Leah Sue Stephens, 69, peacefully passed away on Saturday, October 12th, 2019 in Fort Smith, Arkansas. She was born August 25th, 1950 in Little Rock, Arkansas to Mary E. and Leon Kelley.

She was raised in Fort Smith and had a love-filled childhood. She was the eldest of three sisters, who had all kept close relationships. She loved music and regaled family and friends with the time she was bumped into by Elvis Presley when he was in the Fort Smith Area. She met Delbert Randolph when she was 21 and had a daughter, Kristin L. (Randolph) Collins. She later married Otis Stephens and had a son, Joseph V. Stephens. She and Otis later divorced and she lived and worked independently for the remainder of her life. She was a long term retiree of the State of Arkansas where she was involved with DSH in Crawford, Saline and Sebastian counties over her career. She had many friends and she loved to visit with them. She loved good food, especially sweets, and to shop at thrift stores. Her biggest love was for her grandchildren.

Mrs. Stephens was preceded in death by her parents, Mary and Leon Kelley, her sisters, Jodi Kelley and Leslie Wolfe, and her daughter, Kristin Collins. She is survived by her brother, Bob Mills, of New Castle, Indiana, her son, Joseph V. Stephens, daughter-in-law Amy Stephens and granddaughter Allyssa Stephens, all of Fort Smith, her son-in-law Kenneth Collins, of Fort Smith, and grandsons Abraham Davis, Noah Davis and Gabriel Collins, all of Fort Smith. She is also survived by her newborn great-granddaughter, Juliana Davis.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, November 2nd, at 2 PM at The Bridge Church in Fort Smith, AR.

It was late November2004 when I came to fort smith Arkansas to pick up my bride to be but her mother Leah Stephens has something else in mind for me? She pleaded with me not to take her only daughter back to Georgia with me. I agreed and on November 29th,2004 I married Kristin Davis and for C 16 years we were in bliss until my wife lost her battle with cancer on August 2,2019. May they both Rest In Peace. We will miss you Leah and Kristin.
