Christine Marie Stewart

Christine M. Stewart, nee Leono in Saint Louis on August 20, 1957, passed away on January 28, 2024, in the same city. She was a remarkable woman who touched the lives of many during her time on this earth. Her obituary is written in an evocative tone to honor her memory and celebrate her life.

Christine had a passion for jewelry making that brought light and beauty into her life. It was through this art form that she expressed her creativity and left a lasting legacy of stunning pieces. Her attention to detail and artistic flair were evident in every piece she crafted, making her jewelry not just ornaments but works of art that held sentimental value for those lucky enough to wear them.

Beyond her artistic pursuits, Christine was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and sweetheart. She cherished the bonds she shared with her family and friends and took pleasure in their companionship. Though life dealt her many losses throughout the years – the late Ronald P. Stewart (husband), the late Alta W. Leono (mother), the late Mark A. Leono (father), and the late Michael A. Leono (brother) – she faced each moment of sadness with resilience and continued to find joy in the company of those who remained.

Wanita Sawicki nee Stewart, Christine's daughter, held a special place in her heart. As a mother-daughter duo, they shared a unique bond rooted in love, understanding, and support. Christine nurtured Wanita's dreams and aspirations while imparting valuable life lessons that have shaped Wanita into the remarkable person she is today.

Christine's presence extended beyond immediate family—one could often find her surrounded by laughter and stories from her dear granddaughter Susanna Puettman or engaging in playful banter with grandson James A. Stewart. She adored spending time with them, cherishing each moment as they grew and built their own paths in life. Christine took pride in the achievements and milestones of her family, finding immense joy in watching them thrive. Kaitlyn M. Sawicki, Christine's granddaughter, brought warmth and joy into her life. The love between a grandmother and granddaughter is unique, and Christine embraced this bond with open arms. Whether sharing secrets or indulging in lighthearted activities together, their connection was a source of happiness for both.

Amidst all these relationships, there was one person who held a special place in Christine's heart: Librado Gil, her sweetheart. Their love was steadfast and unwavering despite the challenges they faced throughout their journey together. They found solace and support in each other's arms as they navigated the highs and lows of life—a testament to the depth of their connection.

Christine's presence will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. Her memory lives on through the beauty she created, the love she shared, and the happiness she spread during her time on Earth. As we bid farewell to this remarkable woman, let us celebrate her life, her creativity, and the enduring impact she has had on our lives. May her spirit guide us to cherish every moment with our loved ones and find inspiration in the artistry that surrounds us.
