Mary Elizabeth "Beth" Stephenson born June 8, 1956 to John Edmund Pettet and Lessie Rae (Seitz) Pettet in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, passed away on July 29, 2014 at the age of 58. The Pettet family moved to Houston from Poplar Bluff early in Beth's life, essentially making her a native Houstonian. She graduated Lamar High School and then attended Houston Baptist University, where she achieved a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing, enabling her to pursue her childhood dream of healing children through pediatric care. Beth is survived by her husband, John Patrick "Pat" Stephenson. The two met in their college years through an introduction from a mutual friend, sparking the beginning of a wonderful, loving relationship of over 35 years which included the blessing of two incredible daughters, Kelli Stephenson and Kristen Steen. Also surviving is her sister, Carol Ann Nawara and nieces. A memorial service will be held at St Paul's United Methodist Church at 5501 Main St, Houston, TX 77004 on Friday, August 1, 2014 at 3pm. In lieu of gifts, please consider a donation to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, 60 East 56th Street, 8th Floor, New York, NY 10022 in honor of "Mary Elizabeth Stephenson" or to a .
