Carol C. Stewart, 79, passed away Sunday, April 12, 2020 at The Wyoming Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in New Richmond, WV.
Born January 25, 1941 in Basin, WV, she was the daughter of the late Lawrence McKinney and Nora Shrewsbury McKinney.
Carol was a 1958 Graduate of Pineville High School and a graduate of Concord College where she was cheerleader and a member of the Delta Zeta Sorority. She enjoyed a thirty-five-year career teaching business classes to hundreds of students at Oceana High School. She was a member of the Oceana Alumni Association and the GFWC Pineville Woman’s Club. She also served as an Elder at Pineville Presbyterian Church.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, Larry; a son, Shannon; and brothers, Don, Newman and Willie McKinney.
Those left to cherish her memory are her children, Kevin Stewart and wife Belinda of Pineville, Melinda Vance and husband John of Pineville and Dr. Sunni Martin and husband Anthony of Proctorville, OH; grandchildren, Amanda, Jacob and Emily Stewart, Josie Cunningham, Joseph and Gabby Lupardus, Ty Eller, Tucker Vance and Skyla and Harley Martin; and great-grandchildren, Grayson and Garrett Dillion.
Those around Carol, especially her children and grandchildren, enjoyed her playful banter but relished in her devout, unconditional love. Carol truly loved her family (and her four-legged critters) deeply. Her family remembers her as superwoman for enduring the many losses she has, most notable her dear son, Shannon Ray, with such grace and poise.
In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorial donations be made to Pineville Presbyterian Church, PO Box 493, Pineville, WV 24874.
