Nell Stuart

May 31, 1929 — June 20, 2012



God looked around his garden and found an empty space. He then looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face. He knew that you were suffering and in pain. He knew that when he called you home we would all meet up again. We know you are at peace now and our lives here must go on. It broke our hearts to lose you but you did not go alone. Part of us went with you the day God called you home. Nell Bordelon Stuart, a beloved mother, sister and aunt, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at 2:30 am at the home of family in Gonzales, LA.

Nell will be remembered as a loving and caring person who enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Her hobbies were crocheting, painting, reading and enjoying music. Her precious gift of faith never wavered. She always knew her Lord would take care of her. She had a gentle strength, great faith and gratitude. During her illness, she consistently demonstrated bravery, patience and spirituality. Her greeting and farewell to everyone was always the same I Love You. The clouds parted as she went on to the sunset of her life For yesterday is already a dream and tomorrow is only a vision but today, well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Special thanks to the doctor and staff of Amedisys Hospice, family and dear friends who cared for her for long periods of time.
