Emily G. Stewart

STEWART, Emily G.

May 8, 2011 – September 30, 2011

We are thankful to our Lord and Savior for Emily and the richness she brought to our lives. Her faithful prayers, her courage, wisdom and wit, and above all her deep love for the Lord Jesus, were all priceless gifts she gave us throughout our lives. She is dearly loved and will be greatly missed, but we are comforted in the knowledge that she is now safe at home, where she longed to be. “You can have the world but give me Jesus” was a favorite and loved line in her later years.

Emily was an amazing woman who loved and served others all her life until she was too weak to do any more, but she knew and we know: that the only thing that really mattered above all else, was that she belonged to Jesus. Was a comfort! What a joy!

This is a verse from a song that Em had come to love in her later years:

In the morning when I rise,

In the morning when I rise,

In the morning when I rise,

Give me Jesus.

Give me Jesus.

Give me Jesus.

You can have all this world but give me Jesus.

Emily was predeceased by her six siblings: Agenora Sibbit, Lyman Stewart, Luke Stewart, Bessie Smith, Doug Stewart and Ross Stewart. She leaves behind two loving sisters-in-law and a host of nieces and nephews.

Donations in her name, and by Em’s request, can be made to Overseas Missionary Fellowship or to The Gideons. An information gathering of friends and family will take place later.
