Services for Virginia Lois Stevens, 85, of Levelland, formerly of Morton, will be at 10:00 am on Saturday, October 8, 2022 in the Krestridge Funeral Home Chapel. Interment will follow in the City of Levelland Cemetery.
Lois truly believed no one ever wanted to hear about your aches and pains, so no matter what she was personally feeling, her response was, “I’m wonderful!” Everyone that knew her expected that response from her no matter what knowing it most likely wasn’t true. She was a wonderful cook and prepared many meals for family and friends. During harvest time, she prepared the exact same meals she would have served at her home taking them to the field so everyone could have a good hot meal.
She and her husband cared for all their parents until their deaths. They lead by example, the love and compassion they believed God called them to demonstrate for everyone around them. The 1963 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 would be packed with parents, grandparents and children on a regular basis. That was a normal way of life for her and her family.
Lois passed from this world to a world she truly believed was waiting for her…. Heaven. The love of her life, Alvis, went to help God prepare a place for her June 13, 2021. She decided it was time to join him, Thursday, October 6th, 2022.
Lois was born, May 26, 1937, in a half dugout north of Morton, Texas to Coy Onos and Mamie Durham and her sisters, Mary Ellen (Mur) Perry, Onita (Teenie) Boller and Alice Mae Brunson. All have preceded her in death. In addition to her parents and sisters, her husband, Raymond Alvis Stevens, her grandchildren, Jared Jones, and Natalie Gillie preceded her in death.
Lois married Raymond Alvis Stevens July 26, 1956, in Enochs, Texas. They moved 15 miles southwest of Morton to begin their farming career. They raised five children, Diana Zahn (Sheldon), Dale (Jeanie) Stevens, Doris (Danny)Miller, Darlene (Paul) Fillman and Darrell (Jolyn) Stevens. They have nine grandchildren, Steven Zahn, Mitchell (Chelsea) Stevens, Ashley Stevens Mills, Casey (Dustin) McCorkle, Pamela (Wes)Havens, Kaylee (Skyler) Smith, Ryan (Sara) Fillman, Cody Fillman, Ashlyn (Neal) Simmons. Lois has eight great grandchildren Hudson and Carson Stevens, Keighton Mills, Maverick and Myka McCorkle, Kiersten Gillie, Kaytlyn Dufek, and Dustin Smith.
Lois and Alvis attended County Line Baptist Church north of Morton until its closure, then become active members of First Missionary Baptist Church in Morton. They loved and served at First Missionary Baptist for many years and would love for all donations be given to their church in lieu of flowers.
Our family would like to thank Juanita Banda for the love, care, and compassion she gave our mother over the past months. Caregiving is truly a calling from God and Juanita exemplified it in all ways caring for and becoming our mother’s best friend. Our mother would agree, Juanita helped make her life better in a million and one ways and deserves to be honored on this earth and in Heaven for all she’s done and continues to do for so many people.
