Barbara was born December 6, 1957, in Nashville, TN to John and Sarah Stewart.

Barbara is remembered with love by her two children Derrick and Cameron. Barbara is also survived by her sister Deborah, daughter-in-law Casey and grandson Jason.
Barbara had a passion for serving people. That passion for serving made her an exceptional and outstanding police officer. Her passion and hard work was influential to the people she served, her close friends and family in Blue, and most of all her daughter who is now excelling in her own career as a remarkable Police Officer. Barbara had a love for animals, she loved and cared for a multitude of pets including dogs, cats, and horses. She hardly passed up a stray to love and nurse back to health. Barbara's pallbearers, representing those she was closest to in her life, now ceremonially carrying her in death, are her best friends Judy and Kim, her "adopted" daughters Lida and Coy, and her children Cam�e (Cameron) and Doogie (Derrick).
