Denver Ray Ward

Denver Ray Ward, 77, of Eminence, Missouri went to his heavenly home on Wednesday, February 6, 2019. He was born December 16, 1941 to Elmer Irvin and Betty Maude (Crossen) Ward in Shannon County, Missouri.

Denver and Joyce Gail Burnett were united in marriage on September 13, 1980 in Eminence, Missouri. Denver was a mechanic by trade.

He was preceded in death by his parents, one son, Steven, and one brother, Carl.

He leaves behind his loving wife of 38 years, Joyce of Eminence; one son, Gilbert Ward of Montier; two step-sons, Glen Anderson of Eminence and James Anderson of Fayetteville, North Carolina; two step-daughters, Linda Anderson of Poplar Bluff and Brenda Anderson of Mountain View; one brother, Cecil Ward of Eminence; one sister, Lillie Plowman of Eminence; and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Denver attended and was baptized in the Seventh Day Adventist Church. He very much enjoyed gardening and coon hunting and was very proud of all of his grandchildren. Many would describe him as head-strong; he was determined to do what he wanted to do, no matter what. He was especially particular about the contents of his overall pockets; you'd never catch him without his handkerchief.

Funeral services were held Saturday, February 9, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. Family received friends 1-2:00 p.m. prior to services also at the funeral home. Interment was in Munsell Cemetery, Eminence, Missouri under the direction of Yarber Mortuary, Eminence. Condolences may be expressed at www.yarbermortuary.com.



Ronnie's House
Look out my sister's window
Today like every day,
There stands a little shotgun house,
In morning's light of gray.
A little house by the Dairy Shack,
With a porch in front & a deck out back,
Where we watched parades or cars go by,
Or fireworks on the 4th of July.
It was Ronnie's house & we knew quite well,
he would be inside with tales to tell,
Or a joke or two he was known to crack,
In his little house by the Dairy Shack.
He told me a few years ago,
"I know that I have to let it go,
But I'll bet it lasts as long as me,
And it suits me fine, so I let it be."
Well he left that house, & he won't be back,
Now it's just a house by the Dairy Shack,
In a mist of gray, sitting all alone-
For Ronnie's in his heavenly home.


Timothy John Stewart

Timothy John Stewart was born on August 20, 1982 to John and Judy Stewart of Eminence, Missouri. God's angels took him home to heaven on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, at the age of 36.

Timothy loved life. He enjoyed the great outdoors, being in the sunshine, going to the farm with Dad to check on the cows, calling his loved ones on a cell phone, and telling people to move their vehicle in the parking lot at the motel. Timmy loved going for rides in the van, jeep, car, truck, convertible mustang, and four-wheeler. He also loved going for boat rides on the Current River and watching his nieces and nephews. He loved strumming his guitar and listening to music. He loved being part of the hunting cadre and always got a picture with the deer or turkey with a big smile on his face.

He overcame many medical obstacles in his life with a great determination. He graduated from Eminence and Ozark Hills School in Salem, Missouri. He loved his teachers and staff. Ms. Mary made a true difference in his life. He had the honor of being a groomsman in Ms. Ardith's wedding. He taught his family unconditional true love and to appreciate the little things in life. He was insistent that anyone sitting at the dinner table take their hat or cap off before eating, wear a seatbelt in a vehicle, and park their car in the right spot or they would hear "Move it!". He loved holding the babies in the family and he was always ready to give a backrub. The bond that he had with his family cannot be expressed in words.

Timothy John Stewart was preceded in death by his grandparents, G.E. (Buck) and Loreen Maggard and Charles and Annie Stewart; a niece, Loreena Rein Liggett; a special cousin, Anthony Anson Harris; Uncle Dwight L. Maggard; and Aunts, Omaleta R. Cross, Eleanor L. Maggard, and Sharon R. Stewart.

Timothy is survived by his parents, John Joseph and Judy Jane Stewart; one sister, Bridget Loreen Liggett (husband Ryan); one brother, Jonathan Walter Stewart (wife Jordan); nephews and nieces, Garrett Cinch Liggett, Rein Gustus Liggett, Jake Alan Stewart, Presley Jane Stewart, and Ridge Charles Stewart of Eminence, MO; Uncle George Eugene Maggard of Salem, MO; aunts, Susan Jordan (husband Carol) of Salem, MO and Debbie Maggard of Lebanon, MO; Uncle Charles Luther Stewart (wife Julie) of Eminence, MO; and a host of cousins, friends, and extended family.

He loved his special friends Marcello Mariani and Alex Ramsey, who took him riding around, fishing, to the park, shopping, and out to lunch. Timmy loved making cakes and waffles. His favorite food was vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup on top.

Special thanks go out to Marcello Mariani, Alex Ramsey, Dusty Ard, and Bob Skrukrud for all their help during the last months of Timmy's amazing life.

Memorials for Timmy may be made to the Akers Cemetery Association or to the Shannon County Museum Association at the Riverside Motel, 19159 State Highway 19, Eminence MO 65466.

Timmy will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing and meeting him
