Reflection Of Life
Adell Stevens, passed away peacefully on the first day of autumn, Wednesday, September 22, 2021, at home surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on October 17, 1928. On May 14, 1966, Adell married her sweetheart, Charlie. They were married for 40 years and during their union, they brought into their lives two children, Jeffrey L. Stevens of Mount Laurel, New Jersey and Ray Janeen Stevens of Burlington Township, New Jersey.
Adell retired from Buttonwood Hospital as a nurse’s aide after 22 years of service. Once retired she pursued and obtained her high school diploma. Adell, as well as her family, were so proud of this accomplishment. The importance of the belief in God and His divinity was instilled in Adell at an early age; and, as a child, she accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Savior. Adell was a former Eastern Star and also served as an usher and a trustee at Second Baptist Church in Mount Holly, New Jersey, for many years. During the time of her illness, she often spent quite time in prayer asking for peace and guidance while reflecting upon the place where she could be with the Lord and be free from pain. Adell was preceded in death by her husband, Charlie Stevens, Jr., her mother, Charlotte Bellamy and one brother Junior Bellamy.
Adell enjoyed reading scriptures, spending time with her children, socializing with friends who became extended family and dining out. She loved to eat and her food better be hot when served! Her greatest joys were the times spent with her husband and watching her children grow. Adell often expressed the pride she felt for her children and was always there to provide them with guidance and support.
Adell leaves, with cherished memories of her, two children, Jeffrey L. Stevens (Donna), of Mount Laurel, New Jersey, and Ray Janeen Stevens, of Burlington Township , New Jersey; two grandchildren, Morgan and Zachary Perkins of Mount Laurel, New Jersey; one grand goddaughter, Nayomi Angueiro, of Mount Holly, New Jersey; a nephew, Steve Russell Stevens; a great niece, Stephanie Best, both of North Carolina; a host of cousins and close friends who were like family; and, two grandpups, Brice and Baxter.
