Lori Stephens

May 9, 1961 — April 23, 2024

Lori Lynn Stephens, age 62, passed away April 23rd, 2024 in her home, surrounded by family.

Lori was born May 9th, 1961, to Clifford A. Fagg and Doris M. Fagg. She was married March 14, 1981 to George E. Stephens in Paola, KS. They had 3 sons, Todd, Cody, and Ryan, and a daughter, Karlie. Lori was baptized April 17th, 2024.

Lori worked at a bank in Iola from 1979 to 1991, then as a cook at Marmaton Valley schools before she started accounting for the farm. Lori was a homemaker, and a lover of all animals. She made beautiful quilts, crafted for all occasions, and gardened at home in her free time. Lori was an avid Chiefs fan, and loved to play card games and do puzzles with her family. Lori never missed an event for her children and was active as a T-Ball coach, 4-H sponsor, and an honorary member of the FFA. The farm kept her busy during most seasons as she took meals to the field, kept up with book work, and ran errands to help keep things running.

Above all else, Lori loved her friends and family faithfully and she could always be counted on for a hot meal, a warm hug, and a shoulder to lean on. She had a giving heart, loved celebrating those around her, and was proud to know she would be a grandma soon.

Lori was preceded in death by parents, Clifford A. Fagg and Doris M. Fagg; and brother, Jerry Carlson. She is survived by her husband of 43 years, George E. Stephens; children, Todd W. Stephens, Cody A. Stephens, Ryan A. Stephens (Emily), and Karlie N. Stephens of Moran KS; and sister, Lana Kettler (Chris) of Paola, KS.
