Edith Emma Stewart (nee Kelly) went to sleep peacefully Monday evening in her Amherst home and woke up Tuesday, November 22, 2022, in the presence of her Lord and Saviour, with whom she enjoyed a personal relationship for 70+ years. 

As a graduate of the PEI School of Nursing, Class of 1951, Edith worked at the Amherst and Springhill Hospitals in earlier years. Edith and her late husband, Floyd, spent many years showing the compassion and love of Christ to families and children in the Amherst – Oxford – Springhill area. Her home was always open, and her phone always available for those in distress or needing support. She knew what it was to weep with those who weep, and to rejoice with those who rejoice. 

Edith was a well-known Christian in many circles throughout the Maritimes and beyond and a faithful member of the Amherst Gospel Hall. 

She was the sweetheart mother of Stephen (deceased), Rebecca (Leland) Swan, Lorna (Theodore) Chiasson, Joy (Peter) Ramsay, Sylvia (Peter) Pitts, and Neil (Margaret) Stewart. Adored by her sixteen grandchildren and twenty-two great-grandchildren. 

She was predeceased by her husband, Floyd Stewart; her parents, Lorne and Charlotte Kelly; her brothers Walter (Bea), Hammond (Helen), and Blair; and her sister Helen (Arthur).

Edith (92) will also be missed by her many nieces and nephews and her special sister-in-law Florence (Blair) Kelly in Stratford, PEI.
