I was so sorry to learn of your mom’s death. She was a wonderful lady. On behalf of my parents and myself, I want to give you our condolences. My father, who died in 2013, lived next door to her when they were growing up. My mother did too, briefly, after they married. Happily, they were able to spend time with Mary Ann numerous times after they moved back here. She and Rita and parents and I went to your uncle Charles’ house one evening and had a lovely visit. And I remember so many things about your mother. Those fantastic chocolate chip cookies she made!! Always a hit at neighborhood & political functions. And she and Rita participated so much in the neighborhood group. Mary Ann was always ready to lend a hand in any project. Even after the all-Latonia group became Ritte’s East, they still came to our Christmas parties, and were the life of the party. We always have a gift auction, and one year Rita and your mom brought an old toilet seat! Those parties and auctions just aren’t the same without them. I admired the closeness of the friendship between your mom and Rita. That’s an unusual thing to find these days. I remember Mary Ann showing me a book that one of your sisters made of Mary Ann’s life. It was fascinating to look at, and she loved it. I’m sorry I was unable to attend her funeral, but on behalf of my father, Charlie, my mother, and me, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
I remember the kind regard Mary Ann had for me and her support. I value her friendship and memory. Thank you.
Our thoughts & prayers go out to the entire Stewart family as you grieve the loss of a wonderful lady. She brought many great memories to our family & was a welcome addition to our lives. May you find peace in knowing that she is with my Mom & Jerry, looking down to protect those she loved… as always.
Patrick, Sandy, & Jared Dreyer
Deepest condolences to all the Stewart family.
I worked with Mary Ann Cathedral Bingos at the Cathedral. We had a lot of fun and got to be friends. Then she joined our Ladies Society and kindly took over the job of Treasurer. I enjoyed her company for many years. She was delight to work and plan with. We all will miss her. She is in my prayers to get a good seat in Heaven, where the Lord can enjoy her now. Bev
I spoke with Mom last night and she and I are both moved by your loss. She was so sad to hear. Aunt Mary Ann was a cool lady. Always so sweet, such a big heart. We’d chat whenever we saw her at the doctor’s building gift shop. Volunteer work helped keep her young at heart and vital. And so did your family!
Aunt Joan (Mom) is in a rehab facility herself right now, so she is truly sad she’ll have to miss the services. I will try and reminisce about Aunt Mary Ann with Uncle Frank at Dad’s facility. I know you know how that process is.
We are all sending prayers and good thoughts your way. Please remember to grab some food and rest when you can and to take care of yourselves.
