Mary Stewart
September 11, 1923
November 4, 2017
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Mary Stewart, beloved wife of the late Edwin Stewart, at Wingham & District Hospital on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at the young age of 94. Mary was born in Beverly Township on September 11, 1923 to the late Sadie (Coburn) and John (Jack) Stewart. Mary taught us the importance and value of investing in one’s family more than anything else and leaves to mourn her sons Doug (Elaine) Stewart of Cambridge & David (Linda) Stewart of Ripley. Mary was a loving mom to the nieces she raised from infancy after their mom passed at a very young age, Ann (John) Scheurwater of Teeswater and Sheila (Bill) Collins of Kincardine. Mary will also be greatly missed by her sister Helen Smith of Richmond Hill, whose mother died at childbirth, and was also raised by a very young Mary! Mary knew all too well how important it was to step in and help as she was also left without a mom early on. She was very close to and will be greatly missed by her son-in-law Ted Clark of Flamborough, and her daughter-in-law Faye Stewart of Brantford. Also survived by 18 grandchildren & 25 great grandchildren, who will greatly miss her puddings and ginger snaps! Mary was predeceased by daughter Marilyn Clark, son Murray Stewart, great granddaughter Pania Hussey, brothers Robert & Neil Stewart, brother-in-law Doug Smith and niece Maggie Smith. Many thanks to Dr. Moores and his staff at the Wingham & District Hospital; to Nancy & her amazing staff at Nine Mile Villa, for making Mary feel so at home and well cared for; and to Lorne & Dionne, Lucknow’s pharmacists extraordinaire! Mary spent her life caring and cooking and welcoming so many into her home and loved sharing her gift of music with all who would listen. She touched the hearts & souls of those who knew her, strangers and friends alike, and she lived her life to the fullest, never venturing far out of her own backyard. Rare & genuine, inspiring & incredibly generous, Mary changed the world around her just by being the amazing woman that she was!
