Evard Stevens

Evard David Stevens, 85, of Wallace, passed away on Tuesday (July 2, 2013) at Fairmont General Hospital.

He was born March 25, 1928, in Marion County, a son of the late Walter Thomas Stevens and Ollie Blanche Myers Stevens.

He is survived by his wife, Lillian Kathleen Villers Stevens, with whom he was married to for 64 years; five children, Walter Thomas Stevens and wife Nova Dale of Michigan, James Stevens and wife Brenda Sue of Oakdale, Catherine Walls and husband William of Wyatt, David Stevens and wife Rebecca of Margarette, and Carol “Susie” McCoy of Margarette; 18 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren; one sister, Opal McCourt of Kent, Ohio; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Mr. Stevens was preceded in death by four brothers, Alfred Stevens, Clarence Stevens, James Stevens and Ray Stevens; and one sister, Hazel Wells.

Mr. Stevens worked at Consolidated Coal Co. No. 20 Whetstone Portal and retired as a member of UMWA 4060 after 38 years of service. He worked on cars and enjoyed sitting on the porch and visiting with family and friends. He was fondly known as “coal digger.”

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
