Catherine “Cathy” Margaret Wince Stevens, 66, of Fort Long in Page County, passed away at her home
on February 8, 2023. She was born on March 1, 1956, in Warrenton and was a daughter of the late
Howard “Dooley” Grimsley Wince Sr. and Leah Margaret Wince. Cathy had a joyous spirit and an
infectious smile. All who came into her presence experienced her gentle kindness and laughter. She is
now resting in the arms of her Lord.
Cathy enjoyed a loving marriage of more than 26 years with her husband, William “Bill” Arthur Stevens,
whom she married on Oct. 25, 1996.
She was a graduate of Fauquier High School. She worked mostly in accounting. First at the former
Jefferson Savings and Loan, then she was employed at Fauquier Hospital, both in Warrenton. Most
recently, she worked at Andersen Corporation in Luray, VA.
She enjoyed caring for their little piece of heaven here on earth. Cathy and Bill loved to travel to places
like the Caribbean and Maine. They also enjoyed kayaking and fishing on the South Fork of the
Shenandoah River that flows across the back of their property. She loved seafood, especially lobster.
In addition to her husband, Cathy is survived by three brothers, Clyde Dooley Wince (spouse Glenda),
Larry James Wince (spouse Antoinette), and Howard “Snookie” Grimsley Wince II (spouse Robin);
several nieces and nephews, Tatyana Barrera (spouse Carlos and their children Ariel and
Abram), Constance “Connie” Lanning (children Paige and Michael), Bonnie Wince (children Vincent
Sharikas and Jacob Sharikas), Jessica Wince, and Howard “Bucky” Wince III (spouse Sophie and their
children Howard Wince IV and Oliver); two aunts, Norma Jean Peterson and Nancy Ann Clark; two
daughters, Terri Lee Clark (spouse J.T.) and Tammy Migliaccio (spouse Joe); five grandchildren, Justin
McClure (spouse Christine), Jordan Nallen (spouse Michael), Caitlin Clark, Whitney Johnson (spouse
