The loss is great because the gift was extraordinary …Goodbye Maggie Anne


MARGUERITE STEWART On Sunday, July 6, 2008, Mollie and John Stewart IV of Henderson, said goodbye to their beautiful daughter, Marguerite “Maggie” Anne Stewart, at Sunrise Children’s Hospital, Las Vegas. Maggie was born at Henderson’s St. Rose Siena Hospital May 9, 2007. Although we only had her physically for a short 14 months, her spirit and our wonderful memories of her will be with us forever. Energetic, social, happy, coy, cuddly – all describe Maggie. Always on the go with a need to be in the middle of every gathering, her smile lit up the room and the accompanying little head tilt melted it. But, as big and strong as her heart was figuratively, it required some fine-tuning physically, and the minute or two of rest or cuddling that reenergized and revitalized her was no longer sufficient. Complications during a procedure to make her heart as perfect as the rest of Maggie led to God bringing her home. Along with Mollie and John, also surviving her are grandparents, Andrea and John “Stew” Stewart III of Lodi, Calif., and Bonnie and Mike Scott of Henderson; great-grandmother, Martha “Mimi” Howatt of Lodi; aunts and uncles, Shelby and David Matthews of Alexandria, Va., and Kelley and Nichole Scott, and their children, TJ and Kylie of Coon Rapids, Minn.; and a multitude of other caring relatives and friends. God blessed Maggie – His real blessing is giving us Maggie. Services for Maggie will be at 3 p.m. Thursday, July 10, at Palm Mortuary, 7600 S. Eastern Ave. Viewing will start at 2 p.m. A ‘Marguerite “Maggie” Anne Stewart Memorial Fund’ has been established – the funds will be distributed to ‘The Children’s Heart Foundation’ and Las Vegas’s Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church Pre-School Scholarship Fund. The fund address is: Wells Fargo, Attn: Travis French, MAC S4733-011, 3800 Howard Hughes Parkway, Suite 100, Las Vegas, NV 89169.
