Mary Stewart was born in Grants Pass, Oregon. She attended Lincoln Elementary, New Hope Christian and Grants Pass High School. Mary lived in Palm Desert, Ca., for the past 28 years where she and her former husband, Patrick Stewart, raised their three amazing sons, Parker (25), Jeremy (23) and Justin (21). She worked in the real estate industry for many years where she enjoyed networking and helping her clients.
She is survived by her mother, Joy New; her brother, Mark New and his wife Lisa, who was a very dear friend to Mary; her sister Carol and brother-in-law Tracy Carpenter; her sister Susan and brother-in-law Stan Capelli, who was very close with Mary and he was able to be with her and her sons during her passing. Mary's nephew, Jarette Capelli and niece, Shelbey Capelli were with Mary's family and a source of comfort during this time. Mary had many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins who loved her dearly. Mary also had many loved ones in the Stewart family.
Mary loved her sons with all her heart. She took special care to store and keep all of their childhood keepsakes safe. Mary also enjoyed hiking and spending time with her dog Sunflower and her cats Bentley and Nina. She also loved CSI and crime investigative discovery shows. Her sister Carol will miss the countless hours watching and solving the crimes together. Mary, Sue and her mom Joy had a special time together in December and again in February filled with lots of laughs and beautiful memories. Mary truly brightened all our lives with her beauty, kindness and goodness. Mary had a special sweetness about her and was loved so very much. We will miss her dearly, and because of her faith in the Lord, we know she is safe in the arms of Jesus.
We love you Mary.
