STEVENS, ANN GREY ALEXANDER, 59, of Crestwood, passed away Tuesday, October 5, 2010, after her heroic battle with lung disease.
She leaves behind her beloved son, Austin Craig Stevens and her dear husband, Richard H. Stevens; her sister, Merilee Jones; niece, Lindsay Jones; and many other relatives, dear friends, and school colleagues.
Through the years, Ann was well known for her quick wit, her humor, her intellect, and her passion for life. She was passionate about playing golf, sunning by the country club pool, reading, gardening, shopping, watching her favorite shows, going to movies, and most importantly being with her family and friends. She was a risk taker no doubt, backpacking through Europe in 1974, jumping out of an airplane in her 20's, and flying a hot air balloon just two years ago.
Her life's work was teaching children, and that she did. For 35 years, Ann taught kindergarten and first- grade at Crestwood Elementary School beginning in 1973. She was known as the "Diva of Crestwood School" because of her knowledge of the school, the people, and the children.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 9th at Crestwood United Methodist Church. Visitation will be 4-8 p.m. on Friday, October 8th at Stoess Funeral Home.
Memorial contributions may be made to Crestwood School Library Fund, and to Hosparus.
