MAE WINNIFRED STEWART
MAY 5, 1925 – JUNE 6, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Mom, Grandma, and Great-Grandma. Mae was born in Comox, B.C. on May 5, 1925 to Matilda and Herb Muschamp. She was predeceased by her husband, Desmond Joseph Stewart. She is survived by her four children, Monty, Clifford (Paulette), Leona, and Graham (Jan); her grandchildren, Sean, Gary, Cameron, Leanne and Heather; great-grandson, Dexter. Mae spent her early years growing up in Union Bay. She moved to Victoria in her early twenties to work. She came back to Union Bay and married the love of her life. They were married for 60 years. They started a family in Union Bay, then moved into Gold River in 1961. Then later moved to Campbell River. The last couple of years for Mae have been at Cumberland Lodge.
Mae was a kind and caring person. She was known for always having her door open for everyone. She would always have baking on the counter and could whip up a batch of scones in a flash. She was loved by all who knew her and influenced many. She had a strong personality, knew her mind, and was very much involved with her community in many capacities. She will be missed very much by her family and friends.
The Family would like to thank all the wonderful and caring staff and Dr Helmer at Cumberland Lodge who have taken such good care of our Mom. A celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
