Barbara Jean Stevens passed away on Dec. 9, 2012, at the age of 81. A resident of Carson City for 59-years, she and her husband, Robert, traveled across the country from New York and Pennsylvania to Florida and further to the west, ultimately settling in Nevada.
Along with raising 3-children and maintaining a home, Barbara spent the majority of her working career at NDOT, retiring after 30-years of service.
Barbara loved life, her children and grandchildren, basketball, music and dancing, and memories of her high school times and friends, all of which brought her smiles and laughter. She tried never to miss a sporting event and, whether child vs child or grandchild vs grandchild, enjoyed the family competition. She had a wonderful personality, a great smile and sense of humor, and always gave more of her heart and herself than she could.
She lived for and through her children and their families, Karen (Stevens) and Mark Rutledge; Mark Stevens; and Robert (Bob) and Shelly Stevens; grandchildren: Tamra and Cody Stevens, Candice and Matthew Rutledge, Justin Stevens; and great-grandson, Dwight. She was preceded by her husband, Robert.
At her request, no funeral or memorial service will be held.
