Mrs. Lois Ballard Stevens, 61, wife of Larry Stevens and mother of Nicole Stevens Cummings, passed away at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center (VCU) in Richmond, VA on Tuesday, October 25, 2022. A lifelong resident of Cape Charles, she was the daughter of the late Marguerite (Maggie) Ballard and the late Dale Ballard, Sr.
She graduated from Cape Charles High School in 1980 and never met a job she couldn't do. She worked as a dispatcher for Northampton County Sherriff's Department in the mid-90's and early 00's. She was also a former rural paper carrier for The Virginian-Pilot until her health prevented it.
In addition to her loving husband and daughter, she is survived by her brother Dale Ballard, Jr. and wife Dotty, brother Bruce Ballard and wife Claudia. She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and those she considered her children in all but blood.
She had a great love for her animals and is sorely missed by all her fur babies, especially her bulldog Ash. She was a devoted watcher of the Chicago series on TV, an avid reader, enjoyed playing bingo, and being with those she loved.
A graveside service will be conducted Saturday, October 29, 2022, at 2pm, at Cape Charles Cemetery, with Reverend Jeff Conrow officiating. Memorials may be made to SPCA Eastern Shore, Inc., P.O. Box 164, Onley, VA 23418.
The family wishes to express their thanks to Cape Charles Rescue Squad, the staff of Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital and the staff at VCU.
