Her husband, who has been dead a number of years, was Walter Briant Stephenson. In her hometown, just outside of Philadelphia, Mrs. Stephenson was active in many ways and the Women's Hospital in Philadelphia was a philanthropy in which she was especially interested. She was a member of the Unitarian Church.
