Elva "Louise" Stewart, 76, of Fairmont, passed away at her home amongst her loved ones Wednesday (Oct. 3, 2012) after a short bout with cancer.
She was born April 7, 1936, daughter of the late James Hickman and Gladys (Clark) Hickman Green.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 40 years, Roy Lee Stewart; her daughter, Brenda Lea Stewart Phares; and two sons, Charles Ervin Stewart and Donald Ray Stewart; as well as her eldest sister, Nancy Helen Looman; and two brothers-in-law, Emary Looman and Neil Owens of Fairmont.
She leaves behind and will be sadly missed by many: one son and daughter-in-law, Randy and Duretta Stewart of Fairmont, who were her primary caregivers during her illness, along with their three sons, Logan Vincent, Randy Stewart II and Roy Stewart; a grandson, Richard "TJ" Phares and great-grandson Zackary Phares; two sisters, Rose Foster of Florida and her two children, Thelma Owens of Fairmont and her daughter Tisha Byers and her two children, Amina and Taj; Thelma's two sons, Jeffrey Kevin Owens and Steve Owens and his family of Ohio; a son-in-law, Richard "Rick" Phares and his companion Betty Wilson; a nephew, Wendell Looman, and niece, Phillis Boice; four granddaughters; and nine other great-grandchildren.
Louise was a wife and homemaker. She studied her religion at home with Pastor Arnold Murray. She worked as a clerk and a day care provider. Her love for children was evident.
She devoted many hours not only to her own children, but also to her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She enjoyed working outside in the yard, traveling, reading, doing crossword puzzles, cooking and baking. She also had a love for country music and liked writing songs and short stories.
She loved spending time with her family and friends. She touched the lives of many with her kindness and wisdom. To those she loved, her door was always opened and her heart full of love. Although many hearts are breaking as we struggle with our loss, we must remember how blessed we are to have had someone so special in our lives, someone who makes saying goodbye so difficult.
Domico Funeral Home, 414 Gaston Ave. in Fairmont, is in charge of arranging Louise's cremation.
