Nancy Ann Stevens, 67, passed away Wednesday, March 31, 2010. peacefully at home, Otto Hill, Margaretville, after a courageous eight-month battle with small cell lung cancer. She was surrounded by her close family. She was born Feb. 8, 1943, at Otto Hill, the daughter of Ann Hill Griffin and William Griffin.
Nancy lived at Otto Hill for the majority of her life and very much enjoyed the woods and streams surrounding the house.
She was employed for the last 16 years by the Robinson Broadhurst Foundation in Stamford, where she was the office manager.
Nancy was an avid reader and especially enjoyed books by Debbie Macomber, Nora Roberts and Danielle Steele.
She was fond of saying “And this too shall pass.”
Surviving are a daughter, Jennifer Ann Betz of Otto Hill; her husband of 21 years, Vic Stevens; her godmother, Verna Rufini of Lincoln, N.C.; two stepdaughters, Jennifer Stev-ens of Vermont and Maria Stevens of Hobart; a step grandson, Cooper Steven and two granddogs, Tonka and Toby.
Nancy was a courageous, strong individual right up until the end. Her kindness and warmth will be sorely missed by all who knew her. And her memory will live on through those who remember her.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Catskill Area Hospice in memory of Nancy Ann Stevens.
Funeral services were held April 3 at Hynes Funeral Home, Margaretville.
