LEWISTON – Deborah Jean Stevens, 54, of Sabattus, went home to the house of the Lord on Wednesday, May 12, to again be reunited with her loving husband.

She is survived by her son, Gunnery Sgt. Kevin W. Lerette and his wife, Matina, of Okinawa, Japan; her daughter, Sherry (Lerette) St.Amant and her husband, Richard, of Lisbon; four grandchildren, her “Babies” Katelyn and Nicholas Lerette and Clariece and Jacob St.Amant; sisters, Ramona Naragon and her husband, Thomas, of Lisbon Falls and Pamela Lawrence and her husband, James, of Sonoita, Ariz.; nephew, Richard Ellison; and her kindhearted cousin, Leland Verrill of Leeds.

She was predeceased by her husband, Walter Stevens Sr.; father, Harvey Lewis Verrill; and her mother, Helen Celia (Bressette) Letourneau.
