Mrs. Helen Frances (Ford) Stewart, age 98, of Cincinnati, Ohio, formerly of Kettering, Ohio, entered this life on September 5, 1921 in Mt. Sterling, Indiana. She was the loving daughter of the late Henry George and Elsie R. (Gibbs) Ford. Helen was raised in Mt. Sterling, Indiana where she attended the Mt. Sterling Grammar School and graduated from Vevay High School in 1940. One week after graduating from high school, she attended Miller School of Business in Cincinnati, Ohio. Helen was a member of the Mt. Sterling Baptist Church and was baptized in the church on October 19, 1933 by Pastor Carlisle. Helen was united in marriage on March 5, 1945 to Robert K. Stewart in Vallejo, California and they shared 58 years together until Robert's passing on October 4, 2003. Helen was formerly employed for 5 years at Wright Aeronautical (now known as GE), 3 years at Montgomery Ward and 13 years for Arnold Hawk Cuthbertson, until they merged with Deloitte, where she continued to work another 20 years until retiring in 1983. During her lifetime, she lived in Cincinnati, Ohio; Kettering, Ohio; Vallejo, California; Chicago, Illinois; but lived most of her life (63 years) in Dayton, Ohio. In May 2013, she moved back to Cincinnati and resided at Eastgate Village Retirement facility to be closer to her son and daughter. Helen enjoyed and was faithful in attending church services and Bible studies. She also enjoyed cooking, gardening, bowling and traveling. She was able to visit a major portion of the U.S. and took several overseas trips with her husband. Helen passed away at 10:00 a.m., Thursday, December 5, 2019, at the Hospice of Cincinnati in Cincinnati, Ohio.
