Sheila Kae Stevens, 78, passed peacefully on June 2, 2017 at Iowa Methodist Hospital in Des Moines. She was born April 22,1939 to William and Frances Keefer in Des Moines.
Sheila was kind-hearted with a generous smile and compassion for others. Her family and friends meant everything to her, and her love for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren was endless. Sheila enjoyed camping, making beautiful cross-stitch designs, playing card games, and, of course, watching her Iowa Hawkeyes football!
Sheila worked in the accounting field for several companies in the Des Moines area and retired in 1996 from Amerus. Sheila and her husband then became “Snowbirds” and moved to Naples, FL where she enjoyed her love of warm weather and beaches for many wonderful years.
Left to cherish Sheila’s memory include her husband of 62 years, David W. Stevens; children: William (Terri) Stevens, Michelle (David) Lewis; grandchildren: Joshua (Arrie) Stevens, Sarah (Sean) Adams, Nicholas (Robin) Stevens, Jennifer Stevens, Shannon (Ben) Gunty, and Shawna Lewis; 6 great-grandchildren; and sisters: Sheryle (Tom) Drake, and Sindy (Marty) English.
She was preceded in death by her parents, William and Frances Keefer.
