Vivian Lee Stewart, daughter of William and Virginia
Bigby was born July 13, 1935 in Baltimore Maryland. She
gained her wings on June 14, 2022.
Vivian received her education in Catholic Schools where
she earned her diploma. Early on Vivian met Patrick
Stewart Sr., affectionately known as Boobie. The two fell in
love, married and had four loving son's: Patrick, Ronald,
David and Corey. Shortly after Vivian went on to work for
The State of Maryland at RICA. There she cared for and
attended to hundreds of children throughout her career.
She loved her job and after many years she retired.
Raised by her mother, Vivian spent most her childhood
alongside her mom and aunt Irene (who was more like a
sister; affectionately known as Reeny).
Vivian had a large family and many friends, she was the
light and mold of her family. She always kept an open door
for her loved ones. Vivian hosted many family reunions,
bus trips, parties or just dinners at home. Her home was
always filled with joy and laughter. Vivian was one of the
three "Golden Girls" Vivian, Irene and Catherine (who pre-
ceded her in death). Those three sure knew how to party.
Vivian had so many hobbies; cooking, crabbing, ceramies,
sewing and gardening, just to name a few. She loved flow-
ers and plants and gave all her children her green thumb
She often took her grandkids crabbing and to ceramic
classes. Vivian was very stylish, she loved fashion and loved
to look fabulous! She even owned "Vivian's Fashion Force"
and took great pride in her store. Vivian's cooking was one
of a kind. Her many recipes, from soul food to baked goods,
graced us all. She was a true boy mom. Vivian loved all
her children. Her sons and grandsons could do no wrong
in her eyes. They were her pride and Joy.
Vivian's legacy will live on and be cherished
forever. Her words of wisdom, her cooking, energy and
sense of style, along with all the love she had for her family
and friends will be missed.
