Winthrop – Edwina Stevens, 96, a resident of Route 106, Leeds, went to be with the Lord on Monday, July 31, at Heritage Rehabilitation & Living Center after a short illness.

She was born May 27, 1910, the daughter of Sybil Pratt. She was educated in the Livermore schools. On Jan. 15, 1927, in Hallowell, she married Royal Stevens. He passed away in 1976.

She was a member of the Nazarene Church of Leeds. Grammie, as she was known by everyone loved her family and friends and everyone she met. No one was a stranger with her, and she touched the lives of all who met her. She always had a smile on her face and a witty sense of humor that put a smile on everyone else’s face. Gram enjoyed going to the Red Barn for scallops. Her biggest joy was her family.

She enjoyed crocheting, embroidery and word-search puzzles. She always had an open door, with candy and goodies for anyone who visited. Grammie was always up for a game of Skip-Bo or Old Maids with anyone who asked and also loved playing Carom, the game that made everyone’s fingers hurt.

She is survived by three daughters, Elizabeth Murphy and her husband, Joe of Leeds, June Hustins and her husband, Howard, of Burlington, Mass. and Constance Bates and her husband, Harrison, of Winthrop; one son, Burton Stevens and his wife, Kelley, of North Monmouth; she will be sadly missed by 20 grandchildren, Tim and Trent Murphy, Steve, Rick, Barry, and Jim Hustins, Judy Nasta, Howard, Sue, Robert, Trevor, Derek, Royal Jr. Stevens, Heidi Pratt, Vickie McBride, Brenda Deprey, Mike Swanson, Julie Hamner, Jill Abbott and Jaren Bates; 13 great-grandchildren; 11 great-great-grandchildren; also several nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her mother and stepfather, Arthur Burnham; a grandson, Thomas Murphy; a great-grandson, Keeran J. Murphy; and a sister, Ruth Tibbetts.

The family would like to thank all of the doctors and nurses at the DFD Russell Medical Center, the doctors at the Winthrop Medical Center, Turner Rescue and all the employees at Heritage Rehabilitation & Living Center for the care that was given to mother.
