Bobbie L. Stewart was a vivacious and intelligent businesswoman who dressed in a classic style, with unique style accents. She was 5'8" tall. She was a focused person who was the first in her family to attend a higher education program - St. Phillips College in San Antonio, after graduating from Anderson High School in 1952, which was then a segregated public high school. She married two times - divorcing her first husband, Johnny while in college, and marrying her second husband, Mayo Stewart, of whom she was widowed in 1977.

She worked at B&R BBQ from 1961 to 1971 and then became an associate at Sears Roebuck in Hancock Center for 15 years, from which she retired to become a caregiver for her ailing mother.

EARLY LIFE She was active in the youth program at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Littig, Texas, which is where she was baptized. After her family moved to Austin, she was active in the Greater Mount Zion Baptist Church, serving on Usher Board Group 2 until her health started to fail.

She did not learn how to drive a car because her brothers and (later) husband was able to take her on errands and to visit friends. She had many friends and was very social in the Austin community with both church and social gatherings. She loved music and appreciated a great meal, of which she was a great cook of both baked goods and gourmet items. She was active in the real estate market, owning and managing several properties.

She was a long-time smoker which contributed to the health issues in her latter years including emphysema and breast cancer.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Armon Wilson and Pauline Ross, her husband Mayo and brothers Doris, Armon Jr., thomas, Harold, Woodrow and George Wilson and one nephew, Russel Wilson.
