It is with great sadness that the family announce the death of Edna Gale Stewart who passed away suddenly in her home on Sunday September 12th at the age of 75. She was born in Newcastle on April 27, 1946 to Bernice Embree Stewart (Russel) of Nordin and George Perley Stewart of Chatham.

She also leaves behind her dear grandchildren Cameron Russett of Ottawa and Lauren Poirier of Miramichi.
Her death was predeceased by her mother Bernice and her father George, her brothers, Darryl, Wayne, Gary and her sister Karen.
Edna found lifetime friends at the Miramichi Bowlarama where she also worked and was a competitive championship bowler. She also worked at Shoppers Drug Mart in Northumberland Mall for many years. She was a two-time breast cancer survivor and was immensely proud of her children and grandchildren who she loved to the moon and back. Edna loved the arts and was a supporter of local theatre and music, especially her time as a volunteer for Characters Incorporated.
Edna also leaves behind her dear friend Teresa Adams who was instrumental in allowing her to remain independent as her health and mobility declined.
