Dorothy Stevens Obituary

Dorothy Eleanor Stevens passed away January 27, 2024. 

Born March 25, 1930 to Ray and Ruth Rose Cole of Winfield, KS Dorothy was a good-natured friend, supporter and caregiver to many. 

Dorothy married high school sweetheart Bob in May 1949. While raising four children in Wichita, KS she also taught pre-school at Little Red Wagon and later at St. Francis Hospital where she remained for 25 years prior to retiring. 

Dorothy liked to keep active with many hobbies and interests - sewing & crafting, gardening, reading, watching Shocker & KU basketball games, playing board games of all kinds, doing puzzles, and spending time with friends and family. Her travel bug began at a young age while attending the World’s Fair with her parents, later vacationing with family throughout Colorado. She loved celebrations and would honor most any birthday with a freshly baked angel food cake. Dorothy enjoyed socializing and gathering with others. God and church activities also played a significant role in her life. 

Dorothy is preceded in death by her husband of 68 years Robert Rawlins Stevens; Sister JoAnn Wood of Wichita, KS; Son Brian of Lake City, MI.

She is survived by Daughter’s Sue Rikli and Carol Holmes, Son Jim, Grandchildren: Zack & Michelle Myers, Jeremiah Wilson, Hannah Garrison of Wichita, KS; Amy & Clint Bales of Denver, CO; Alexander Russi of Brooklyn, NY; Melissa Stevens of RI; Amber Stevens of Boston, MA; Dezaray Daniels of FL, Brian Stevens Jr, Jessica Wilson, Vince Fultz, Danielle Kelley of MI, and Great Grandchildren: 20 & counting!

She will be sorely missed and fondly remembered by her friends and family.
