Connie Stephens Obituary

Connie Jean Stephens, 64, of Beallsville, Ohio passed away in Wheeling Hospital, Monday, September 11, 2023.  She was born October 5, 1958 in Barnesville, Ohio, one of three daughters of the late Hubert “Gene” and Wanda Kemp Wheeler. 

Connie was a retired employee of the former ORMET Rolling Mill near Hannibal, Ohio.  She had also worked for years as an accountant, bookkeeper, and a licensed tax professional preparing taxes for both individuals and businesses.  Connie was a lady of many talents and interests with a work ethic that was second to none.  She will be remembered for her gentle spirit and boundless energy however with that energy she also brought a sensitivity and quiet dignity to each task on which she was working.  Her creativity and artistic talent brought comfort and peace each year as the grave blankets and wreaths she lovingly created graced the graves of countless families in cemeteries far and near.  Connie was happiest spending time with her children and grandchildren.  Her time as “Me Me” to her four grandchildren brought her the greatest joy of her life. 

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Jesse Stephens on November 20, 2014, also by a sister, Sharon Shriver.  Left to cherish her memory are her children, Jessica Stephens of the home, Jaime (Rhett) Swallie of Ozark, and Tony (Alyssa) Stephens of Lewisville; her grandchildren, Paisley and Jessie Swallie and Gwenyth and Kristopher Stephens; a sister, Kathy (Daniel) Clark of Bethesda, also a niece, Christine.  

According to Connie’s wishes, there will be no visitation.  Private services will be held at a time of the family’s choosing and burial will be in Beallsville Cemetery beside her beloved Jesse.  In lieu of flowers and keepsakes Connie's family requests that memorial contributions be made to the MACO Workshop, 47013 State Route 26, Woodsfield, Ohio 43793.
