Ruth Warner Stevens, age 89, beloved wife of Dr. Wallace R. Stevens, mother, grandmother and friend, passed away in her home in Fillmore Utah on March 17, 2015.
Ruth is best remembered for her positive, happy, loving and social personality. She was full of life and generous and kind beyond words. Ruth had a deep love for people, animals, education, art and music. She loved to read, paint and play piano and she always had an animal at her side. She loved to travel with family and friends and spent many vacations on the beach and in the mountains. Ruth lived an abundant, joyful life that she truly loved and appreciated.
Ruth was an honor student all her academic life and believed education was the greatest gift you could give yourself. She earned her undergraduate degree in Finance and Education and later attended the Utah State University where she earned her Master of Education. Ruth and Wally lived in Salt Lake City, where she worked as a secretary for Governor Herbert Maw. She later worked as a respected and adored educator for 26 years at Olympus High School. Ruth and Wally spent several winters in Arizona on the "Funny Farm" with their cherished friends, and retired in her hometown, Fillmore Utah.
Ruth had three children, Robyn now deceased, Randall (Shelley) now deceased, and Roslyn (Gary), ten grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. Ruth was preceded in death by her parents, siblings Roland, Ward and Claire, two children, Robyn and Randall, granddaughter Ashley, and great-granddaughter Robyn. She treasured and loved her family, especially her grandchildren, and took pride and joy in all their accomplishments.
A special thanks to all the care-givers who loved Ruth and made it possible for her last years to stay in her home.
