Evelyn M. Stevens

BERNE- Evelyn M Stevens, 74, of Berne, passed away on July 21, 2021 after fighting to stay in this world until the end. 

Evelyn was born on February 15, 1947 to the late Lewis and Lillian Briggs of Knox. She

graduated from Berne-Knox-Westerlo Central School District. She worked for the New York State Thruway and retired after 36 years of service.

In grade school, she met Gilbert Stevens Sr. and the two were inseparable from that point on. Evelyn and Gilbert were married for over 54 years. Evelyn was a fiercely dedicated mom, wife, nanny, auntie and friend. Family came first and was above all else to Evelyn, a value she instilled in all those around her. The hole left by her absence is impossible to fill.

She is survived by her devoted husband Gilbert Stevens Sr.; her children, Gilbert Stevens Jr. (Kim), Christina Maxwell (Shawn); her grandchildren, Breeane Hillyerd (John), Ethan Stevens, Anthony Clements, Riley Maxwell; her great grandchildren, Jake Hillyerd and Julia Hillyerd; her sister, Beverly Shimmer (Fred); and so many kids/friends she loved like her own.

Calling hours will be held on Saturday, August 7, 2021 from 12-3PM at Fredendall Funeral Home, 199 Main Street, Altamont.

Donations may be made in Evelyn’s memory to American Heart Association, 4 Atrium Dr #100, Albany, NY 12205

My neighbor, my friend! Our evenings of chit chatting on your porch or mine after dinner, talking about how the cats got fleas and the dog can't sing. Such good memories. She made family of most and had 'her' kids all over - she loved them all, loved us all. I will miss you neighbor! Love you Gil Sr, Gil Jr and Chris and of course Evelyn!
