Obituary for Dorothy Ann Stevens

Dorothy Ann Stevens (Davis) passed away on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 after a long and heroic battle with Alzheimer’s. She was born in Livermore, Kentucky on June 28, 1942 to John and Flora (Scalf) Davis. Dorothy graduated from Livermore High School in 1960 and shortly after moved to Michigan. In 1964 Dorothy graduated from Davenport Business School with a secretarial degree and joined the Treasury Department State of Michigan. She worked her way up to a top level executive secretary position in the Bureau of Investor.
From there Dorothy went to work in the Municipal Employee’s Retirement System working with their investment manager and investing the short term reserves of the fund. There she became the Executive Director of the fund and guided the legislation to remove the fund from under state government and become an independent entity.
She married Barry Stevens on March 27, 1979 and together they made an amazing team enjoying each other’s company for the next 41 years. Dorothy and Barry retired on October 1, 1997 and spent the last 22 years enjoying life. She spent summers in Northern Michigan at McCormick Lake and winters at the “Redneck Riviera” of Fairhope, Alabama.
Fortunate to retire early Dorothy affectionately called the “Boss” by her husband was a die-hard country western fan and passed her beautiful singing voice to both of her children. She traveled with family and friends; made exquisite quilts; was a superb cook with her specialties being deviled eggs, southern green beans and banana bread. Parties with friends and family were another favorite.
She is survived by her husband, Barry; daughter, Angela (Larry) Schmalbach; son, Gregory (Sharon) Metzgar; 11 grandchildren: Kristyn, Jessica, Zachary, Madelyn, Selena, Gabriella, Davanee, Alyssa, Sadie, Gracie, and Allyana; 3 great grandchildren: Hayden, Payton, and Jack; sisters: Carol Smith, Jewell Boyken, Donna Brown, and Linda Coffman. She was preceded in death by her parents, and brother, Johnny (Bub) Davis.
