Stephens graduated from Roff in 1955. She played both basketball and softball before a knee injury forced her to miss her senior season. Stephens has been a loyal fan at all Roff sporting events since her playing days ended, which spans 58-plus years. While in attendance at Roff athletic events, Stephens has been able to watch younger siblings, children and great grandchildren play. The well-known Roff resident can now be seen at Roff games holding great grandchildren.
