Francesca Stewart
(December 12, 1963 in Queens, NY - September 29, 2010 in Port Bolivar, TX)


Francesca Stewart, known to friends as SweetFrani, lost her battle with breast cancer on September 29, 2010.

Francesca Marie Stewart went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 at the age of 46 in Port Bolivar. She was one of six children born to Russell and Barbara Strimple on December 12, 1963, in Queens, New York. She grew up in Houston. She was married to R. D. Stewart for 9 years. He was her loving husband and caregiver during her illness. She worked for Hair Clubs for Men in Houston before moving to Crystal Beach to work for her Aunt Skip. Then she worked for the State on the Bolivar ferry. She was a loving mother and wife.

Francesca was very talented and loved drawing, cutting out and painting wooden Christmas ornaments for their yard at Christmas time.

She was preceded in death by her parents Russell and Barbara Anne Strimple of Houston and sister Tara Strimple.

Francesca is survived by her husband R. D. Stewart; son Junior Stewart.


Also survived by stepdaughters Heather and Courtney Stewart of New Mexico; brothers Russell and wife Melissa Strimple,
Chris Strimple and Patrick Strimple and wife Jamie Strimple; sister Sharon Strimple; 5 nieces and 2 nephews.
She has since been joined by her brother, Christopher Daniel Strimple.

There will be no services, as she donated her body to science.

Rest in Peace, dear SweetFrani.

"Ships of Heaven "

"Don't cry for me when I'm gone
Keep the faith and be strong
'Cause through it all I've been blessed
I faced my fears
And I've passed the test
So when you look up in the sky
On a sunny day
Imagine me drifting away

I'll be sailing on the ships of heaven
When the tide rolls out for the
Last time
You'll find me sailing on the ships of heaven
Waiting for the day
I come sailing back to you

Remember all the times we had
Some were great and some were sad
But you know that in the end
Our love was stronger then when we began
No unforgiven sins and no regrets
Just the times of our lives that we'll
Never Forget

I'll be sailing on the ships of heaven
When the tide rolls out for the
Last time
You'll find me sailing on the ships of heaven
Waiting for the day
I come sailing back to you

I'll be sailing on the ships of heaven
When the tide rolls out for the
Last time
You'll find me sailing on the ships of heaven
Waiting for the day
I come sailing back to you

When the tide rolls out for the
Last time
You'll find me sailing on the ships of heaven
Waiting for the day
I come sailing back to you

On the ships of heaven
I come sailing back to you...
