Obituary

David Mack Stewart age 83, of Marble Hill, MO passed away on Monday, October 12, 2020 in Jackson, MO.

He was born September 20, 1937 in St. Louis, MO, son of Harold “Mack” Stewart and Lora Mae (Coil) Stewart. He and Lee Frances Pomeroy were united in marriage on September 1, 1962 in Lutesville, MO and she passed away on December 10, 2016.

David had many careers throughout his life, but had a special love for teaching and writing. He was a professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and also Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, MO. David studied theology and English and held degrees in math, physics, and a Ph.D. in geophysics, and was a well-respected seismologist and scientist. For many years he was known as the foremost expert regarding the New Madrid fault, and authored and co-authored several books on earthquakes. David was a childbirth educator with the Bradley Method, a statistician in the field of childbirth, and co-authored several books on natural childbirth and midwifery, one of which won the “Books of the Year Award” in the American Journal of Nursing. Together David and Lee founded NAPSAC International (The International Association of Parents and Professionals for Safe Alternatives in Childbirth). David was also a retired United Methodist pastor. Over the last twenty years, David expressed his love for teaching through essential oils and aromatherapy, a field in which he became well known and respected for his publications, knowledge, and seminars. He was beloved by many whom he touched as a mentor and friend, and may be most well known for his books Healing Oils of the Bible and Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple: God’s Love Manifest in Molecules. In 2001 David and Lee founded CARE International (Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education). Many years later they together reached the coveted rank of Diamond with Young Living Essential Oils. Countless lives have been touched by David and his many works.

He is survived by his sons Jonathan (Pamela) Stewart of Bartlesville, Oklahoma; Keith (Shu-O) Stewart of Jackson, MO; Benjamin (Jennifer) Stewart of Glendale, California; Anthony Stewart of Marble Hill, MO; daughter Lora Lee Stewart of Rome, GA; brother Ted Stewart of Jefferson City, MO, sisters Sue Ellen Brockmeier of Kansas City, MO and Jan Stauffer of Portland, OR, seventeen grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

Preceding him in death were his wife Lee and his parents.

Visitation will be on Friday, October 16, 2020 from 4:00 to 8:00 PM at the Liley Funeral Home in Marble Hill, MO.
