LYNN, JANIE  
JANIE LYNN We celebrate the passing of a wonderful woman. Janie Lynn passed Saturday, June 6, 2016. Janie Lynn was born Aug. 27, 1944, in Cleveland. Janie was an entrepreneur and leader her whole life. After 18 years in the jewelry business and traveling alone with a fortune of jewels and gold, she became one of the earliest founders of LED Lighting, starting LED, Inc. and Turboflare International. Her priority has been to continue the business so her family of employee's can continue their livelihood and Janie's legacy. Giving back to her community was of high importance to Janie. She was a dedicated Rotarian becoming an honorary member in 2016. Janie started the Coats for Kids program in Woodland Hills, Calif., served as president of the Sunset Club and started the Annual Soar program honoring men and women from 20 service agencies in the Las Vegas valley. Her dedication to education, fairness and generosity have been an inspiration to those who have been lucky enough to call her mom, grandma and friend. She is survived by her two children, Richard and Suzanne; and grandson, Thomas, whom she raised from age four, son of her deceased daughter, Alycia. She has five additional grandchildren; and one great-grandchild, who brought great joy to her life. Janie's wishes were to be remembered for her life and vibrancy, not mourned for her passing. We will be having a celebration of life in July. Please visit Janie Lynn Celebration of Life Facebook page and join the event for notification as details are finalized.

STEWART, DONALD  
DONALD STEWART Donald G. Stewart passed away peacefully the night of May 26, 2016, in his sleep, at the Veteran's Home in Boulder City. Don was born Dec. 10, 1925, in Logandale, and was a longtime resident of Las Vegas thereafter. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps during World War II. Don was extremely proud of his heritage as the great-grandson of Helen J. Stewart, often referred to as the first Lady of Las Vegas. Don's great-grandmother, Helen J. Stewart, settled the Las Vegas valley with her husband, Archibald, in 1882 to take control of the Las Vegas Ranch. Archibald was killed in a gunfight at the Kyle ranch in July 1884 and after a few years, Helen J. sold all but four acres of the ranch to William Clark in 1902. The property acquired by Mr. Clark was then auctioned off as homestead property in 1905 and the city of Las Vegas was born. For close to 30 years, Don worked as a civil service employee for Nellis Air Force Base, rising to the position of water superintendent prior to his early retirement in his mid-40's, enabled by the sale of property holdings. For the remainder of his life, Don simply enjoyed living. He was a very caring and giving individual, with many the recipient of his kind and generous nature. He especially loved the outdoors and was an avid racing enthusiast. He leaves behind his brother, Bob; sister, Marianne; his son, J. Todd Stewart (Carol); grandchildren, Don (Stacie), Joseph and Jillian; his three great-granddaughters, Madilyn, Amelia and Beckhamm; and his beloved surrogate son, Stewart Fifield. Don will be truly missed by the many individuals he touched during his lifetime. Memorial services will be at 11:20 a.m. Friday, July 1, Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 1900 Veterans Memorial Drive, Boulder City.
