ITEM ASSOCIATED WITH P20030049002, P20030049003 AND P20030049026. ITEM (S) BELONGED TO THE DONOR’S AUNT, IRIS WILMA STEWART (1921-2003). MS STEWART WAS AN ACTIVE BOWLER. SHE WAS KNOWN TO BOWL EVERY WEEK IN A LEAGUE AND CONTINUED TO DO SO UNTIL HER HEALTH WOULD NO LONGER PERMIT (LATE 90S). MS STEWART WAS BORN IN INDIAN HEAD, SASKATCHEWAN, THE FOURTH CHILD OF WILLIAM EVERETT STEWART (1886-1968) AND SARAH JANE (CUTT) STEWART (1891-1968). MS STEWART MOVED TO WINNIPEG WITH HER PARENTS IN THE EARLY 1930S. SHE AND HER MOTHER ALWAYS CALLED INDIAN HEAD “HOME” BUT STAYED IN WINNIPEG. MS. STEWART NEVER MARRIED AND LIVED WITH HER PARENTS UNTIL THEIR DEATHS. DURING HER TIME IN WINNIPEG, MS. STEWART WORKED IN DIFFERENT OFFICES ONE BEING THE SECURITY STORAGE AND REXALL DRUGS HEAD OFFICE. SHE ATTENDED THE UNITED CHURCH AND WAS A CGIT LEADER. SHE LOVED CANADIAN FOOTBALL AND THE WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS. SHE WAS A SEASON TICKET HOLDER AND ATTENDED MANY GREY CUP EVENTS INCLUDING THE “FOG BOWL” IN TORONTO. SHE WAS ALSO A BOWLER AND CURLER WHICH TOOK HER TOO MANY TOURNAMENTS AND BONSPIELS. IN 1973, FIVE YEARS AFTER HER PARENTS’ DEATHS, MS. STEWART MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE TO BE NEAR HER BROTHER EVERETT, WHO HAD BEEN WIDOWED IN 1967, AND HIS DAUGHTER JEAN AND HER TWO CHILDREN. MS. STEWART WORKED FOR ROSSITER AGENCIES AND HAGEN ELECTRIC, AMONG OTHER BUSINESSES. SHE RETIRED IN 1986 AND TRAVELED WITH FRIENDS. SHE ALWAYS ATTENDED THE INDIAN HEAD, SASKATCHEWAN HOME COMING REUNIONS AND WAS HEAVILY INVOLVED IN GENEALOGY FOR THE FAMILY. SHE CONTINUED TO PARTICIPATE IN CURLING AND BOWLING UNTIL HER HEALTH WOULD NOT ALLOW IT. SHE VOLUNTEERED AT THE LETHBRIDGE SENIOR CITIZENS ORGANIZATION BOUTIQUE AND AT THE ALBERTA GENEALOGY LIBRARY IN LETHBRIDGE. THROUGHOUT HER ENTIRE LIFE, MS. STEWART SUFFERED FROM BRONCHIETASIS, A SEVERE CONDITION OF THE BRONCHIA, WHICH LIMITED HER LUNG CAPACITY. SHE HAD PNEUMONIA WHEN SHE WAS A CHILD AND IT LEFT HER WITH THIS CONDITION. IT WAS AMAZING THAT SHE WORKED AND PLAYED AS HARD AS SHE DID OVER THE YEARS. HER CONDITION PREVENTED HER FROM SERVING IN THE ARMY DURING WWII. SHE DID HOWEVER WORK AS AN OFFICE WORKER FOR THE ARMY DURING THE WAR. SHE OPERATED ONE OF THE FIRST COMPUTERS THAT DID PAYROLL. IT WAS CALLED AN “ENIAC.” SHE ALWAYS SAID IT “WAS A REAL PAIN TO OPERATE – IT WAS ALWAYS JAMMING OR BREAKING DOWN.” MS. STEWART CORRESPONDED WITH PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD AND HAD FRIENDS FROM EVERY STAGE IN HER LIFE ALTHOUGH SHE COULD BE A REAL BEAR TO HER FAMILY. SHE LIVED IN LEGION TERRACE ON 4TH STREET SOUTH, FROM THE TIME IT OPENED UNTIL HER DEATH ON JULY 7TH, 2003.
