PACIFIC GROVE - Dorothy Stewart, born Dorothy Norma Vincent in Salt Lake City, Utah passed away peacefully and of natural causes on August 25, 2011. She was 101. She moved to Pacific Grove in 1955 with her son, Gary and husband, E.J. Stewart; a professor of mathematics who taught at the Naval Postgraduate School from 1955 to 1985. E.J. passed away on Veterans Day, 1996 from complications of Alzheimer's. Dorothy unbelievably lived on her own until the age of 101 this year, suffering a stroke in March. She resided in assisted care until her death. Dorothy was survived by her son Gary, of Pacific Grove; four grandchildren, Lucia Stewart of Bozeman, MT, Megan and Kelsey Stewart of Pacific Grove, Mitchell Stewart of Meadow Valley, CA, and daughter-in-law, Nancy also of Meadow Valley. She also had a great-granddaughter, Taylor, of Pacific Grove.
Dorothy was an active bowler until the age of 96, bowling with the Staff Wives Club of the Naval Postgraduate School. Dorothy was a regular volunteer at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula for 26 years. In early life she attended East High in Salt Lake City, going on to graduate from the University of Utah where she was a member of the Adelphean Society Alpha Delta Pi. During her time at the "U" she met her future husband, E.J. who, soon after their marriage, joined the armed services and became an active Army lieutenant during WWII. During the war, Dorothy volunteered many years for the American Red Cross in New York City.
Dorothy was a dear wife, loving mother, and grandmother during her lifetime. Dorothy was a great mom and friend and was loved by all who knew her. She was known as a "true" human being with her positive, bright, chipper attitude and outlook on life. She will be missed dearly.
At Dorothy's request, no services or memorial will be held.
