April 4, 1970- October 21, 2014
It is with extreme sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Stacey Michelle Stewart who lost her battle with cancer on Tuesday, October 21, 2014. Stacey was at peace and was surrounded by her loved ones at the time of her passing. She was born in Port Alberni, British Columbia but raised in Maidstone, Saskatchewan. Stacey moved around and eventually landed in Powell River where she, Darren and the kids called home for the past 12 years.
Stacey was predeceased by her father Darrell Stewart.
She will forever be missed by the love of her life, Darren Nivens; her sons, Kyle Stewart, Stephen Sparling; daughters, Isabelle Nivens and Chyanna Nivens; mother, Linda Stewart; sisters, Haley (Becket) Sopracolle and their children, Connor and Jenna; sister Debbie (Graham) Stewart Gibbs and their children, Jayden and Cienna. As well, the Nivens Family, her closest friend Kim, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
During her fight Stacey was strong, courageous, outgoing, optimistic and brave never wavering in her love of God. Stacey remained faithful to her beliefs and with this strength she smiled right to the end.
Stacey was loved by many. Her departure leaves a huge hole in the hearts of her family. Stacey had so much love in her to share and she often took people into her home that were down on their luck and struggling. She became a second mother to many and a role model to Angel and Aurian.
Stacey’s beautiful smile and contagious laughter would fill any room that she entered. Stacey was generous, caring and an amazing friend to many.
Stacey loved music, the beauty of nature, hockey, her friends but most importantly her family. Stacey can be quoted in saying ” I’m all about family”
She will be forever in our hearts and always missed. Be at peace our beautiful Stacey…
