Edith Irene Stephenson, formerly of Chapman Lake and of Lagro, passed away quietly on Friday, July 10, 2020 at Grace Village Healthcare in Winona Lake. She was 95 years old.

Born on March 28, 1925 in Huntington, Edith was the daughter of the late Guy Vernon and Stella May (Keister) Kester. She attended school in Largo, graduating from Lagro High School with the class of 1943. On April 25, 1948, Edith was married to the late Charles Stephenson. Together the two shared nearly sixty years before his passing in 2007.

Edith is remembered for her gregarious personality, her wit and her kindness. She was a longtime member of Largo Presbyterian Church where she was highly active; she was the first female elder in the Wabash Valley Synod. She was also a former member of the Order of the Eastern Star, an avid gardener and a skilled baker of pies. Professionally, Edith co-owned and operated Stephenson Grocery and General Store with her husband; they retired in 1985 to Warsaw’s Chapman Lake.

In addition to her husband, Charles, those who preceded Edith in passing include a son-in-law, Charles McKenzie; daughter-in-law, Doris Stephenson; two sisters: Mildred Meredith and Ruby Gilmer; three brothers: Arthur Kester, E. Louis Kester and Fred Kester and their parents. Those who survive include daughter: Sally McKenzie of Carmel; son, David Stephenson of Fort Wayne and four grandchildren: Scott Stephenson of Elkhart, Mark (Rachel) McKenzie of Carmel, Jason (Sharon) McKenzie of Fortville and Chad (Lorna) McKenzie of London, UK. Also surviving are great-grandchildren: Gavin, Meredith, Theodore, Alexander and Andrew.

Edith’s care and arrangements have been entrusted to Titus Funeral Home, 2000 East Sheridan Street, Warsaw. Burial will take place privately in Lagro Cemetery. Condolences may be left for the family at
