Born May 27, 1921, in Lawrence County, she was the daughter of Delbert A. and Ethel (Allen) Todd.
She retired from Indiana Limestone Company after 33 years in the personnel office and had worked many happy years in the office at RCA prior to World War II.
Her parents, Delbert A. and Ethel Todd; her husband, John Jay Stevens; her sisters, Thelma Lois Todd, Gaile Cummings, Marjorie Todd, and Dorothy Dean (as a child); and also one brother, Ralph F. Todd and another brother in infancy, preceded her in death.
She will be sadly missed by her two daughters, Susan Ann Vallion of Fort Wayne and Diana Gaile Bryant of Bedford; her two sons-in-law, Robert D. Vallion and Johnie Bryant; three grandchildren whom she loved dearly: Laura Isom (Todd) Gross of Bloomington, Rob (Susan) Bryant of Indianapolis, and Rachel Bryant (Brad) Harmon of Portland, Oregon. Five great grandchildren will miss her hugs and kisses and “special treats” she always shared at the kitchen table.
A more honest person could not be found.
A graveside service will be at 2:00 p.m. Thursday, November 6, at Lawrenceport Cemetery with Rev. Max Timbrook officiating.
