Theresa Stevens

Theresa was preceded in death by her parents, Jesse and Clarice Jones, four sisters Francis Cusic, Mary Jo Mosier, Ateka Jones and Sonja Anderson and two brothers, Luther Jones and Wendell Jones.

Theresa worked for the Chattanooga Times Free Press for 17 years doing page markup, pagination, and food services. She then moved to Cumming, Georgia where she began working as a Forsyth County Tax Assessor for the next 11 years before retiring in 2012.

Theresa spent her life devoted to serving Jesus Christ. She lived her life on Earth with the core purpose of growing the kingdom of God first by sharing her personal testimony then through service at church. She led both women’s and children’s Bible studies at Freedom Tabernacle, Berean Baptist Church, and Daves Creek Baptist Church. Through the latter part of her years, Theresa created a virtual ministry where she wrote daily personalized devotionals to neighbors, family, and friends.

She is survived by her loving sister Glenda Clayton of Chattanooga, Tennessee, her daughter Sandy Mauldin and son-in-law Terry Mauldin of Cumming, and sons Dean Brooks of Ringgold, Gene Brooks and daughter-in-law Lisa Brooks of Section, Alabama, and Marshall Stevens and daughter-in-law Jennifer Stevens of Sylvania, Alabama.
