Ann Stovall Stevens

Ann Marshall Stovall Stevens passed away peacefully in her home on Wednesday, October 12, 2022. 

Ann, born on August 31, 1928 in Savannah, Georgia was married to Henry Dana Stevens, III for sixty-six years. She was blessed with and survived by their two children, Henry Dana Stevens IV (Mary Lee) of Savannah, and Cabell Stevens Cummins (Patrick) of Charlotte, NC.; four grandchildren, Dana Coates Stevens (Courtland), Scott Alexander Stevens (Lea), Robert Wilson Cummins (Maya), and Andrew Joseph Cummins; seven great grandchildren; and her dear cousins, nephews, niece, and friends. 

In first grade, Ann attended a French speaking Catholic school in Paris, France where she lived with her parents, the late Anna Cabell Marshall Stovall and Joseph Ganahl Stovall. As a child, Ann attended the Pape School in Savannah and the Shipley School in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. Ann attended Chevy Chase Junior College and the University of Georgia where she majored in Art History. While at Georgia, Ann was a member of Phi Mu Sorority, which at the time was housed in her uncle’s former home on Milledge Avenue.

Ann was a past member of Christ Church Episcopal where she served on the Flower Altar Guild, the Outreach Committee, Savannah Tour of Homes and Gardens, and taught Sunday School. After leaving Christ Church, Ann joined and was a supporter of Christ Church Anglican. Ann served as Savannah Town Committee Chairman of The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Georgia and was a member of The Married Woman’s Card Club, The Junior League of Savannah, and the Trustees Garden Club where she served as an artistic flower show judge for the Garden Club of America.

Ann enjoyed playing golf, and entertaining. She loved her family, gardening, painting her religious icons and watercolors, flower arranging, needlepoint, travel, reading and shopping.
