Kuna woman lived with kidney failure and dialysis treatment for more than 30 years

Although Carole Stewart was diagnosed with kidney failure, received four hour dialysis treatments three times a week for almost 30 years and survived three kidney transplants, her death at age 62 was completely unexpected, according to family. It was a bittersweet end to a life that wasn't overshadowed by pain. Rather, Carole Stewart's life will be best remembered by the happiness of seeing the first bumbling steps of her grandchildren, camping every weekend for years in Cascade, and the 44-year love affair she shared with David Stewart, her husband.
