Jessie Lou (Walters) Stewart, 91, was welcomed to her heavenly home on Wednesday, December 13, 2023 at Wellbrooke of Crawfordsville. She was born on November 20, 1932, the daughter of Homer Laurence and Louise (Paddack) Walters.
Jessie graduated from Crawfordsville High School in 1950. She married Alan Stewart on August 22, 1952 at Trinity Methodist Church, spending over 54 years together until his passing on February 24, 2006. She worked at RR Donnelly in cost/payroll department, was the co-owner of Stewart Bishop Chuck Wagon and was the owner of Stewart's Cafeteria at Nucor Steel, until her retirement in 1997.
Jessie was a longtime member of the New Ross United Methodist Church, Bryon Cox American Legion Aux. and Roachdale VFW Aux. She was a volunteer at Hendricks County Hospital in Danville, IN and Golden Girls of New Ross and Mace Churches.
