Obituary Condolences

Elizabeth "Liz" Stewart, 70, kid at heart, surprisingly slipped away quietly Tuesday, July 8, 2014 - in stark contrast to the way she lived life! Liz was a lifelong fighter who believed in family, God, judicious application of guilt, the power of words, the freedom of education, contribution, friendship, striving, justice, equality and the calling to be useful to others in this life. Liz was a gifted high school chemistry and physics teacher to thousands of MCS kids for 35 yrs. She also worked with her children in the family business, Precision Air Conditioning and Heating, that she and her late husband started in 1973. Liz felt her children were her greatest accomplishment. She didn't cook, clean or pack lunches. She believed in self- reliance but would talk forever about her kids' accomplishments: Lawyer, Master Degreed Teacher, Successful Business Owners, and PhD Psychologist. BUT - her real pride and joy was knowing her 4 children shared a lifelong unbreakable bond of closeness. Liz was very active in Bartlett politics, St. Ann's Catholic Church and various organizations for equality and justice. Liz loved life and miraculously bounced back from the brink dozens of times. That she passed away in her sleep enjoying her best health in recent memory was a fitting punch line. Liz requested no flowers ""since they die"" and would prefer you make a donation to St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Ann's Catholic Church in Bartlett or to St.Agnes/St. Dominic's School. The family thanks Dr. Bobby Kelley, Dr. Jennifer Morrow, Dr. Melvin Goldin, Dr. Mike Smith, Davita Dialysis at Baptist and Margaret Locke. Liz leaves her children, Kathe Stewart (Steve Wilson); Beth Barker (David Barker); Larry Stewart (Michele DeHaven) and Michael Stewart (Laurel Young). Grandchildren: Lance Stewart; Hogin and Emily Barker; Allison, Ashley, Emily and Jordan DeHaven. Also sister, Kathy (Rich Cirincione), brother Thomas Bornemann (Cynthia), brother-in-law, Dougley Stewart (Sharon) and a large extended family. Funeral mass is at St. Ann's Catholic Church in Bartlett at 11 a.m. Saturday, followed by burial in Memorial Park Cemetery. Services entrusted to:
Bartlett Funeral Home
