Mrs. Sarah Stevens Aged 100 Passes In San Francisco
With life’s span exceeding the century mark, by half a year, Mrs. Sarah W. Stevens, beloved wife of the late Ephraim A. Stevens, passed peacefully away at her San Francisco home Tuesday. In that long and interesting life, Mrs. Stevens, born on the Atlantic seaboard, came to the Pacific coast in her early life, and had made her home in California since.
For many years she resided in San Rafael, where her son, the late Rev. Clarence H. Stevens, was pastor of the Congregational Church here. The family made their home on Fifth Street, and many of the residents of this city will recall their pleasant association in church and civic work with the Stevens family. When Rev. Stevens was called to the church at Redwood City, the mother moved to San Francisco. She passed away at the home of her son, Everett A. Stevens, 3584 California Street, after a brief illness. She lived 100 years, 6 months and 16 days.
Mrs. Stevens was born in Connecticut in 1835 during the administration of Andrew Jackson. Her surviving son in 74 years of age.
Mrs. Stevens was a member of the Denver Chapter, Order of Eastern Star, and a most devout member of the Congregational Church.
Funeral services were held this afternoon in San Francisco at 2 o’clock from the Gray mortuary at Divisadero and Post Streets.
