Paula Stewart, 46, passed peacefully Monday, July 9, 2018 at New Hanover Regional Medical Center with her family by her side. Born December 16, 1971 in Matthews, NC, Paula was the youngest daughter of Elroy and the late Ruby Blackwell.
Paula was married to the late Deven Stewart and they were the proud parents of three wonderful children Brittany, Jenna and Brandon Stewart. In addition to her father and her children, Paula leaves behind to treasure her memory sisters Donna Newsom and her husband Edward and Pamela Wilson; nephews Jeramy Wilson, Bryan Newsom and Tyler Newsom; and grandchild Jayce Simmons.
Known to never meet a stranger, Paula was a free spirit who would start a conversation with anyone. She enjoyed cooking, working in her beautiful garden, and going to the beach or lake with her dogs. She loved spending time with her family and she will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
A private service will be held at a later date for immediate family members.
