   Virginia Lee Stewart Rebardie was born the daughter of Richmond and Naomi (Huddleston) Stewart on April 19, 1943, in Alton, Missouri. She died on July 4, 2023, in Thayer, Missouri at 80 years old.

    She spent her growing up years in Texas City, Texas working as a nurse’s aide.

    One of the highlights of her life was pioneering with her dear friend Elsie Herbold in Arkansas and Oklahoma while working at a variety of jobs to support herself.

    She married the love of her life Larry Rebardie Sr. in June 1992. They also pioneered together and was a great asset to the Thayer Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses and loved by many.

 Virginia loved to write poetry, take pictures and paint.  She was not afraid to tackle any new art styles and then share her projects with others. Knowing everyone’s sizes was important to Virginia so when she was at a thrift store or a garage sale, she was on the lookout to add to her family and friend’s wardrobe.

   Virginia will be remembered for her love of Bible truths and sharing them with others. We will dearly miss our sister, Virginia Lee.

    She is preceded in death by her husband of 30 years Larry Rebardie Sr., her father Richmond and her mother Naomi.

    She is survived by Larry Rebardie Jr., his wife Gwen and Warren Rebardie, wife Jennifer; six grandkids; five great-grandkids; one beloved sister Arlene (Steve) Whittington; two brothers Rich (Gail) Stewart, and Keith (Jean) Stewart; many nieces and nephews, and many youths who grew up calling her Aunt Virginia.

   Memorial service will be held on Sunday, August 6, 2023, 1:30 p.m. at Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses Thayer, Missouri.
