Those left to celebrate her life are her daughter, Donna Stephens Price and her husband, Sonny, of Junction, Texas, and Jo Beth Stephens Everett and her husband, John, of Snyder. Two nieces, Dianne Hamblen and her husband James of Ruidoso, New Mexico, and Janice Jo Ireland and her husband, Dave of Fulshear, Texas. One nephew, David Smith and his fiancé, Lesa Sonnier of Snyder.
Our precious mother loved Jesus and her family. Her life was a blessing to her family and to all of those who knew her.
