On the 21st day of May 1906, Mrs. S.A. Stephens crossed over the boundary that divides this life from the unknown beyond. Grandma, as she was called by her many friends, was born in Kentucky on the 25th day of December, 1829. Her husband died soon after the close of the Civil War, leaving a family of seven children dependent upon her. One son died in his young manhood, and only four of her six living children she left behind were here to go with her to her last resting place. One daughter living in St. Louis and another in Memphis, were too far away to get here to see her for the last time, their cherished mother.
After leaving Kentucky she resided a number of years near Mobeetie, Texas, but the last twelve years of her life was spent with her son, E.F. Stephens, in Cheyenne, and no mother ever had a more devoted and loyal son than he, for he was the staff of her declining years and made her home restfully content.
Grandma had been a consistent member of the ME Church, South, for a number of years and her greatest delight was found in attending church service. She was an invalid for several years before her death, but not confined to her bed all the time and we love to think of her as we so often saw her sitting with her open Bible on her lap reading with pleasure and trusting so faithfully the precious promises of the Father she delights to serve. Like the Patriarchs of old, her faith never wavered and the end was peace. --A Friend
