Wilburn Stevenson left his earthly home to be with his heavenly Father, family and friends on December 23, 2013. His loving and devoted wife, Doris and loving family was with him as he made this blessed transition. Wilburn Stevenson was born August 7, 1927, in Broken Bow, to W.T. "Preacher" Stevenson and Pernia Holmes Stevenson. He attended Broken Bow Schools, entering the Armed Services October, 1945, and proudly serving in Belgium, France, and Germany. He was honorably discharged March, 1947. He met the love of his life, Doris Newman, in June, 1947, and they were united in marriage July 31, 1948, in DeQueen, AR. Wilburn and Doris have enjoyed sixty-five wonderful years together. Wilburn was blessed with a unique talent of being a painter with an artist?s touch. He was self-employed and worked until health issues forced him to leave his profession of sixty years. He mentored and taught his profession to several young people, taking great pride in their accomplishments and skills. Wilburn was a Christian. He and his brother, Thomas "Son" were baptized together by Brother Argyle Hughes, First Baptist Church pastor, on March 5, 1962. He was a member of Lukfata Baptist Church. Wilburn was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying the mountains, woods, and streams. He especially looked forward to deer season when family and friends would gather at deer camp. During his younger days, he enjoyed "coon hunting" with his sons and the neighborhood boys, Pratt, Caplinger, and Haltom boys, along with his faithful dogs, Cindy and Lady. He also enjoyed taking care of his cows and working on his place. Wilburn was a man of integrity where his word was his bond. We are reminded of him in this quote, "Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never the same."
