Family & friends are invited to attend Visiting Hours on Friday, August 18th in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rte. 107), REVERE from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for Eileen M. “Lovey” Lewey (Stuart), who died at the home of her daughter, Linda, on Saturday, August 12th in North Falmouth. “Lovey” had made her home with her daughter for the past six and half years. Her funeral will be conducted from the Funeral Home on Saturday, August 19th at 10:00 a.m., followed by a funeral mass in the Immaculate Conception Church (Corner of Beach St. & Winthrop Ave.) REVERE at 11:00 a.m.

Born in Everett, she lived all of her life in Revere, before moving to the Cape six years ago. She was an alumna of Immaculate Conception High School, Class of 1936 with the reward of Magna Cum Laude. Her early career was in the Shawmut Bank on Broadway, which she really enjoyed. In the 1930s & 1940s the Revere Theatre would sponsor New York producers, presenting “Talent Revues”. During that time, she would meet and fall head over heels over the “lead male vocalist”, Joseph E. Lewey of Library St., Revere (around the corner from where she lived on Elm St.) They were married in March of 1940 and Joseph died in March of 1978. “Lovey” worked at two of Revere’s landmarks, the Arcade Bazaar & the Revere Dog Track before moving onto Jordan Marsh Co. of Boston. There she was the “Matron” of the exclusive “Bridal Shoppe” for over forty years, retiring in 1993 at 76 years of age. She made many friends there, not only with her colleagues, but with the clients, she served. She was “in love” with her job and it defined her. She had the patience of a saint & the taste of a fine “courteor”. Many times she would receive wedding invitations from the girls she helped to select their wedding gown. “Lovey” was indeed the “quintessence” of “Family” & “Motherhood”, leading her to rank “the favorite” in all her circles of friends and family. She was an avid “Line Dancer” & belonged to a group for many many years in Revere. She was also a former member of the Ladies Sodality at I.C.C., the Maria Assunta Guild & was also a Eucharistic Minister for I.C.C. She was a member of the Jordan Marsh Quarter Century Club.

She is the cherished Mother to Joseph E. Lewey Jr. & his wife, Marie of Moorpark, California, Linda A. McDonagh & her husband, Francis P. of North Falmouth, Robert J. Lewey & his wife, Teresa of Athens, Tennessee & the late, Michael J. Lewey. She was the adored grandmother to David Lewey & his wife Leslie of Ventura, California, Karen Lewey of Albany, Oregon, Kim Lewey of Oxnard, California, Brian Lewey of Valencia, California, Gregg Lewey of Lynn, Dr. Jennifer Lewey, M.D. & partner Dylan Tisdale of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Stephanie Lewey of New York, Christopher & Todd Lewey, both of Florida & Amanda Lewey of Everett. She is also lovingly survived by Janice Jones of East Boston, 13 great-grandchildren, many nieces & nephews, grand-nieces & grand-nephews. She is the beloved daughter to the late Eileen C. (Forrestall) Stuart & the late George E. Stuart & proud sister the late Edna F. Geary & her late husband, James W. Geary. Among her nieces & nephews, was the late former Revere Mayor, Robert J. Haas, Jr., who passed on July 3, 2017. Interment will be in Holy Cross Cemetery, Malden.
