Our Mom was born in Cisco, Texas, and raised by her grandmother and grandfather in Dalton, Georgia.
She went to work at the age of 13 in a chenille bedspread making plant, grapefruit canning plants and during the war helped make and inspect parachutes. She was going to work in an airplane factory but changed her mind. She married Carl Amon Stevens, who had just come back from his tour of duty in WWII. They moved to Colorado and then to Vernal, where she stayed the remainder of her life.
She waitressed at Jim’s Cafe, 7-11 Ranch Restaurant, worked with the School District and spent her last 16 years making saddle cinches at The Old Standard Saddle Tree.
She is survived by two sisters, a brother, many nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her daughter, Carol Stevens Brewer and her son, Carl Stevens, grandchildren, Aron (Kris) Brewer, Mark (Karen) Brewer, 10 great-grandchildren and several great-great-grandchildren.
