Afton Stephens, born July 20, 1919 in Anna, Ill., and formally a resident of Sun Valley, quietly made her way to heaven on July 10, 2007.
Afton moved from Sun Valley to Bridgeview Estates in Twin Falls, Idaho, where she courageously and graciously battled ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease) during the last three years of her life. She was preceded in her passing by her husband, Dennis, and son, Gary.
Afton dearly loved her family, friends and church. Her smiling face, sense of humor, and loving personality will be greatly missed by her daughter, Nancy, son-in-law, Jeff, and grandsons, Rod and Maxwell.
Afton was very grateful for her friends and caregivers who visited and cared for her during her time in Sun Valley and at Bridgeview Estates.
Services for Afton were held at the New Palestine Christian Church in New Palestine, Ind., where she lived the majority of her life prior to moving to Sun Valley.
