Obituary for Edward James Stewart

Stewart, Edward James was born July 28, 1910 in Royal Oak, Michigan. His family moved west in 1916 and lived in California and New Mexico before returning to Oxford in 1935. He, and his family, have resided in his mother’s family home since returning to the community. He married Gertrude Jane Willobee in 1936 and they have remained happily married for these 72 years.

Edward is a beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather, Great-Great-Grandfather and “Dreamland Train Engineer Extraordinaire”. At 98 years young Edward went home to Heaven on January 3, 2009. He was in the arms of his wife and surrounded by his five children and their families. He passed quietly as his family sang “Sweet Hour of Prayer”, lifting him to the arms of Jesus.

He is forever loved by all who knew him; admired for his quiet strength; and cherished for his sense of humor, adventurous spirit and eternally youthful outlook on life. He has always been a shining example of a truly Christian heart; and will always be a hero to his children. He will be missed beyond measure and Heaven will be blessed by the presence of this Saint (Psalm 116:15).

He is survived by his wife Gertrude; his children & their spouses: Gary Edward Stewart (Darlene), Judy Stewart Morris (John), Mary Stewart Sprague (Aaron J.), Margaret Stewart Johnson, Jayne Marie Stewart: 15 Grandchildren: 25 Great-Grandchildren: and 6 Great-Great-Grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at the First Baptist Church in Lake Orion (235 East Scripps Rd.) on Saturday, February 14, 2009 at 11:00 AM. Memorial donations to the First Baptist Church, Lake Orion, MI or Mercy Hospice (Cranbrook Hospice Care), 281 Enterprise Ct., Bloomfield Hills, MI 48302 appreciated.
Funeral arrangements entrusted to Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors Bossardet Chapel, Oxford, MI.
