The Carnegie (OK) Herald, Wed., Dec. 19, 1928
Mrs. Dunlap's Mother Dies In Tulsa Wednesday, Dec. 12
After a brief illness of flu and pneumonia Mrs. D.E. Stewart passed quietly away last Wednesday night at the home of her son, Edgar Stewart of Tulsa, Okla.
Elvira Weathers was born in Leavenworth, Indiana, Feb. 15, 1841, and died Dec. 12, 1928, at the age of 87 years, 9 months and 27 days. She was married at Marengo, Ind., April 14, 1864, to David H. Stewart. To this union were born five children, four of whom are living: Edgar Stewart of Tulsa, Okla., Mrs. Thomas McCune of San Diego, Calif., Ernest Stewart of Kalama, Wash., and Mrs. W.L. Dunlap of Carnegie, Okla. Soon after they were married Mr. and Mrs. Stewart went to Platte county, Missouri. Later they moved near Leavenworth, Kansas, where they lived until 1903, when they settled on the farm southwest of Carnegie. There they resided until failing health necessitated their return to Leavenworth, Kansas, where Mr. Stewart preceded his wife to the great beyond in March 1916. Since then Mrs. Stewart has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. W.L. Dunlap, of Carnegie and her son Edgar Stewart of Tulsa.
Funeral services were conducted at Tulsa and also at Leavenworth, Kansas, where interment was made beside her husband in Mt. Muncie cemetery Dec. 14.
Grandma Stewart as she was known by her friends whom she numbered by her acquaintances was a devoted Christian, having united with the Christian church at the age of 25, and was a faithful member of the Christian church of Carnegie at the time of her death.
She had no lodge affiliations, esteeming rather the high ideals of the Christian religion as sufficient guidance, and exemplifying them in her daily life--a faithful and beloved wife and mother a cherished friend.
Grandma Stewart will be lovingly remembered by those who knew her best as a cheerful, kind, loving woman, whose place in their hearts no one else can quite fill. Regrets for her homegoing are softened by the knowledge that she had lived a good life so long four score and seven years--and was ready for the summons.
Noble soul has slipped away from the tribulations of this life into the realms beyond, where life is perfect and joy is complete.
