Text size

Jonesport - "Spankey" Ruth Stewart slipped into the arms of her Savior 1/5/17 after a period of declining health. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Roy and daughter, Willow. She leaves behind a son John, his wife Marie and grand-daughter Haily who she loved spending time in the kitchen with. She also leaves behind a daughter Kerri. She was also close with her niece Kim and her family—husband Peter and grand-nephews Isaac, Caleb, and Logan, nephew Jamie, his wife Stephanie and grand-nephews Evan, Finn, and grand-niece Piper. She considered these children to be her own grandkids and never missed an opportunity to spoil them. Also missing her will be her sister Terri and her husband Rick, nephew Tim and his family and many extended friends and family, especially her dear friend Marcia Skeate who was with her until the end. Spankey enjoyed knitting, quilting, cooking and baking. For many years she had a cake decorating business and taught classes in her home. She found solace on the Schooner Roseway with her husband and they spent many weeks sailing the coast of Maine and beyond. She worked as an LPN for decades and spread her love and care to every resident that had the pleasure of meeting her. She was a gardening expert and in her later years enjoyed collecting and sharing day lilies. A memorial service will be held at the Jonesport Wesleyan Church on 4 Arks St., Thursday, 1/12/17 at 6:00 PM.
