It is with heart felt sadness we announce the passing of Elizabeth Ann Stewart, Mom, Grandmother and Greatmother on July 25, 2013 at the age of 92. In the presence of her adored and adoring sons Bob and Jim Stewart, she fell into a final sleep. Elizabeth Ann, Beth to her friends, was born January 7, 1921 in Saskatoon, Sask. She began her education riding her horse from the family farm to a rural school and eventually graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with her CGA. She met the love of her life, Robert Bruce Stewart in Trail, BC where they were both working for Cominco. They married in 1943. They have celebrated 60 wonderful years together. From the beginning, their marriage was truly a partnership, based on both love and respect. From Trail, they moved to Powell River, Burnaby and eventually to Tsawwassen. During this time, she was very involved in social and charitable organizations. She belonged to Beach Grove Golf Club and in 1968 was Ladies captain. But, with retirement came new opportunities. They spent their winter in Borrego Springs, C.A. They built a beautiful home on Pender Island and it was there that Beth and her beloved "R.B." continued their passion for gardening, sharing a tractor ride and where together, they maintained a pristine home. They were always dressed impeccably regardless if guests were arriving or not. It was very evident of the joy they shared with each other and the many family memories will not be forgotten. In 2001 they moved back to Tsawwassen where R.B. passed away in 2003. Beth began her life's next chapter at the Waterford where she delighted in the company of many new friends, enjoyed the closeness of family and was so very appreciative of the dedicated staff that brought such quality to her life.
The Guest Book is expired.
Elizabeth Ann Stewart leaves behind her devoted sons Robert and Jim, her dedicated daughter-in-law Judy, her adored granddaughters Sandi, Lisa and Shaun, her wonderful grandsons Bobby, Brett, Michael and Jamie, as well as 12 loving great-grandchildren.
The family would like to thank Dr. Lerner and the staff at Delta Hospital for their care and kindness to Mom and to the family.
A Celebration of Life for Beth will take place on Thursday, August 15, 2013 at 1:00 pm at Beach Grove Golf Club, 5946 12th Avenue, Tsawwassen, BC.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Delta Hospital, www.deltahospital.com, would be appreciated.
