Obituary of Alice Stewart
Alice Gordon Stewart, 82 of Granby, MA passed away after a quick and unexpected decline of health. Alice was born in New York City on March 5th, 1938 to Miriam T. Ellison and Thurlow M. Gordon. She married Fred Stewart, III on November 7, 1956. She faithfully and lovingly followed Fred around the country as his service and work required, eventually retiring in Granby to be near family.
In Granby Alice found an even larger family that she ever expected to have. She volunteered her time and money to many groups and causes helping those not as fortunate in life. Alice’s legacy will live on in Granby through her gifts to Friends of the Library. The other great love in Alice’s life was gardening where she grew an incredible diversity of trees, flowers, and plants of all kinds.
She is survived by her sons Robert and John, her four grandchildren, Sunny, Lavender, Nichole and Jenna, as well as her four great grandsons Christopher, Connor, Owen and Preston. She is also survived by her brother, Bob Gordon, and extra grandchildren Kyle, Garrett, Libby, JJ, Evan, Connor W, and Autumn.
