Shutting off gas stove/oven

So I shut the gas valve off to my Gas stove/oven behind it and blew the pilot lights on the stove out.

Does this mean the gas to both the oven and stove are off? Also, was it ok to blow the pilot lights on the stove out?

Also, i dont know if the pilot light in the oven is on, would that just go out or do i need to blow that out to?

Welcome. It sounds like you have a free standing range (oven with cooking burners above).

Once you shut off the gas behind the range, there should be no need to kill any pilots, they will go out on their own.
Please be specific as to what you are trying to do, working on gas can be dangerous.

When it comes time to light the pilots, call the gas company if you have any doubts.
Around here the gas company will light the pilots for free and test all your gas appliances for any leaks and carbon monoxide.
