A mother of 13 biological children and two stepdaughters, Stewart is remembered as one who made her family a number one priority.

"Mom was one of the finest homemakers. She was an exceptional mother and a phenomenal woman, " said Clive, one of her nine sons.

Cyrus Stewart, her widower, said she was a loyal,

loving and caring wife and mother.

"I have lost my soulmate," he said.

"She was my wife for 47 years. She was a great mother and grandmother and a dedicated servant of God," he added.

Stewart was getting ready for her regular Sunday morning service at the National Baptist Full Gospel Church in Epping Farm when she fell ill. She died shortly afterwards, having left her indelible footprints on the earth.

A thanksgiving service for the life of Adina Stewart will be held on April 2 at the National Baptist Full Gospel Church in Epping Farm, where she served as evangelist.
