Geraldine (Stirling) Stevens, 73, Owned Credit Card Company

Geraldine (Stirling) Stevens, 73, of Haverhill, died on July 30, at Holy Family Hospital at Merrimack Valley, Haverhill.

Born in Louisville, Ky., daughter of the late Alexander R. and Beulah (Simmons) Stirling, she attended Annandale High School in Virginia, graduating with the class of 1962.  She was the owner of CTG Processed Credit Cards.

Stevens was a warm, loving person, determined and independent.  Family first was her priority, she lived to encourage and help those she loved. Her generosity, even as a young child, knew no bounds. She will be missed for her compassion, her quick wit, her open arms and heart.  Always ready to listen with an open mind made her a friend and confidant with no peer.  But most importantly – she was a daughter, sister, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.

She is survived by a daughter, Jennifer Stirling of Derry, N.H.; brother, David Stirling of Jacksonville, Fla.; sister, Diane Stirling of Mooresville, N.C.; grandson, Andrew Stirling and his children, Alexander and Elias and grandson, Alexander Stirling.
