Frances Lucille Stewart, 95 year-old mother and grandmother, passed away Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018.
She was the second to the oldest of a family of eleven children. She married David Stewart in 1942 and he preceded her in death on Oct. 28, 2011.
She is survived by her oldest brother, Don Miller, who is 99 years old; by her four children: Brenda (Phil) Miller, Cheryl Teague, both of Urbana; Nancy (Tim) Eviston, Wabash; David (Zenda) Stewart, Newark, Ohio; five grandchildren: Angela Ogino, Urbana; Kim (Shawn) Hayslett, Lagro; Troy Teague, Lagro, Penny Drumm and Wendy Dolloff, Newark, Ohio; 15 great-grandchildren; and one great-great grandchild.
She was proceeded in death by her husband, one grandson, one great-granddaughter, five sisters and four brothers.
Her deepest love was her family and the Lagro United Methodist Church, of which she was the oldest church member, and her Eastern Star family. She loved doing for others and will always be remembered for her precious “Thank you” cards as she was so thankful for everything her family and friends did for her.
She was a tough gal as she continued to live alone on the family farm in Lagro and then moved into her current home in Wabash one year ago, continuing to live alone until her illness on Jan. 30, 2018.
Funeral services are pending and have been entrusted to McDonald Funeral Home, 231 Falls Avenue, Wabash.
In lieu of flowers, it was Frances’ wish to donate to the Lagro United Methodist Church.
