Nina Stevens Black died at her home in White Salmon on Friday, Nov. 7, 2003.
She was born May 18, 1913, in Mt. Carmel, Utah, to Hyrum Wallace Stevens and Mabel Spencer Stevens, the middle child in a family of 11. She had six brothers and four sisters.
She married Claude Black on April 15, 1932, in the LDS St. George Temple.
Mrs. Black was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served valiantly in any assignment that she was given. She loved to teach the children in Primary and always had a special spot in her heart for them and an abiding concern for their welfare. There are still many who are grown with children and grandchildren of their own who still care her "Mom."
She loved to garden and always had beautiful flowers around her home. Another of her interests was creating wonderful quilts on her old Singer treadle sewing machine, which she was still doing in her 90th year. She made quilts for all her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren as they came along. She loved the outdoors and spent many days with family and friends camping at her favorite camping spot at the old sheep camp on the Lewis River.
Mrs. Black is survived by three sons Dennis, Buffalo Center, Iowa, Roger, Trout Lake, and Boyce, White Salmon; two daughters Nora Kyte and Darlisa Black, both of White Salmon; brother Leo Stevens, Utah, 17 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren, who brought much joy and happiness to her throughout her life.
A funeral service for Mrs. Black was held on Wednesday, Nov. 12, 2003, at 11 a.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in White Salmon, with interment following at the White Salmon Cemetery.
