Beverly Jean Stewart left this earthly existence on Oct. 28, 2021, in Rosamond, California. She was born March 8, 1968, in Little Rock, Arkansas, to parents Joe and Erma Stewart. She was 53 years old.
Beverly grew up in Conway, Arkansas, and was a graduate of Conway High School. She then attended University of Central Arkansas and Pulaski Technical College. She enjoyed a successful career as an Aerospace designer and engineer, of which she was quite proud. Beverly started her career at Dassault Falcon Jet in Little Rock, and then went on to work at Bell Helicopter and Lockheed Martin in Ft. Worth, TX; Spirit Aerosystems and Nordam in Tulsa, OK; Gulfstream Aerospace in Savannah, GA; and The Spaceship Company in Mojave, CA.
Beverly was preceded in death by her father, Joe Francis Stewart, of Naylor, Arkansas; and her sister, Brenda Jane Stewart Nickols of Quitman, Arkansas. She is survived by her mother, Erma Stewart; siblings, Billy Stewart and Shelly Stewart; sister-in-law Marilyn Stewart; niece and nephew-in-law, Lindsay and Josh Murray, all of Conway, Arkansas; and nephew and niece, Parker and Drew Benton, of Quitman, Arkansas.
Beverly was truly a free spirit; so adventurous, so fun to be with and so funny. When she set her mind to something, there was nothing that could stop her from accomplishing her goals. She had the kindest of hearts and the bravest of souls. She was generous to a fault and would give anything to friends and family, as well as to people on the street in need, no questions asked. She had a great love and compassion for animals, often "adopting" the wildlife that lived around her, and would always come to the rescue if she encountered a sick or injured animal. Beverly was a wonderful and caring sister and daughter, and a beloved friend to many. She will be missed greatly by all who knew her. The world is a little less bright without Beverly's light.
Memorial Service TBA. If you would like to make a contribution, please donate to an animal charity of your choice in Beverly's memory.
