With a beautiful wave of her beautiful hand, she has gone home!

Our hearts are heavy, as well as the hearts of so many others. We awoke on the morning of 10/6/12 to news that our beloved GA Peach Author Dee Stewart, a.k.a. Miranda Parker, passed away. We knew Dee had serious health issues, but she purged on and stayed busy and showed up and helped out. We just knew she'd beat this because she convinced us of that. She'd resigned as a GA Peach last year because of her health, but she was our guest author 1 month ago in Decatur - we had no idea that was the last time we'd see her. A further reminder of how very short life is. She will always be our GA Peach! So positive and so strong, so sweet and so beautiful! WE LOVE YOU, DEE - and will miss you dearly. Life well lived - on angel's wings you are!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥


  1. I'm still in shock because I can't believe that Dee Stewart, aka Miranda Parker, has passed away. I had the pleasure of getting to know Dee when she was briefly a member of the GA Peach Authors but resigned due to health issues. I remember sitting in the parking lot of Panera Bread one Friday evening as I talked to her for over 2 and a half hours like we had always known each other.We laughed so much. That's how I will always remember her, laughing and smiling and speaking proudly of her daughter.

    She was such a sweet spirit who always, even in the midst of her health issues, had a smile on her face and a positive deposition. I spoke to Dee about two weeks ago when she reached out to me for a blurb for her upcoming novel and we started talking about her pending surgery. She was positive that things would go well and everything would work out. She talked about her daughter and asked that I continue to keep her and her family in my prayers. That was the last time I spoke to her. Life is short.

    RIP Dee. God has you now. You will be missed!

  3. Such sad news, she is written about on social media as a wonderful lady. I know she will be missed.
