Mrs. Charlotte Antoinette Dennis Stewart

"The Lord Giveth and the Lord Taketh Away. Blessed be the Name of the Lord."

With heavy hearts, the Stewart, Dennis and Tolbert families deeply regret to announce the Home -Going of our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Cousin and Friend, Mrs. Charlotte Antoinette Dennis Stewart. Mama, Cha-Cha, Sis Charlotte, and Aunty Charlotte as she was affectionately called departed this life peacefully on Sunday, November 27, 2011 at the Sinkor, Liberia home of her daughter and son-in law Mrs. Elfrieda J. Stewart Tamba and Mr. Kollie Tamba.

Charlotte Antoinette Dennis was born on April 20, 1934 unto the union of Willie A. Dennis and Elfrieda Sara-Ann Tolbert Dennis of Careysburg/Bentol, Liberia. She was the Eldest of four Children. Charlotte was married to the late Honorable Frank J. Stewart, Sr., the Budget Director of the Republic of Liberia during the Tolbert administration.

Deaconess Charlotte was an ardent member of the Providence Baptist Church, Monrovia. She worked tirelessly for the Lord through many Providence Church positions, including service as President of the Women's Department, Sunday School Teacher, Member of Dorcas Circle, and other roles too numerous to mention. She was a leader as well in the Baptist Compact, as Secretary of the Baptist Convention and as an international church ambassador to North and South America, the Caribbean, and other nations. Among her many Baptist Compact good works was her prize project, the LOCASHA Bridge (a bridge to help bring the gospel to people throughout Liberia). Her work for the Lord continued in the USA even while displaced by the Liberia Civil War, where she was a proud founding Member of the Providence Baptist Association. She also manifested her community spirit through participation in the Order of the Eastern Star society in Liberia.

Mrs. Charlotte Stewart was a trailblazer in the world of work dominated by men. She was Executive Secretary to Solicitor General the Honorable Roland Barnes at the Ministry of Justice, Liberia. She was well known and respected by all citizens as the Proprietress of Charlotte Supermarket on Old Road.

Charlotte Stewart was predeceased by her father Mr. Willie A. Dennis, mother Mrs. Elfrieda Tolbert, husband Hon. Frank J Stewart Sr., brother Mr. Richelieu A. Dennis Sr. and grandson Christiansen Stewart.

She will be missed. She leaves to mourn her loss while cherishing her memories a host of family and friends. Joined in suffering and pride, these include her children Nancy Stewart Nwabunnia and husband Tony, Elfrieda Stewart Tamba and husband Kollie, Rev. Frank J. Stewart Jr. and wife Bankee, and Charlotte Stewart Stubblefield and husband Farmere, her grandchildren Joshua Primus, Antoinette, Toulia, and Elfrieda Nwabunnia; Charlotte, Francesca, and Rachel Stewart; and Dakinah, Gnenpu, and Baimba Stubblefield; her siblings, Mrs. Toulia Dennis, Mr. Cyrus Dennis, Mrs. Maude Dennis, Mary Dennis, and Mrs. Phoebe Dennis-Fords and other brothers and sisters aunts, uncles, nieces, nephew and cousins of the Tolbert/Dennis/Stewart families; her sisters-in-law Mrs. Petina Askie, Mrs. Tidi Stewart, Mrs. Casselia Stewart, Mrs. Maima Stewart and Mrs. Margaret Stewart; and a host of nieces and nephews.

May Light Perpetual Shine Upon Her.
