Betty Lou Stewart, age 94, passed away on Wednesday February 13, 2019 in Lakewood Colorado surrounded by loving family. From her birth in Kansas City Missouri on August 11, 1924 to her death on Wednesday, she nourished so many people around her with love, kindness, caring, compassion, and a deep faith in the Lord Almighty. She was born into humble beginnings but made rich in spirit through the love of her adoring Mother, Mary Evangeline McGee, and others close to her growing up.
After meeting and falling in love with Charles Ernest Stewart, the couple soon married. Shortly after the Country was in the midst of the Second World War where Charles served honorably in the Pacific Theater. Throughout that tumultuous time Betty provided unwavering love and support back on the home front. After the end of the war the couple moved to Denver Colorado to start a new life and build a family. Although Betty had a working career that was very important to her and that she excelled at, there was nothing more meaningful and essential to her than her family and friends. The love, care, and commitment in her heart was manifested in action in so many ways that positively affected so many people. Everyday, even in the most difficult of times, Betty awoke with a song in her heart, a positive outlook, and a willingness to help family, friends, and on many occasions, complete strangers. Betty truly blessed this world through her many contributions, actions, and deeds. She was a woman of integrity who wanted nothing more than peace and happiness for all God’s creatures.
Left to honor Betty and remember her love are her two children (Mary Lou Coble and Charles Randy Stewart), her three grandchildren (Tami Lee Atkinson, Shannon Marie Coble, and Jami Nicole Coble), her four great grandchildren (Cheyanne Lee Hurn, Taylor Danyelle Atkinson, Payton Mae Kromminga, Devyn Quinn Coble-Unker), her son-in-law (Warren Edward Coble), and many other friends whom Betty touched.
Betty was preceded in death by her Mother (Mary Evangeline McGee) whom she cherished, her Father (Henry Lazelle Wilhelm), and her husband (Charles Ernest Stewart).
Betty will be remembered as a shining light, as a loving mother, and a woman who truly made this world a better place. God Bless her! She will live on in spirit through all those in her life.
