I have lived in Enid since graduation in 1960; having moved to Enid in junior high, from my ancestral roots in the St. Louis, Missouri area. I now have new roots planted here, seasoned with time; family and memories.
I married Leon Stevens on October 22, 1961. He has been in the carpet contracting business for 49 years now. (Stevens Floor Covering) He graduated from Carrier High School in 1961.
We have three children, eleven grandchildren, one great grandchild and one grandchild deceased.
all three of my children graduated from Enid High School as did one of my grandchildren in 2010.
At this time I have 2 other grandchildren at Enid High School.
Our children are Tami Stevens Henry (Steve); Tommy Stevens (Elaine); and Timi Stevens Wood Tim).
Other grandchildren are: Hunter, Storm, Tommy II, Starri, Tiffany, Nash, Keeley, Branson, Brady, Blake, Briley Hope, Great Grandchild Kentley, and deceased grandchild Journey Brooke.
We have been blessed, as each one is a special gift from the Lord.
I have been staying active in the community by being involved in church, volunteer work in different places, nursing homes, hospitals, Enid Cemetery, etc.
I am now on the board of Enid Cemetery, having served in two capacities as treasurer and President.
I also have my own personal care and needs business. “Cottage Charm Care” –A Handle with Care –A Handle with Prayer Service.
This is such a great joy and a wonderful opportunity for me, as my heart is to always help others.
It is a very fulfilling life. I also carry a minister’s license which helps me to more involved with their care, if need be.
My goals are to always put the Lord first, then family, and then helping others and the Community.
I desire to continue to learn and grow as I walk day by day on my life’s journey.
