Dierdre Stewart, 59, of Glendale, Arizona, unexpectedly went to be with her Lord October 11, 2021. Dierdre’s dry sense of humor and sharp tongue could make you laugh uncontrollably and cry all at the same time. Dierdre loved her family deeply and was the most loyal friend to many. She was fiercely protective of her brother, Alan Stewart, cousins Zina (Kurt) Sheppard, Regina Akers, Derrick (Monica) Akers, Michelle Akers, Anthony “Tony” (Nikol) Akers, Jadyn Akers and Godchildren, Kaleena Sheppard, Roland Walker, Roshaun Walker, Hunter Engel and Landon Engel. She was affectionately known as Deedee, Sister, Cousin, Cuz, Dee and DLo. Dierdre was a devoted Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings fan. She loved getting together with family and friends to play cards and games. She loved all genres of music and was an avid reader. Dierdre was never without her Tablet, Kindle, or iPod. Her Mother, Barbara Stewart preceded her in death. Dierdre is survived by her brother, Alan, Aunt, Helen Williams (who she thought of as a second mother), Uncle, Alan (Madelyn) Akers, and a whole host of cousins, relatives, Godchildren and friends. Her untimely passing leaves a tremendous hole in our hearts. She was a dedicated 24 year employee of Albertsons/Safeway. Dierdre loved her position as an Allowance Lead; working along side her beloved manager and friend, Rhonda Hellman. Her extended family of close friends include Antionette “Toni” (Lloyd) Hardin, Stephanie (Kevin) Engel, Selvana (Roland) Walker, Anita (Roy) Swagger. Our sincere gratitude to both the Glendale Fire Department Crisis Team and Glendale Police Department for the grace, care, compassion and empathy shown to Dierdre and family.
