Carol Sue Stewart of Knox, PA died on January 19, 2023 at UPMC Northwest Hospital.
She was born January 14, 1963 in Meadville, PA to parents Harley Ardrey and Emily Howe Stewart.
She attended Titusville High School and worked at various jobs in Pennsylvania, mostly in oil fields.
Carol was a rugged lover of nature, a good laugh in the company of friends. She could strike lively conversations with anyone she met and never shied away from rolling up her sleeves to help, no matter how dirty the job, as long as she had her notorious ball cap on and her favorite beverage in hand. She will be long remembered for her tough exterior but tender heart.
She is survived by two children, Shawn and Caitlyn Crusan, a stepdaughter, Bear Bernice Simpkins, two grandchildren and one step-granddaughter, Brittany Hess. Also surviving are two sisters, Joyce Sliter (Gary) and Anne Baker (Dale) and several nieces and a nephew. The family wishes to recognize her faithful friends: Donna Schreffler, Michael Bell, Roy Schreffler, all of Knox, Carol Phillips of Marienville and Amy Shultz of Emlenton.
She was predeceased by her parents and four brothers, David, R. Bruce, Randy and Gary Lee Stewart.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Arrangements are under the direction of ROBERT W. WAID FUNERAL HOME, 581 CHESTNUT ST., MEADVILLE where memories and condolences may be shared at www.waidfuneralhome.net
