In Loving Memory Of
Alma Stewart
1928 ~ 2023

ALMA STEWART

December 5, 1928 – December 22, 2023

95 years old never looked better. Elmer (Alma) had a great extended birthday weekend with many of her favorite things: family, good food and drink, sleep overs at Madison, nice outfits, drives to the Pt. du Chene wharf and cottage, card games, puzzling, laughter. Within a week things changed. The batteries in our energizer bunny slowly gave out. Her parts started to fail. Yet her humor remained. Ever vigilant in the pursuit of fun, Elmer made jokes as best she could to entertain those in the CCU in The Moncton Hospital and those in general surgery, all of whom were wonderful in their care of her. Then, with two of her grandchildren standing guard, late at night on December 22, 2023 Elmer went on to join the only man she ever found worthy, Jack Stewart, who never failed to remind “ Your mother is the light of my life”. Our family is ever grateful for all those at Camden Park Terrace, staff and friends alike, who over the last seven years assisted, entertained, kept company, cared for Elmer and made her laugh. Thank you. In accordance with her instructions , there will be no ceremony for Elmer at this time: that will wait for a fair summer day.

    My deepest condolences to you all. I have fond memories of Aunt Alma mostly from my years prior to moving to Ontario. She was a joy to be around. I remember sitting with her when she taught me needlepoint. She made it fun.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  6. It was with sadness that I learned of IODE NB member Alma’s passing. She was an active, dedicated member for nearly 60 years. On behalf of IODE Atlantic Charter Chapter’s officers and members, I post this condolence. – Lynda Duplissea

  7. My thoughts are with Alma’s family during this difficult time. I will miss Alma at Camden Park Terrace. I always made a point to stop and talk with her. She made me laugh and I will miss seeing her around.

  8. Jamie, Debbie and extended Families:
    What a wonderful obituary on the life of a wonderful lady….Alma.
    We miss her so very much here at Camden Terrace and People’s Park Tower. We miss her cherry presence in the Dining Room, her wonderful sense of humor, being able to passing on a challenging jigsawpuzzle to her…..it is just “not the same” without her. I, personally, miss her relating to me stories about her beloved “Jack” whom our family remembers very, very well. (As a child, I lived on Bonaccord Street, right next to Dr. Stewarts’ office. In fact my Dad bought the first car we ever owned from Dr. Stewart….a little mini Morris), Alma would often relate to me how she and her husband would take trips to Florida, etc. and she would describe in quite detailed fashion many happy memories. She was truly amazing. I will never forget her. It was a privilege to call her”friend”.
    Please accept my most sincere sympathy. I trust that the wonderful memories you have made together over the years will serve as a source of comfort and inspiration in this difficult time.

  9. To the family of Alma Stewart,
    I got to know Alma at Bingo and we would always have a good laugh as to who was going to win. We would always have a good laugh when we didn’t
    win because the caller did not call the number we wanted. We who sat with Alma at Bingo will miss her very much. She was a good sport at Bingo.

  10. Time waits for no one — one day at a time! Alma was a gracious person, always laughing, and we would sit in her sun porch on Westshore and reminisce about our sailing experiences. Whenever I go for a walk,even now, or drive by….I look at the place…cannot help myself. A glass of wine on a nice summer day…those are very fond memories. Alma will always be a “role model”! Every time I go walk the beach, I will keep Alma in my thoughts. As stated above….time waits for no one…and I, Margaret Hachey, neighbour during summer months, will always remember Alma as a “special” lady.
    Thinking of all of you at this time. Alma will be looking over you while you are on the water sailing and enjoying the sun!

  11. It was a pleasure having Alma as a neighbor. Always quick to engage in a conversation or offer advice. She will be missed. Our condolences to your family.

  12. Bob and I have such wonderful memories of Alma, being our neighbour in Pointe du Chene. She was a joy and ever entertaining. Bob‘s first encounter with Alma was when he was trimming the lilac bushes which were on the property line between our two cottages. Alma came out to tell him in no uncertain terms that he was trimming them at the wrong time of the year and so our friendship started. Jack was alive then, and we so enjoyed the company of both of them. Our deepest condolences to her family.

  13. My condolences to John, Joann, Jamie and family.
    Just heard the news. Mom & Alma were such great friends through bridge, IODE, summers at Pte. due Chene as well as Boxing Day celebrations. I distinctly remember the day when I picked up Alma to have lunch here with Mom and Mae. I remember they had a lot of laughs and were not the least bit shy in solving all the world’s problems!
    So very sorry for your loss.

  14. An elegant and gracious Lady is how I remember my friends’ mother. I remember her sense of humor and her hospitality whenever I visited.
    And then in later years as one of my mother’s dearest friends. She was an important part of Mom’s extra-curricular activities, and charities as well as social occasions.
    I will remember her with great fondness.
    My deepest sympathies to her Family

  15. John, Joann, Jamie and family
    So very sorry to hear of your moms passing. She was amazing. Have many fond memories of time spent with both your Mom and Dad. Sending our heartfelt condolences.
    Claire and Bill

  16. I was saddened to read of your Mom’s death in the newspaper. I have so many fond memories of volunteering at the Moncton Hospital with her, where we had so much fun together.

  17. RIP Alma, you were wonderful to your immediate and extended family, and we will always cherish memories of you at your cottage with family in Pointe-du-Chene.

  18. We are late but just learned of Alma’s passing.. Although we did not personally know her, we know her son, Dr. Jamie, very well have been our wonderful doctor for the past 32 years. We wish to pass on our condolences to the Stewart family. May Alma rest in peace with God’s blessing
