Fannie  Stewart


Fannie Mae Ison Stewart, 94, of Ashland, died April 10, 2019, following an extended illness.
She was born February 26, 1925, in Catlettsburg, to Charles and Lora Ison.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, James Stewart; her brothers, William, Curtis and Allan; and two grandsons, Robbie Lewis Byrd and Shannon Michael Newman.
She is survived by her three children, Beverly (and Bill) Vice of St. Augustine, Fla.; Chere (and Gene) Hallahan of Ashland; and James (and Jodi) Stewart II of Winchester, Va.; Grandchildren, James (and Tianne) Newman of Ashland,; Angela (and Jarrod) Geary of Ashland; Alex Stewart of Sterling, Va.; and Audrey Stewart of Winchester, Va. Great-grandchildren Jacob, Taylor, Charlize, Alina, Journey and Adalynn. Great great-grandchild Linden.
She was a graduate of Thomas R. Brown High School in Catlettsburg. She retired from Sears in 1986. And she enjoyed being team mom to the Ashland area baseball teams that her husband coached.
She was reared in the Nazarene tradition. And she dearly loved her church and her God and family and without personal regard gave to those in need. She always had a kind word to those who stopped by while she sat on her porch. She was an avid stamp collector. The flowers that adorn the corner of Nolte Street and South 29th Street were planted by her and enjoyed by all.
The funeral service will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at Rose Hill Burial Park Mausoleum Chapel with Rev. Gene Hallahan officiating.
Visitation will be at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Neal-Kilgore Collier Funeral Home in Catlettsburg.

Jamie I never know what to say to people in situations like this.

..... I do know that I am so sorry and can't imagine the heartache you feel losing your mother. (What a beautiful lady she was)

I will continue to pray that God puts some peace & comfort in your heart letting you know she is healed.

πŸ’ŸRIP Ms. Stewart

Chere I am so sorry to see this about your mom. What a joy she was to visit and occasionly kid her about her puzzle or word game she always had with her on the front porch. I know your heart is breaking but you are blessed with the knowledge of where she rests for all eternity. God bless and comfort you and all your family as you go through this sad time.
Your friend , Bill Conley
