Mrs. Chas. Stewart is Buried Today
Died Early Sunday Morning, Services at Presbyterian Church

Mrs. Cecil Stewart, wife of Charles R. Stewart, died Sunday morning at 5 o'clock at the family home, 508 south Seventeenth Street, of double pneumonia.

Funeral services were held this afternoon at 2:30 at the Presbyterian church, conducted by the pastor the Rev. H. M. Thomas. Burial followed at Oakwood.

Her age was 26 years.

Before her marriage to Mr. Stewart she was Mrs. Cecil Jackson. Her marriage to Mr. Stewart occurred in September, 1918.

She is survived by her husband, Charles R. Stewart, and one son Ray Jackson, by her former marriage. She is survived by one child, Charles Edwin Stewart, by her second marriage. Four step-children survive Mrs. Stewart as follows: Wendell, Carmen, Josephine and Clara Stewart.
Mrs. Stewart is survived by her father Frank Bruce of North Fourth Street, one sister, Mrs. Claud Ward, one step-sister, Mr. J. W. Waite and four half-sisters, Ferne, Wade, Nina and Edna Bruce.

Mrs. Stewart was a most excellent Christian woman, and deeply devoted to the church and her home. Comment has often been made because of her love and care not only for her own, but her step-children, all of whom she treated with the tenderness of a mother. A well balanced character, she performed the duties of wife, mother and member of society with fidelity, neglecting nothing that lay in her power to perform for the comfort and happiness of those dependent on her. Mrs. Stewart was of a sweet and sunny disposition, cheerful, helpful and efficient, and she lived a life that will prove an inspiration to her loved ones and which will always be to them a source of sweet memories.
