Violet R. Stevens

March 11, 1955 - January 20, 2019

Violet Ruth Day Stevens was born in Terre Haute, Indiana, on March 11, 1955, to Charles and Elsie Day. She passed away on January 20, 2019 in Fort Myers, Florida.

She was raised in Burnett and graduated from North High School. She was tested in 2002 and her IQ was 148. She was a talented artist, who loved drawing with chalk or pencils and creating things with cloth and fabric. She enjoyed working as a Nurse for many years at various Nursing Homes. Thanks to the excellent care she received from Dr. Loveall in the 90s, she was able to enjoy the 21st Century. Every New Year’s Eve, she would love listening to Stacie Kenneth Wagle sing her favorite song “My Girl” and finishing the night as “Elvis” with the The Country Nomads and drinking with Sharon Wagle. She loved traveling and visiting with family during reunions.

She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter and son in law, Rashel (Shelly) and Trek Barnes, and her grandsons, Jedidiah and Samwise Barnes; her brothers, Charles and Tom Day; her sisters and brothers in law, Margaret and Chuck Morton, Mary and Don Coomer; along with numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, aunts, great nieces and nephews, and great great nieces and nephews.

Violet was preceded in death by her parents; her brothers, Robert and John Day, and her husband, Raymond Stevens.

Violet loved her husband’s family as much as she loved her own and both sides were combined for many of their adventures.

There will be a Celebration of Life at the German Club in Terre Haute, Indiana, on Saturday, February 2, 2019, from Noon until 4:00 PM. Violet will buried with her husband at the Sarasota National Cemetery at a later date.

Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Fort Myers, is entrusted with final care.
