Danforth - Nancy Carol Stewart, 70, passed away Sunday, January 12, 2020, at her residence in Danforth. She was born in Springfield, Massachusetts on September 8, 1949. She was born to Arthur E. Stewart of Wytopitlock, Maine, and Josephine Dunia Stewart of Springfield, Massachusetts.
She leaves behind her mother Josephine D. Stewart of Jackson, Michigan, a brother, James Arthur Stewart and his wife Janice of Yarmouth Port, Massachusetts; sisters Christine Ellen Stewart of St. Pete's Beach Florida, Elaine Marie Herbert and husband Jed, of Brooklyn, Michigan, Joan Elizabeth Bircheat of Palm Coast Florida, and a brother John Edmund Stewart and wife Joanne of Harwich Massachusetts.
Nancy moved to Wytopitlock Maine with her family in 1950. Nancy lived at home for her first 4 years. She suffered from severe brain damage from birth. Because of her condition it became impossible for her parents to give her the care she required. Nancy required constant supervision and assistance 24 hours a day. Following that she spent nearly all of hers life in institutions in Maine. She was unable to communicate and relate any of her experiences so we are left with little or no information on what her life was like for the first 35 years. After the fact we have come to know some of those situations were less than ideal.
Everything changed for Nancy when she came to Danforth under the auspices of the Danforth Habilitation Association. At first she lived at the Residential Center and then moved to Sandy Brook Home in 1997 where she has resided ever since. It was at Sandy Brook that Nancy found a place where she was loved and cared for as she needed and deserved. Those who knew her and loved her will miss her greatly. We are confident that by God's grace she is in Heaven with Christ and His people and "He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall no longer be any death; there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain..." (Rev. 21:4)
A memorial service will be conducted 10:30 AM Wednesday, January 15, 2020 at the Calvary Gospel Assembly, 50 Houlton Rd., Danforth, with the Rev. Maurice Gray officiating. A reception will immediately follow the service in the church fellowship hall building. Arrangements in care of Dunn Funeral Home 11 Park St. Houlton, Maine 04730.
