Raymond Stephenson, on the morning of March 8, 2019, Dad passed away at home and was reunited with Mom in Heaven, after living a fulfilling 89 years. Ray was born Jan. 25, 1930, to Raymond and Beulah Stephenson in Murray, Iowa. He had two older sisters, Lucille and Christine.
At 19 he pursued a career in banking, beginning in the proof department. Forty-six years later, he retired as President and CEO of Citizens Bank in Corvallis, Oregon. On June 10, 1953, he married the love of his life, Genevieve. They spent many years in Port Angeles, Washington and Corvallis, before relocating to Libby to be close to family. They formed many new and rewarding friendships. Their friends on McMillan Mountain Road and at Libby Christian Church will be forever remembered.
Ray was preceded in death by his wife Genny in 2014.
He is survived by three children, Rod (Sue) Stephenson, Larry (Diana) Stephenson and Tammie (Dale) Sabine; seven grandchildren, and 14 great-grandchildren.
Please remember him by donations to the Libby Christian Church Food Bank, Vina Moses in Corvallis, or the Benton County Foundation in Corvallis. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
