Obituary of Lois Ann Stevens
Lois Ann Stevens, 70, of Jackson passed away on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 at home after a long and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. She was born in Elizabeth, grew up in Rahway and Linden, and had lived in Manalapan before settling in Jackson in 2006. While attending college at Kean University, she met her husband Gregory. Lois was a Third Grade Teacher at the Clark Mills School in Manalapan for 37 years, where she obtained Teacher of the Year, before retiring in 2005. She had a lasting imprint on many of her students, some of who went out of their way to seek her out over the years, and went on to become lawyers, doctors, and teachers. Lois truly enjoyed sitting on the beach with her friends and a good book. Above all else, she enjoyed spending quality time with her family and caring for her grandchildren.
She was predeceased by her parents, Arnold and Evelyn Katz. Lois is survived by her loving husband of 47 years, Gregory Stevens; daughter, Melissa Tice and her husband, Christopher of Freehold Township; son, Brian Stevens and his wife, Becky of Wall; twin grandchildren, Ashleigh and Michael; sister, Janet Jackson of Florida; and numerous in-laws, nieces, and nephews.
