Florence Mary Stephens
Florence Mary Stephens, 75, entered the arms of her Savior on September 29, 2021. She was born on May 15, 1946, in Los Angeles, California to the late Laurence and Margaret (Moulton) Davis.
Florence was very motivated in life. She graduated from Bell High School. Florence then went on to attend Cerritos College and Arkansas State University-Beebe. She obtained her bachelor’s degree. Florence once stated the best advice she ever received was “You can do anything you set your mind to.” She lived by that motto and retired from a successful career as a parts specialist and inventory supervisor for Toyota. Not only was education important to her but her faith as well. She attended River of Life Church. Her faith also motivated her to volunteer at the Optimist Club, Church youth and community events, Samaritan’s Purse, and Easter Seals of Washington State. Florence loved football especially her teams the Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos (Payton Manning), Arkansas Razorbacks and baseball team, Los Angeles, Angels. She loved eating popcorn, sherbet ice cream, and carrot cake. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Left to cherish her memory are two sons; Michael Stephens and Jon (April) Stephens, one daughter; Janie Stout, seven grandchildren; Alexandra, Mia and Zachariah Stephens, Christopher Stout, Eileena Stout, Raeann Stephens, Cambria Stephens, two great-grandchildren; Valeri and Selena Stout, one brother; Keith Davis, one sister; Margaret Rossback, In laws; Charles and Desta Stephens, Evelyn Forrest, Susie Davis, and Don Peterson, as well as a large number of Nieces and Nephews.

I wasn't as close to Aunt Florence while I was growing up. She and the family were in California while I was in Arkansas. However, after college we were able to get reacquainted.
She was a loving aunt to me and Billy. I loved her and I will miss her. I know she is with Uncle Larry and her siblings. Sunil we all meet again
