Mary Rachel Stuart, 91, of Conway, went to be with the Lord, Friday, September 28, 2018. She was born August 15, 1927 in Randolph, Mississippi to the late Walter Lee and Myra E. Tutor. Rachel married Carl Stuart in Pontotoc, Mississippi April 12, 1945. She was a member of Conway’s First Baptist Church. Rachel’s Savior and family were her love and joy, but she also enjoyed sewing, reading, baking, and playing Bridge. One could often find her in the kitchen, humming hymns, and whipping up her famous carrot cake. She was a generous woman, loving on others in whatever ways God laid on her heart. Rachel was a true friend to everyone she encountered. We will miss her fun and feisty spirit as well as her gracious countenance.
