   Stewart E. Schuett, the son of Marvin and Elaine Schuett, was born on March 4, 1956, in Ida Grove, Iowa. When Stewart was young the family relocated to Colorado but returned to Ida Grove in 1990.

   Stewart joined Independent Living of Holstein, Iowa, and resided at the Summer Set Apartments in Holstein. He was employed by ISI for several years and enjoyed working various jobs up until the COVID-19 pandemic.

   A devoted Christian, Stewart was a member of the St. Paul Lutheran Church of Ida Grove, Iowa. He loved to travel and took many adventures with his brother Steven. They enjoyed traveling to Memphis, Las Vegas, The Black Hills, Florida making a stop at Disney, Minnesota to the Mall of America, Badlands of North Dakota, and to California where Stewart had the opportunity to dip his toes in the ocean, which brought him pure joy.

   During his life Stewart had the past privilege of participating in the Special Olympics in bowling where he achieved two medals. He loved to watch and listen to the birds. His step mother Dorla gave him a book on birds which he truly cherished along with her visits. He also enjoyed painting, taking walks, going to the movies at the State Theater in Holstein, old westerns, Christmas season, and was an avid Elvis fan and memorabilia collector. A tall man with a gentle spirit who was soft spoken, Stewart will hold a place in the hearts of those that loved him forever.

   Stewart recently became ill and was later diagnosed with liver cancer in 2020. He resided at the Willow Dale Wellness Village of Battle Creek, Iowa, where in his final days he was bravely and gently called home to his Lord and Savior on Saturday, July 24, 2021.

   Stewart is preceded in death by his parents Marvin and Elaine Schuett; sister, Linda Pastore; brother, Steven Schuett; and several aunts and uncles.

“What a pleasure to have known Stewart for the past 18 years. A kind and gentle spirit he was with an outgoing personality. He had a smile that beamed and a laugh that echoed. Underneath that beard was a kind soul who enjoyed life. Rest in peace my friend. Mike Andrews. P.S. be sure to tell Elvis hello.”

“Marc and I lived next to Marvin and Dorla Schuett for many years. Stewart would visit next door often. We always would call out and say "Hi Stewart". Stewart would give us this big smile, wave, and would say 'Hi' back! Wherever we saw Stewart, he was so friendly and genuinely a wonderful person. He could always warm your heart & put a smile on your face. One of the best that God called home. Blessings to the will certainly miss Stewart! ”
