995; seven brothers; 13 sisters; and a daughter, Floy Jean Talley in March 2002.
Survivors include daughters, Geneva Ford and husband, Charles of Rising Star, Winna Tinney and husband, William, of Poolville, and Ethelda Sue Bartee and husband, Gil, of Benbrook; son-in-law, Nelson Talley, of Albuquerque, N.M.; grandchildren, William Tinney, Windy Tinney, April Simmons, Walt Ford, Quint Ford, Chris Ford, Bill Talley, and Jaidyn Swartz-Bartee; great-grandchildren, Kaylee Ford, Kaydee Ford, Matthew Ford, Treavor Ford, Megan Ford, Wes Ford, Candace Smith, Sam Simmons, Don Simmons, Dillon Spears, Carley Spears; two great-great-grandchildren on their way; and many nieces and nephews and a faithful group of dear friends.
