In memory of
Mary Frances McCawley Stewart
STEWART, Mary Frances McCawley We, the Children of Mary Frances McCawley Stewart are sad to report that Mom passed away on September 14, 2019 after a short illness. Mom was awake and alert until the last few days of her life and was at peace with what was happening. Characteristically, she was more concerned about us than herself. Mom was born in Jefferson City, Missouri on December 20, 1925 to L.L. McCawley and Nona Dick McCawley. She had a beloved older sister, Robert Ann McCawley Rhodes, who proceeded her in death in 2015. In 1948 she married Dale Neville Stewart in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. They had four children, Mac, Pat Bridget and Ann whom they worked hard to put them all through college and 5 post graduate degrees. They were married for 66 years until Dad passed away in 2015. Their beloved grandson, Jack Stewart, also proceeded them in death in 2014. Mom had friendships that lasted lifetimes and she made new friends with joy. She was generous with her friends and family -- both near and far. Mom and Dad shared their successes with others gladly and without hesitation. Through example, Mom taught us to be empathetic, and open and inclusive in thought and action. She was a wise counselor to others, and her children in particular. Mary Frances McCawley Stewart, wife of Dale Stewart; Mother of Mac, Pat, Bridget and Ann; Mother in Law of Ann Gatewood Stewart, Marion Merritt and Patricia Police Stewart; Grandmother of Colin, Kevin, Jack and Justin; and Great-Grandmother of Amelia Frances Stewart, we, your children, are profoundly grateful that you were our Mom. You will be with us every day for the rest of our lives. A memorial gathering will be held on October 12th from 3-5pm at the Johnson County Chapel and Memorial Gardens. The Family requests that in lieu of flowers that donations be made to the charity of your choice in Mary's name. Thank you Fond memories and condolences for the family may be left at www.Johnsoncountychapel.com
