Title

 

To Honor and Celebrate the Life of Nancy Bell Stewart and Extend Sincere Condolences to her Family and Friends on the Occasion of her Passing

 

 

 

Body

 

WHEREAS, Nancy was born on November 6th, 1939 to John and Catherine Bell of Brockton Massachusetts; and

 

WHEREAS, a mother, community activist, promoter and protector of Clintonville, Nancy often opened up her home in service to the organizations that she was involved with, including the Clintonville Area Commission, the Sharon Heights Neighborhood Association, the Democratic Party, Ward 21, Flags on High, and many others; and

 

WHEREAS, when she wasn’t volunteering, Nancy enjoyed tending to her garden and caring for the birds who lived in her collection of birdhouses, as well as traveling, which she had a lifelong passion and excitement for; and

 

WHEREAS, Nancy had a preference for working in the background and bringing support and recognition to others, which is best demonstrated by her attempt to abdicate herself from the honor of Clintonville Area Chamber of Commerce Community Volunteer of the Year so someone else could be honored; and

 

WHEREAS, Nancy is survived by her sister, Mabel Sawyer and Mabel’s husband Curtis Sawyer of Bridgewater Massachusetts, her son James Russell Stewart and daughter-in-law Victoria Stewart of Columbus Ohio, her daughter Jennifer Ann Stewart and son-in-law David Anthony of Cincinnati, niece Beth Sawyer and nephew John Sawyer, life-long friend and global travel companion Elinor Reynolds, and her former husband and friend, Philip David Stewart of Sarasota Florida; now, therefore

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF COLUMBUS:

That this Council does hereby honor and celebrate the life of Nancy Bell Stewart and extend our sincerest condolences to her family and friends on the occasion of her passing.
