[Page 566] -
Cleveland, Mary Abby, Harlon L., and George S. Stewart of Norwalk—and her brother, Alonzo L. Simmons of Fairfield township, surviving her.
     The Cleveland Leader correspondent then wrote of her:
     " Mrs. Stewart was one of the best known women in the city, and she was especially known because of her kindness to the poor.  Her whole life was devoted to the cause of charity and good deeds.  Her interest in the young people was very strong and by them she was greatly beloved."
     Another correspondent wrote:
     "Especially will she be missed and mourned by the young people.  The writer's memory goes back to his boyhood days, and he recalls with pleasant thought the many happy hours spent as one of the neighbors' children, in the house over which this good mother presided with so much gentleness, so much cheerfulness, so much love and affection.  There were always a pleasant smile and a kind word of welcome for every boy and girl who congregated there on play days, and a deep interest was taken in all their games.  The latch string was always out for the young lads and misses, and they were given free rein to romp at will all over the spacious home from attic to basement and from larder to parlor.  No noise or confusion could ruffle the gentleness of the mother of the household—she enjoyed it as much as did the children.  Those who were wont to gather there on those occasions learned as children to love and admire her, and as men and women they have looked up to her with veneration.  All who knew her will remember her with great reverence, but to the younger generation will her memory be  most dear. "
     She was s in her youth a good pianist and vocalist, very social in her home welcomes, fond of reading and intelligent in her studies and opinions.  She took part in the famous Woman's Temperance Crusade of 1874, and was a founder of the Norwalk Christian Temperance Union, which until her death, held its meetings in her parlors.
