Stevens Funeral Details Released

Annie Feidt, APRN – Anchorage

The funeral service honoring former Senator Ted Stevens is scheduled for Wednesday, August 18 at 2:00 p.m. His family released the details today, calling them preliminary. His funeral will take place at the Anchorage Baptist Temple, where Stevens attended Sunday Service on August 1, just eight days before he was killed in a plane crash near Dillingham. At that service, Stevens stood on stage with Pastor Jerry Prevo.  Stevens talked to the congregation about what he had been doing since leaving the Senate in 2008.

Senator Stevens will also be lying in repose at All Saints Episcopal Church in downtown Anchorage. The family is inviting the public to pay their respects between 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.  In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be made to the North to The Future Foundation, which was established to honor Stevens’ career.
