Pauline Elizabeth Tolleson Stewart went home to be with our Lord and Savior on May 12, 2017. As God's Word tells us, The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance. - 2 Peter 3:9. Pauline, born December 15, 1923, in Anniston, Calhoun County, was the youngest child of George William and Nannie Pauline (Ashley) Tolleson. Pauline is preceeded in death by two sisters, Martha Tace Tolleson and Mildred (Tolleson) Rountree, and a brother, Bill Tolleson. Pauline shared life and love with her husband of 70 years, Loyd George Stewart, who died in 2014. Pauline is survived by daughter, Paula (Billy) Ingle; son, Eddie (Celia) Stewart, and grandson William Sims Stewart. Pauline and family lived in Jacksonville, until moving to Vestavia Hills in 1970. Pauline worked as a dental assistant until her children were born, then became a full-time mom and a Sunday school teacher. Pauline always enjoyed music, was a long-time member of Mountainwoods Garden Club and created beautiful art pieces from pressed flowers. After Loyd's retirement, Pauline enjoyed fishing and traveling with Loyd, plus spending time with their joy in life, grandson, Will. There is much love, plus many precious memories in the hearts of Pauline's family, as they miss her so much. Pauline's very special and loving care-givers these past years were Bernie Moore, Charlotte Broom, LeTonia Jackson, Beatrice Connor, Jamie Rice and Brittany Rice. Also, special thanks also to Amedisys Hospice. Perhaps the most special bond with Pauline came from a precious little poodle named Gidget, theirs was a love at first sight! Memorial service will be held at Mountaintop Church, today, May 17, 2017, at 2 p.m. with Pastor Doug Ferguson officiating. Visitation will be at the church at 1 p.m. prior to the service. Pauline was cremated, and her ashes will be placed in the family lot in Jacksonville City Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests gifts be given to Mountaintop Church, 225 Centerview Drive, Vestavia Hills, AL 35216 in Pauline's memory.
