Mrs. Mary Carol Wooten Stewart (nee Copeland) passed away on Wednesday, June 21st. The family will receive friends at 11:00 AM on Monday, June 26th, at Jefferson Memorial in Trussville, AL. The funeral will be at 12:00 PM at Jefferson Memorial, followed by a brief graveside service. She is survived by her sister, Diane Copeland, seven children: Patti Merritt (Gary), Keith Wooten (Myra), Craig Wooten (Karen), Mark Wooten (Wendy), Myra Wooten (Keith), Jan Anderson (Larry), Matt Stewart (Andrea), fifteen grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husbands, Gene Wooten and Bill Stewart, her son, Michael Stewart (Jill), her parents, Patrick and Savannah Copeland, and four siblings, Barbara Ann Copeland, Patsy Copeland, Betty Copeland Miller, and Bill Copeland.

Mary Carol grew up in the Central Park section of Birmingham, AL, and attended Ensley High School. She met and married her first husband, Gene Wooten, and later moved to Tampa, FL, where Patti was born. They then moved back to Birmingham, where Keith, Craig, and Mark were born. Mary Carol and Gene attended Huffman United Methodist Church for many years. Gene passed away in 1984. Mary Carol later married Bill Stewart in 1991, father of Michael, Myra, Jan, and Matt. Bill passed away in 2013.

Mary Carol was fully devoted to her family and their happiness, and was very proud of all her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She was a faithful caregiver to both Gene and Bill during times of illness. She had a wanderlust, and traveled the world for many years, visiting places like Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and many more. She was well-known in the Birmingham Friendship Force for being a fun and patient travel companion. She was a great cook, a bargain hunter (and finder), and a stylish dresser. She liked watching sports and pulling for the underdogs. But mostly, she was devoted to her family and did everything she could to help them be successful.
