Arletia May Stewart passed away on April 8, 2021 at 96. Arletia was born December 22, 1924, in Linwood, KS to parents Julius and Louesa (Lucken) Torneden. Arletia married John Thomas Stewart on July 27, 1943 in Oskaloosa, KS.

In addition to raising their three children, Arletia took pride in her 26 years as plant auditor at KPL. She was a long-time member of First Presbyterian Church in Lawrence. Arletia loved to walk the trails at Clinton Lake, was an avid reader, and a master gardener who spent hours tending her garden. She and John enjoyed exploring the country together on well-organized bus tours, hosting extended family reunions and reconnecting with friends at John's 106th Infantry reunions. Arletia loved pampering her dogs, most recently, Chloe, who came to visit often.

Arletia is survived by sons John (Judy) and Robert (Nancy), granddaughter Amy Stewart Harting (Scott), and great grandsons Andrew Stewart and Joshua Harting.

Arletia is preceded in death by her husband of 75 years John, brothers Richard and Elmer Torneden, daughter Gladys Stewart Tipton, grandson Robert and great grandson Christopher Stewart. Lawrence Chapel Oaks Cremation & Funeral Services is honored to serve the Stewart family. See www.chapeloaksne.comfor online condolences.

Aunt Arletia was such a nice Aunt. She was so thoughtful calling my Dad and lifting his spirits. She only had good things to say about everyone. I will miss talking to her. She will be in everyone’s hearts forever.
