An obituary in Friday's editions of The Washington Post on Ann Stevens, the wife of Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), gave a wrong address to which memorial contributions may be sent. The family suggested that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the Ann Stevens Memorial Fund, Box 879, Anchorage, Alaska, 99510.
Ann Stevens, 49, who was killed with four other persons in an airplane crash at Anchorage, Alaska, Monday, was active in the Senate Wives Red Cross group in Washington and in the League of Women Voters.
Her husband, Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) was injured in the crash. His Washington office said he was due to be discharged from a hospital in Anchorage Friday.
Sen. Stevens and his wife had lived in Washington since 1968, when he was appointed to fill the unexpired term of Sen. E. L. Bartlett. Mrs. Stevens had run a flower store here called Patio Gardens. More recently, she had been a founder of a firm that buys, renovates and sells houses. For some years after the family moved to Washington, she wrote a monthly column for Alaskan newspapers.
Mrs. Stevens was born in Denver and graduated from Reed College in Portland, Ore. She first came to Washington about 1950 to work for the State Department. She met Ted Stevens, an attorney in the Interior Department at that time, and they were married in 1952. They moved to Alaska the same year.
In addition to her husband, of the homes in Anchorage and Washington, survivors include five children, Susan, of Kenal, Alaska, Beth, of Anchorage, Walter, a student at New Mexico State University, Ted Jr., a student at San Diego Mesa College, and Ben, a student at Old Dominion College in Norfolk, Va., and her parents, Dr. and Mrs. Ben Cherrington, of Denver.
The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the Ann Stevens Memorial Fund, Box 789, Anchorage, 99510.
