First United Methodist Church ~ Omaha, Nebraska

Marylin M. Stewart of Omaha, Nebraska, passed away Tuesday, January 5.  Marylin was born April 23, 1933, in Omaha, the daughter of Stephen Edward Stewart and Mary (Kammerer) Stewart.  She grew up in Anselmo, Nebraska.  She graduated from Anselmo Merna High School, Hastings College, and earned her graduate degree in microbiology from the University of Omaha.  She worked at Clarkson Hospital, leading a long career as Director of med tech students and teaching numerous classes over the course of her time there.  She also served on the faculty of UNMC.

Marylin was a longtime resident of Omaha, active in many charitable, community and civic organizations, and a devoted member of the First United Methodist Church.  She loved to be around others and was an important part of so many peoples’ lives, from her church family to her neighbors to friends she encountered throughout her life.  Nebraska football held a special place in her heart, and she was a regular attendee of games for decades.  She was a skilled knitter, providing many special gifts to friends, family, and donations to people whom she’d never meet over the years.  She loved to read, bake, and enjoyed everything Omaha had to offer.  Above all, she had a heart for God and others.

She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Bill, Dick, and Bob, and her sister Betty.  She is survived by her niece Susan, nephews Mike, Steve, Dean, Eric (Julie), Eddie, and Bill (Jennifer), sisters in law Connie and Cel, and great nieces and nephews Kate, Emma, Rob, and Harry.

Those of us who were lucky enough to have her in their lives will miss her greatly.

    Marilyn selected me to be one of her Medical Technologist Students in 1969. She made it possible for a small town girl to have an amazing career. With her encouragement to keep going when school was tough and an immediate job upon graduation I have fulfilled my dream of helping patients, doctors, nurses, and other techs until 2019. She was one in a million and will be missed. Our sympathy to the family. We heard about all of you at the lab. She loved her family. I wish I could remember peoples names as well as Marilyn could. May God cushion her in his arms. Connie and Ralph Peppard
